Episode 5 of the Cigar Sense Podcast is dedicated to cigar sensory evaluations. Cigar reviews : many don’t make sense for consumers. Did you ever try to justify your friend reviewer with “we don’t have the same palate” or even with “cigar samples are never the same”?
If you did, you might be influenced by cigar reviews conceived for short term benefits of cigar companies and media companies, not so much for consumers. Why do those consumers who want to make informed and educated purchasing decisions need a different level of information? In this episode we discuss this and talk about the questions that cigar reviews need to answer in order to benefit consumers.
We also talk about the best tools to ensure that cigar reviews are objective and mention a few of the most common biases affecting cigar reviews.
