Craig Vanderslice turned to cyberspace in 1996 to explore his interest in the world of cigars and in the process came upon many newsgroups, chat rooms, websites and podcasts devoted to the subject. In the years since, Craig has gained many wonderful friends that include fellow Brothers of the Leaf and cigar industry professionals. Now Craig’s chronicling his personal cigar adventures via his own website, www.CigarCraig.com, where he will review cigars, cigar magazines, cigar bars, cigar accessories, and anything else that he damn well pleases. Along the way, Craig will be sharing his marvels and misfortunes that will no doubt involve his cigar smoking friends and family.
The Rating Scale
I’ve instituted a tongue-in-cheek ratings scale that is a ten point scale from 91-100, with 100 being the best cigar ever and 91 being abysmal. Basically, it’s a 1-10 scale poking fun at other rating scales. So if you see someone saying that they got a 93 rating on CigarCraig.com, you can have a little chuckle along with me.
While I rarely if ever ask for samples to review, when I receive gratis cigars I’ll disclose that, and always offer my opinion of those cigars just as I would ones I paid for. I occasionally receive items to give away in contest, and many times will offer contest items from my own humidor and any costs associated with the contests are paid for by me.
