I about threw an anejo in the mix to see if you guys could tell, but I take it too personal on expensive cigars when guys dog em out. When guys busted my balls after smoking San Cristobals and Coranados bLF the last time I wasn't real receptive to their opinions any more.
Plus I found ten that I thought (we will see?) would be fun for reviews pretty easily.

I started out smoking almost exclusively Fuente. But my tastes have changed. I've never smoked an Opus or Anejo, but the last good Fuente I smoked (Sungrown Cuban Belicoso) was horrible, so I wouldn't want to think my reviews suck b/c of one stick.

I see your point. I would be a little upset if I was called out on what I thought was a great premium cigar, and the person I sent it to said it sucked.

Taste is in the "eye" of the beholder. It's funny but some less expensive stick I enjoy just as much as the top shelf stuff. Tthat's why I think it's great to mix em up... so people can see what they really like not what there supposed to like.

Well, I think a couple of guys were trying to be entertaining critics instead of just reviewing the cigars.

"Not I," said the goat. I try to be as fair as possible. I don't try to impress anyone with my reviews; I just like to share my experiences of good cigars (and some bad ones too).

No, this was from a time before. You guys did a great job; that's why I thought it would be fun to continue this. If more people follow it and want to play along next month, you may actually get to smoke a cigar with a band on it before the snow flies!
