Would a review like this get me flogged?

I don't know if I want to deal with a forum where reviews are like that. Hell, I sometimes feel uppity if I write that I tastes nuts or chocolate or coffee.

And, by the way, I've tasted slate you don't want your cigar to taste like slate. YUK!!!


Grinch OUT!!!

too bad it doesn't list the cigar being reviewed.

I've seen a few of the gorillas around here describe their simple categories, and I use them all the time.

I usually divide my sticks according to two groups:

"Sucks" or "Doesn't Suck" :D
 
Did this come from Cigar Afficiando? I hate their reviews. "A touch of pencil lead on the finish with a hint of WHO GIVES A CRAP!!" Sometimes I wish review were kept to two words. Good, or Bad. I just smoked a cigar.. so a review will come soon. Definitly won't be like this one. Apologies to my english professor.

I may be the minority, but I highly enjoy the art of smoking and to me that involves tasting the intricasies that abound there in. Like anything else I indulge in, I prefer to contemplate on the item itself, whether it be a cigar, wine, scotch, food, etc. This review does take tasting to the extreme, but the derogatory comments towards someone who can taste certain flavors others cant/wont, slows the process. I am not the kind of person who can just black or white something, so I for one, enjoy discerning the different flavors that abound in every cigar I smoke. Just my two cents.

1) get back to work
2) buy a dictionary
3) lay off the 'shrooms

I prefer reviews that are more straightforward and "down to earth", which is why I put a lot of faith in CS reviews. The review posted looks like it came straight out of Cigar Aficionado. I guess if the reviewer can taste all of those nuances, more power to them, but slate is not an acquired taste - in fact, it is not a taste at all [insert skepticism and sarcasm here].

"Kalamata Olive areas" also threw me for a bit of a loop.

I try to sense the nuances and complexities of cigars, wine, etc., even if I'm not terribly good at it. Making an effort to discern different flavors is part of the experience for me. But a guy who says "reddish brown" and "kalamata olive" with "tan vein lines" is clearly hallucinating. Sounds like he had fun though.

Ok I can see the chocolate, peppercorns even the grass but who here knows what the hell slate tastes like? And the bigger question..... why would you know that?
I don't think I want my taste buds that refined.
