Are tordedores overworked?
Hidee-ho, this is my first post on this forum.
I have noted in the past year that many more cigars have been rolled to tightly to enjoy, or have the very tight hard spots in the middle or towards the cap that you have to smooth out at risk of damaging the wrapper.
The only brands/producers I trust any more are Punch, AJ Fernandez, Alec Bradley, Rocky Patel, and Partagas - not necessarily in that order. It seems that quality control at many brands has been neglected and declining (to get the product out to meet rising demand?) for at least the past 2 years.
I only list the ones I trust in case someone else knows something about those producers that I don't, or about the ones I didn't list. I can edit the post if it offends forum sensibilities.
I have been smoking cigars for about 7 years and have one per day, between 1600 and 1730 to go with my afternoon cocktail(s).
