Who the heck is this guy?

Howdy!  I am Gray Hogan of internet fame.   No, not really.  I’m just a guy who likes cigars and was told by his wife to “go make a website about it.”  I am sure there is some ulterior motive there, having to do with staying out of her hair.  That said, I DO like cigars.  I have written a ton of reviews here with the ethos that your time is valuable, and you want the meat and potatoes of a review.  “Should I get this?” is the prevalent question for all of my reviews.

I like cigars that have meat to them.  I’ll take a full flavored knockout over a wimpy claro style any day of the week and twice on Sunday.  I have a few points that I evaluate each cigar on.

Construction: 

This describes if the thing held an ash, came apart at the cap, or started to unravel on me.  It’s not based on humidification (I use Boveda’s anyway, so that’s a moot point).

Flavor:

Did it taste good?  This, like most of these, is subjective.  Did I enjoy the flavor of it?

Duration: 

How long did it taste good?  This isn’t the same metric as a lot of sites where they say it lasted an hour, or 5, or however long.  You smoke at your own pace.  This is about flavor country.

Strength:

I grade on a curve.  If I say it is medium to full, it probably is more full than medium.  If I say it’s a knockout, you shouldn’t smoke that if you’re new to cigars.  As a matter of fact, I actually have a recommended Experience level for that very reason.

So, there it is.  If you have a question, shoot me a line here or at grayhogan at gmail.com!
