Time Should Decide What Shape of Cigar to Smoke

When shape (size) is right for you, knowing you have a favorite brand, will be impacted by the amount of time you would have to fully enjoy the taste. An example:

If the start of your day is rushed, then perhaps a Panatela (6 x 38) or a Corona (5.5 x 42), which will be a mild to medium body, with a fine coffee will awake the senses.

As the day moves on, or if this is your preferred time of the day to smoke your brand, then Robusto (5 x 50) or Lonsdale (6.5 x 42) may offer that pleasure, with full body. As the day ends, and it is your time for relaxation, and given you have your brand, a shape may well be a Churchill (7 x 47), or a Torpedo (6.5 x 52) of a full body type.

There is another consideration, and that is having a “collection” of brands, which depending on the time of day you best enjoy your cigars, is very common for cigar smokers.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Remp about this subject and it will change the way I approach cigar selection, radically. This approach makes so much sense it should be more widely appreciated.
