My palate says partly something else

1st place for the Davidoff Dominicana is well deserved. It is a great cigar! I was surprised that my ratings were partly worlds different, compared to the other participants. The New World Cameroon Short Robusto, for example, ended up in last place. With me, it achieved 1st place.


Testing the cigars was done with the anillas, and not "blind". One knew which brand one was testing. Psychology also plays a certain role. If someone does not like the Anilla, it may be that you also like the cigar less.

I wrote to Manuel that I would probably have to change my tongue. He replied that "we old hands have a slightly different taste". Well, I feel as an "old hand" but still squeaky clean 😉

Conclusion and the evaluation sheet

A great way to be able to rate your cigars online. Manuel's has implemented this very clearly and filling out the ratings was self-explanatory and easy. Now the Manuel would only have to offer such a tool for all his cigars and customers.

The evaluation sheet was included with the order.

It was possible to fill in the evaluation form on paper and then transfer the results online.

Or even better: Against payment, all cigar connoisseurs could use this tool and also rate their own cigars. Of course with stock / storage location (so in which humidor these cigars are) / By pressing a button trigger the order at Manuel's.


Now I may have put a flea in his ear.
