How To Rate a Cigar?

This article from halfwheel, written by Charlie Minato, does a great job of explaining the process they take to rate cigars. He goes into detail describing the process needed to properly and efficiently rate a cigar. Also, check out Jason’s post “My Father La Opulencia”, he does a wonderful job of reviewing and rating his cigar. Hope this is helpful to anyone interested in keeping a notebook that has cigar notes in it or if you wanna share your cigar experience with your friends!
