Yeah, that kinda sucks trying to tell a nice guy his sticks are blah. Maybe you could have very subtly given him some constructive criticism.I met him last week at an event in MD. As much as I wanted to tell him that his latest cigar (Retro) falls flat on its face about 1/3rd of the way in....I just couldn't. He is super nice and very polite and grateful to everyone that comes out to see him. Would have been much easier if he was an @$$.
