The characteristics of big cigars

The cigar leaves that are used to make Terry’s favorite big cigars are of excellent quality. 

Terry Pomerantz likes Dominican and Cuban cigars that use Corojo for the wrapper and Maduro for the filler.

Their length, diameter and gauge determine the size of the big cigars

The longer a cigar is, the larger its diameter and the more we talk about a “big” cigar. 

For example, a Churchill Romeo & Julieta No. 2 with a length of 178 mm and a band of 47 will be considered a “big” cigar.

In comparison, a Cohiba Panetela with a length of 115 mm and a band of 26 can be considered a “small” cigar.
