This quote from one of Mark Twain’s writings sums up my philosophy on cigars.

” As concerns tobacco, there are many superstitions. And the
chiefest is this–that there is a STANDARD governing the matter,
whereas there is nothing of the kind. Each man’s own preference
is the only standard for him, the only one which he can accept,
the only one which can command him. A congress of all the
tobacco-lovers in the world could not elect a standard which
would be binding upon you or me, or would even much influence us.” -Mark Twain
