A question and a poll...STOP - VOTE AGAIN ON THE OTHER POLL

Do you prefer to see here the succinct sort of cigar reviews that you find in CA or in "professional" listings OR do you like the more expansive descriptions of the entire smoking experience? (How it was kept, what it was accompanied by, a blow by blow description during smoking, etc.)...Enquiring minds want to know...

GEEZ - Sorry folks but I guess I forgot to click "add" to the last voting option. I've restarted the poll in another thread...

Cigar smoking is an experience that goes beyond the clinical basics. I like to get a feel for the whole experience.

I usually like the story as much or more than I like the actual tasting notes.

An Elk Twin or Jazznut review beats the poop out of a CA review any day of the week. Just my $.02.

Its fun to read more expanded reviews. People's personality and experience come through (or lack thereof) in longer reviews, as well as humor. And if its too long I just scroll through it quick and get to the important parts.

Slightly expanded. Not 2 pages worth.
