In the article, Jonathan Detore writes "Cigars have been fattened up, stretched out, crushed, triangle-pressed, and probably curved for no good reason other than to say "We've just created a Crescent Moon shaped cigar that we shall call 'Petite Corona!'" It's time to make a stand and re-educate the masses on TRUE cigar sizes and what they offer."

He goes on to argue "In a world that defines Robustos as 5 x 58, Churchills as 6 x 40, and Toros as 7 x 54, it's time to reel in the true definitions of the original and classic vitolas that have been gracing our industry for over two centuries. We have become enamored with odd shapes and sizes, yet the true cigars lie within these classic sizes."

Included in the article are 8 classic cigar sizes ranging from the original Corona sized cigar, to Robusto, Churchill, and even cites the difference between a Panatela and Lancero. He also includes what the most common size cigar manufacturers blend their cigars, what different sizes effect is on flavor, burn times, burn temperature, and even breaks down exactly what cigar size means. This is a true all-encompassing article, and a great resource for anyone looking to learn more about cigar sizes.
