Understanding the Toro-Sized Cigar

Understanding the Toro-Sized Cigar

When it comes to cigar sizes, many smokers have their preferred choices for different occasions. While the difference between a Toro and a Robusto isn’t vast, it is significant enough to influence your smoking experience. In an earlier discussion about Robusto cigars, we noted that they typically range from 4 ½ to 5 ½ inches in length with a ring gauge of 48-50.


A Toro, on the other hand, is usually around 6 inches long with a ring gauge of 50-52. Many aficionados favor Toro cigars because they strike a perfect balance—not too short, not too long, not too thick, and not too thin. This size allows the cigar to tell a complete “story” through its smoke.

With long, thin cigars like Lonsdales, the wrapper’s flavor can dominate the blend, sometimes more than desired. Conversely, shorter, fatter cigars can let the filler tobaccos overwhelm the blend, resulting in a very strong smoke.

Smoking a Toro provides a balanced experience. You get an ideal mix of wrapper flavor and filler strength, creating a harmonious smoking session. For me, when sampling a new brand, I often choose a Toro size first. It offers the best preview of the cigar’s flavor profile and strength.

Some of my favorite Toro-sized cigars include Montecristo White Series, Joya de Nicaragua Antano Connecticut, Foundation Charter Oak, and Aganorsa Signature Selection. While there are many options out there, you can’t go wrong with these recommendations.
