So what do you all think as far as the relationship between ring guage
and flavor? The La Mancha by the way didn't really do it for me, a
little bland.


The larger ring gauges have, in general, more full flavors because of
the different types of tobacco they can stuff into the cigar. Diamond
Crown, many robustos, are some examples.

The smaller ring gauge cigars can burn a bit hotter and are packed
with stronger tobaccos (in some cigars) and can be very strong. Monte
4, Bolivar corona chica, Party short are examples of powerhouse
strengths in small packages.
