Tobacco Reviews...

Post by JMG » Thu May 16, 2019 8:43 pm

I looked up some blends on tobaccoreviews.com. I'll just come out and say it...I really hate most of the reviews. Some people love reading that mess, I get it. We are all different and that's good. Some on that site as so overly pretentious that I just can't stomach it.

Ok. I'm done. Rant over.

I do enough typing every day on translating things so I don't like to do much of it elsewhere.

I hardly ever read the review sections. I look at the flavoring and their bar graphs on strength and scent.

I found this post to be robust, perhaps rugged even. It was smooth on the inhale and pleasant on the exhale. The aroma was reminiscent of my days as a lad, at the feet of my grandfather, the curmudgeon he was.

The title of this thread was deliberately and maliciously misleading.
Farts are either proof that God is a man or a sign of a fallen world.

My least favorite word to read in a tobacco review is 'cloying'.
