Who Are We

Who Are We
First, we are Cigar Sensory Analysts, continuously trained according to sensory analysis standards. Our analysts are from Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, North and South America.

Who Are We?

I am thrilled to be able to dedicate my work to those fine cigar lovers who, like me, are always searching new cigars to try. Not just any cigar, but the cigar that will delight our palate.

An important trial and error, like the one I went through when I moved from Italy to the US in 2013, can be extremely frustrating. Premium cigars are not cheap and the time we want to set aside for them is even more precious.

I believe, and Cigar Sense data confirms this, that every cigar has a chance to be appreciated by up to 65% of cigar lovers, depending on their tastes, which vary based on individuals, but also based on world regions, as they are closely bound to culture. This is why I want to offer tools and independent information to empower fine cigar lovers to make educated purchases and to fully enjoy their new cigars, through a journey that leads us to talk the same cigar tasting language. I love to think of Cigar Sense as the place where I can tell you

“I believe you will like this cigar, try it and tell me what you think”

Cigar Sense is not just me. It could not exist without David Wells, my partner in business and life, and our team of trained international tasters, whose blind tests results are invaluable to grow our detailed database.

We are all extremely honored by the Cigar Journal jury decision to recognize Cigar Sense as a notable ambassador in the cigar culture in September 2017.
