    I'll be the first to admit that I'm a rating's snob when it comes to my sticks. I see a 90's rating as a supermodel that I just have to have. Now I'm coming to you for the "Girl Next Door" type cigar. Anyone have any good suggestions of any great 80's that I might be missing out on. I tend to...
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    I have been thinking about ratings quite a bit as of late and I have decided that they are purely a marketing ploy (or ALMOST purely). They are one person's opinion of a particular smoke...and as we all know, no two peoples sense of taste is exactly the same (yes, I almost wrote: "no two people...

    My memory isn't too good to remember which cigar was worth buying again, how it matured... So I started taking the band and writing on the back of it the date smoked and comments on flavor/burn. I plan on keeping three stacks. A buy again stack, a worth another purchase/still undecided and a not...

    So, I've noticed the information in the Top 25 seems to be staying the same. For example, the #1 Oliva has been stuck on the rating of 9.14 since, well, I guess since I signed up a couple of years ago. Seems like the # would at least move a little one way or the other. Is there an explanation...

    How does a magazine like Cigar Aficianado decide which brands to review? Is it based on retail sales? I'm curious because there are lots of B&Ms out there with house blends that blow premium cigars out of the water. How does a house blend get their cigar reviewed by CA? Or do they not qualify?

    Who do you go to for cigar ratings? It seems more and more I see cigars rated in the low 90's that I've never heard of before. Granted, I don't keep up on all the new stuff being released but I have a real problem with the same company rating the cigar that is selling it! Even if the ratings...

    Hey guys, :laugh: I just wrote this up to explain to those who may be wondering how the rating system works for Diplomacy of Middle Earth. This article will also be posted in the game itself for ease of access to view at any time, but I figured I might as well post it here as well so I can get...

    Does anyone here have an insider subscription to CA and can list the cigars with 95-100 ratings for me
  10. General Cigar Discussion
    I looked at the latest Smoke Magazine and knoticed that the ratings where mostly between 88 to 91, with hardly any above or below. My question is, If most cigars are in this range - wouldn't it make these ciagars "average" You know "middle of the pack? It seems as if the bar should be...
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    Anyone else here think the 100 point cigar rating system seems a bit off. I mean you never really see a cigar lower than an 82. Seems more like a 20 point system with everyone spoted 80 points.

    Our friend Houdini began his one man campaign against KMTV! I have pictures but have not downloaded yet. Harry sent me a very thoughtful IED that went boom in my face from his friends in Jersey. A Holt's Ballcap and Sopranos 4-cigar gift pack will go up in flames very soon! Thanks Harry, you...

    I am a computer programmer. I created a very low tech Microsoft Access database to write down the name of your cigar, your rating, price paid, and any comments you want to write. You can also print out a report of all the cigars you smoked. As long as you have Microsoft Access, you can use...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    It struck me awhile ago that when CA displays their ratings for cigars the CC's that are reviewed have box time while the NC's do not. How is if fair to review a CC with over five years of age to a NC with no listed box time? :confused:

    I sold some padrons and would like to learn how to use the trader / for sale rating system.
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    Is CA magazine guilty of ratings inflation? Some issues, it seems like every other cigar is rated 90+. Now, I know there are plenty of people in these forums who consider CA reviews worthless, but I have a question for those of us who at least use their ratings as a starting point to identify...
  17. Cigar Questions
    My first post, eh ... There are lots of different cigar ratings around. Here are three and how I interpret them (today). YMMV. 1. There are some searchable ratings, but to get more ratings you have to visit the site regularly and download the latest...
  18. Cigar Accessory Reviews
    I added this EC a few days ago, because no one had done so yet. I was kinda surprised with it being a Don Pepin product. Anyways, my review is up and everyone who has experience with these should add comments. I know this is a great resource and I utilize it almost everyday when looking for new...
