Any number scale, even CA/CI's—which I do respect and take into account, is an attempt to substantiate a subjective experience.

I'd much rather hear how the cigar tasted to the reviewer; what it felt like, did it hold up all the way through, is it a cigar of quality—should I bother with it?

Plus, I've read reviews, even those of people whose opinions I respect, and seen a cigar they evidently they did NOT enjoy get scores of 7/10 or even 8/10. It just all seems skewed when you try to quantify the enjoyment in numbers.
Good point, though.
