So having been here a while now I am always happy to participate in a critique as I get to try something new and interesting for free, plus it gives me a chance to sit down and enjoy a smoke with out interruption as I always tell the family I have to be able to concentrate on the cigar to give it a fair review and I will need a couple hours alone. As a parent of six those couple hours are like a mini vacation. Well I have volunteered and been selected for one of the August industry sponsored critiques and Brad (Vroomp) is helping coordinate it. A box arrives today with what I thought was the cigar for the critique, and I was right, but in true Geek fashion Brad decided to turn the critique into a bombing run. Once the smoke had cleared and the ringing in my ears subsided this is what I found. Thanx Brother, I never liked that mailbox anyway.

Sweet Man. With 6 kids running around you should find a way to smoke an average cigar in about 13 minutes.

LOL that sounds like a great deal for you. Not sure it explains why its hard to get volunteers. But I dont volunteer cause they will have to cross the boarder, and that can add extra time and be costly with taxes and duty.

I enjoyed doing my first critique for July. It was fun. But, I can't wait for the reviews to post so I can compare them. I'm hoping I'm to to far off base!!

Brad got me too. He made sure the cigar to be critiqued wasn't lonely on the trip south, sending four body guards.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated, Brad!  photo Brad1_zpsdt9kt33j.jpg

It can be a bit tough to keep the budget on track for cigars but by making certain sacrifices I can still afford my cigars. I only feed 5 of them dinner each night and one goes with out on a rotating basis so it's fair, then on Sunday every one eats. Figuring a meal at about 5 bucks that gives me about 30 buck's a week or 120 a month which is respectable enough to keep me in cigars and it's with minimal sacrifice by the kid's.

You know, I'd normally say "Well played, Brad", but vroomp has set a standard that is now the norm... so, "What's the big deal? Vroomp was sponsoring, right? Did anyone expect anything LESS?"
