Color: The darker a cigar is the stronger the smoke. Color ranges are Claro, Claro (green), Claro, (light tan to medium brown), Colorado (reddish to dark brown), Maduro (darkest brown), and Oscuro (black).
Length: The longer a cigar is the cooler the smoke. Most common cigars range between 5 - 6 inches.
Diameter: The diameter of the cigar is measured in rings of 1/64 of an inch. The fatter a cigar the more blends of tobacco it may contain.
If you're just getting started, then choose a cigar that is longer, thinner and lighter in color for a cooler smoke.
