Various media sites have provided some details in regards to how their review scores match up in certain categories. In addition to this, William Cooper from Cigar Coop added some additional transparency as he showed info in regards to how his numbers stacked up in categories such as sponsors vs. non-sponsors and manufacturer samples vs. self acquired cigars and he encouraged other media brands to explore these same areas. We found this very interesting, and we always enjoy analyzing data, so we’ve gone ahead and put together our numbers for various categories and are sharing them here with you.
The numbers here are all coming from the reviews we did for our definition of the 2022 cigar year which includes cigars released between November 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022.
Total full team reviews (all four members of the site): 100
