It has been a while since I have had a chance to sit down and let loose with another rant – what better time and place then with a great cigar, couple fingers of fantastic scotch and loud music. First, I want to thank you all for taking the time to sit down (some perhaps a bit more excited than others) and read over my latest rant. We all know that at times – hell who am I kidding – a lot, I tend to turn off my filter and release a bit more truth (in my opinion) than some would like me to or I purposely say or hint towards something simply in hopes to get the blood pressure of some to rise, so I present this as more a discussion I would like for you all to comment on than rather a full fledged ‘rant’ – I promise though, I will do my best to get ticked off about something and let loose soon!
That being said, I have to put a big preface that I’m not going to be mother fucking or ball busting too much but rather stating some observations and requesting those who are more knowledgeable (hell, I’ve only been smoking cigars for 3-4 years so my experience is still very limited) to give me a bit of an education. What I want to learn about, is the different methods that ‘could’ be used or ‘are’ being used to ‘cut corners’ while within the manufacturing process – I’m talking all the way from the seed stock to the quality of wood used during aging.
