4 Thick Cuban Cigars That You Should Try
Thick Cuban Cigars have been rising in popularity over the years - and it shows no signs of stopping. It’s hard to imagine that about a decade or two ago, having ring gauges over 52 were only made by the select-few cigar makers. Now, thick cigars are being made and distributed all over the world, and countries like Cuba have caught on. It is incredibly easy to find a cigar with an over 50 ring gauge, and it won’t even be a surprise to find sticks that reach up to 60! Fernando Domínguez Valdés-Hevia, the co-president of Habanos, said that “Sales of heavy-ring-gauge cigars—50 or higher—account now for more than 50 per cent of Habanos S.A.’s total sales,” That is a substantial percentage! That means that, more than ever, cigar aficionados are opting for thicker cigars as opposed to other sizes. Perhaps it’s because of its eye-catching shape, or you’re going for that Churchill aesthetic - it is undeniable that these thick cigars are dominating the market. Keep in mind that having thicker ring gauges, mean that the distribution of tobacco will change.
