The Double Corona

Larger than its cousin the classic Corona, the Double Corona maxes out at 8 inches long. Its width goes up to a ring gauge of 52. The extra length and width of the Double Corona gives it a longer smoke time than the classic, lasting up to an hour for the typical smoker. Since the Double and classic are usually the same price, you may wish to go with the Double, provided of course, you have the extra time to enjoy it!

The Corona Grandes

Smaller the Double (despite its grand sounding name), the Corona Grandes weighs in at about six and a half inches in length, with a ring gauge of up to 46. Many consider the Grandes the best of the Corona. Expect it to last you around 50 minutes.

The Corona Royale

Also known as the Corona Extra, this cigar is larger than the classic, yet small than the Grandes. It is around five and a half inches long. Its ring gauge goes up to around 46. Smoked properly, you should be able to enjoy this mid-range cigar for close to forty minutes.

The Petite Corona

The last of the Coronas, the Petite, is shorter in length than its big brother the classic, ranging from four and a half to five inches in length, and showcasing a gauge ring of about 42. Because of its smaller size, you can probably get a good 20 minutes out of this cigar.

If you are finishing a double corona in 60 minutes or less, you need to slow down...a LOT! I'd say the same for most if not all of your other timie estimates. If you truely enjoy sucking down a cigar that quickly, you'll probably be amazed at how much better the cigar will be if you stick to the 'one puff per 45-60 second' rule of thumb.

I think you're supposed to let the cigar smolder and puff it gently from time to time, not light it on fire and and give it CPR. .;-)

The cigar times are definitely off, unless he's throwing away the cigar. with 2-3 inches left on each one.
