    Hi Pandora,
    I’m enjoying your site, your reviews and especially your you-tube video’s. Keep up the good work.

    I just found out how you calculate your review-scores. Do you equally divide points to the 5 categories – 20% each?

    I’d like to make my own system somewhat simpler, and you gave me some inspiration, but I don’t feel it’s right to only attribute 20% of a score to taste. What’s your view on this?

    have a nice day,

      Thank you David,

      I’m glad that you enjoy my reviews and find them useful.

      For the purposes of my published reviews, I do split the scores evenly in order to easily calculate an overall score. However, when I am putting together the final scoring for a cigar I have just smoked, I do weight it more towards enjoyment and flavour.

      I think that the most important part of smoking a cigar for me is the overall enjoyment. Obviously if the flavours, construction, etc are lacklustre, then the enjoyment score will be low, but equally I have smoked and really enjoyed cigars that have ultimately suffered with lack of flavour variety, crumbly ash or burn issues.

      I would suggest that alongside any scores you give a cigar, you make notes so that you can see why you gave a cigar a certain score. Perhaps having a score out of ten would work for you with 4 or 5 points going towards flavour and splitting the rest of the points as you feel deserve the weighting? I hope that this helps and that you keep enjoying your cigars.
