MAIN SHAPES & SIZES OF HABANOS

Habanos are recognized worldwide for their high quality, exquisiteness and exclusivity. There is a wide range of brands with more than 250 different types of cigars. The unit of measurement most frequently used to measure the length is millimeters (mm) and the diameter is known as “ring gauge”. Currently, Habanos cigars range from 100mm to over 230mm and their ring gauge varies from 26 to 60.

You may have often heard the word “vitola” mentioned among smokers. When they talk about vitola, they are referring to the size of the cigar.

There are two types of vitola:

  • Vitola de galera: this is the name given to the cigar at the factory.
  • Vitola de salida: the commercial name given to the cigar once it leaves the factory, which can be seen on the box.

It may happen that sometimes the name of the vitola de galera and the vitola de salida is the same, as is the case of the famous Cohiba Robusto, Montecristo Edmundo and Petit Edmundo.

Below, you can see some examples of the different vitolas de galera that exist and the commercial name they have once they leave the factory:
