We focus on consumers and on how they can benefit of cigar reviews. This is a list of our Ashton published cigar reviews for consumers. As our data grows, we grouped our objective reviews by cigar company, so as to make your reading easier.

PLEASE NOTE: the number of cigar analyses available to our members for their personalized recommendations is far higher than the number of these analyses, which are published for any visitor of our website.

Why objective cigar reviews for consumers?

We call them analyses, you might call them reviews. They are compiled based on detailed descriptions performed by our trained cigar analysts over ~150 attributes, following ISO sensory analysis norms. You can learn more about sensory analysis in this short podcast episode. We believe that applying sensory analysis is extremely important for the benefit of all industry actors but, above all, for consumers who seek the best sensory experience for themselves.

In fact, contrarily to subjective reviews, objective cigar reviews help consumers make educated purchases and find the cigars that best suit them. This happens because, as we focus on reproducibility. Also, the consumer who smokes another sample of the analyzed cigar will most likely recognize many of the sensory properties that we indicate. In this other short podcast episode on sensory evaluations we expand on this topic.

We dedicate our work to informed consumers who want to get the most out of their sensory cigar experiences and of their budget.
