I smoked another Amazon tonight. It lasted the entire length of Casablanca, all 142 minutes, and then some. It never burned hot. Extremely enjoyable. It's like smoking the GOL, but it lasts another 45 minutes or so. This may be my new go to cigar when watching a movie.

I prefer 52 and smaller ring gauge smokes. That said, I have had some of the bigger smokes.
I've had the Lunatic 7 x 70, an LFD 7x70, and some of the Asylum 13 7x70 smokes. I usually get tired of the flavor of the smoke before it is finished. I get bored with the cigar.

I have also smoked 2 Puros Indios Chiefs, one maduro and one natural. 1.8ftx69. Talk about an all day cigar! Maduro burned well. The natural had such a hard draw that I got a head ache smoking it.
I've also smoked a Drew Estate Egg. Once the cigar got to the widest portion I had to almost puff constantly to keep it lit. Needless to say it got hot quick.

6x50 is as big as I go. Everything larger than a mouthful is wasted.

I'm glad some of you enjoy these, but I'm not putting a 1 inch plus diameter brown cylinder in my mouth, just saying

Here's the biggest cigar I ever saw someone try to smoke. It was a Puros Indios Chief. Someone lost a bet and had to smoke it, he gave up after 3+ hours. Here's a photo of one.
It's a 18 x 66 monster, but still a long filler cigar. (ok small pun intended)

I've learned to limit the using of words like " I'll Never" and "I won't ever" from my past experiences.


Cheers!
