I had my first cigars in my early twenties. Back then I thought Swishers were perfectly acceptable. Yeah, sorry... I've progressed since then. Years went by and I didn't really keep up with the hobby until the past 5 years. Now I feel that I am at a point where I can schlep my opinion of these glorious firesticks onto other people. So, in this post, I'd like to outline my rating system so you can follow along at home.
Each cigar will be described in five phases:
They will then be rated 1-5 on the following characteristics:
Finally, I will give you my general opinion of the cigar.
Hopefully, we can all find some good smokes and have a good time in the process.
