I hope everyone is having a great day. After a couple months of putting The Cigarmy on the backburner for various personal reasons, I'm finally beginning to get back in the swing of things. First up is a full revamp of the website - theme, interface, and....yes....even my review format. I've posted up how my reviews will be scored going forward. Give the criteria a runthrough if you get the chance and let me know if any of you fine folks see any glaring errors/omissions. Thanks!
More updates...and some gaps closed. The review guidelines in the original post have evolved now, into something very close to what I think is the final. In fact, it's now what I am going forward with until flaws come up to work themselves out. So give them another read if you're so inclined. ONE NOTE: They're fairly extensive at first glance. I tend to be a bit verbose when writing. Give it a chance. Marinate in it. I promise it's not nearly so complex as it appears on the surface. Feedback is much appreciated.
Also, I have finally gotten around to organizing some pictures from past Fuente/Newman Dominican trips. Feel free to peruse those as well. You can FIND THEM HERE. Thanks!
By the way I have been a reader of your site (most cigar blogs get my traffic). I am a huge cigar aficionado and love to read, learn, know whats going on in the market today. I am also a huge fan of cigar reviews, short or long doesn't matter. In my opinion I prefer the 100 point scale and a reasoning as well, let me know why you gave the cigar a 91 and explain. When I see a 9.1 it for some reason doesn't register the same way I have no idea why, just my personal preference and maybe it is from having subscriptions to 3 cigar mag's. Any ways thanks for letting us know about the changes and I look forward to reading your reviews.
Done! All based on a 100-point scale now!
OK....DONE! I updated everything from the stylesheet interpretations, the guideline descriptions, and the whole shebang. It all functions on a 100-point scale now. URL is the same if you'd like to check it out. The download for your own personal copy should be working as well.
