This Geek Critique has been generously sponsored by ninfiction (Brian).

The Cigar: Viaje Honey & Hand Grenades (HHG) Maduro Rapier

The Specs:
Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium-Full
Size: 6.5" x 44

Shipping: US & Canada addresses only

Due Date: August 25, 2021

The Hype:
We did a Geek Critique in May 2017 on the original HHG Rapier. So how do you improve upon a classic? You wrap it in a flawless San Andres Maduro wrapper. Viaje's fondness for San Andres is no secret, so when they began experimenting with Honey & Hand Grenades, this beautiful cover leaf was an obvious choice, and became the new HHG Maduro, which began shipping in June 2021.

The Reviewers:
Initially, volunteers should be Veteran status or higher and not doing the August review. This review will be due by August 25, so please, take into account your summer vacation schedule and only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and ninfiction will make the final selection.

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to ninfiction for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.
