    Not So Large Ring Gauge Cigars

    Hey Pete,

    Listened your interview with Dale on DWCR on the way home from work this evening and took particular note to your comments on the sizes of your new La Riqueza line (hope I spelled it right) and smaller ring cigars in general. Its nice to hear of a cigar maker that hasn't dove head first into the large ring guage fad.

    Might just be a Noella week for me....

    Couldn't agree more, Steve. Ring gauge bloat is a scourge. I want to taste the wrapper, dammit! I don't want to pay $8 for smoke where all I taste is filler. Hats off to Pete for going old school with some classic Cuban vitolas in the La Riqueza line.

    Thanks for the comments Steve and I appreciate the support. I am sorry that I did not have time to respond earlier.
    I am of lover of thin ring gauges and started with many of them 5 years ago.
    I will continue to make things like this for years to come.

    Thanks again and cheers!

    For myself - I think a smaller ring guage is a nice balance between filler -binder - and wrapper. I feel the taste of the wrapper gets somewhat lost on larger guage cigars.

    for me it really depends on the cigar. So are better with small ring guage - some are better with larger ring guage. Tats and illusions are great
