    Blind Cigar Review - Pay it Forward #2

    Alright guys, we have had an influx of new members since this thing was last going, so let’s kick it off again and give some of the new blood, as well as the old (Doc, can you still hold a cigar still enough to smoke it?) a chance to show off their blind review skills! Cory had a great basis so we will use that foundation and build on it so please read it to get the general idea. The main point we need to stress is only participate if you can/will be able to follow the time guidelines set below. This will avoid a clusterphuck in the long run and make for a much more enjoyable experience.

    The Purpose: To give members the chance to try some new sticks and/or some of your favorites and to take a shot at doing a blind review. Have fun!

    The Process:
    • When someone asks "Who wants it" say "GIMME!"
    • Within 24 hours of receiving the sticks (one of which will be unbanded) post a picture of your haul and ask the question.
    • Once you ask "who wants it" please ship within 48 hours to keep it moving and PM the recipient with the DC#.
    • Go to the Blind Cigar Review Thread #2 in the "Cigar Reviews | Watcha Been Smokin' Lately?" and post your review within 7-10 days.
    Guidelines:
    • Packages should be a minimum of 3 nice sticks, not necessarily super premiums but sticks you enjoy smoking.
    • Include the band from the blind review stick in an envelope for the reviewer to open after their review.
    • Follow the timelines the best you can. Things happen but lets do our best. :thumbs:
    • Have fun, be clever, try and find out a bit about who you are sending sticks to and play off that.
    If I missed anything please feel free to chime in with any thoughts, ideas or feedback.. Now that the formalities are out of the way, WHO WANTS IT!?! :whistling:

    My understanding is that Kingantz will get some sticks from denverdog and then will post in the thread "who wants it" in which case someone else says "GIMMIE" and is then sent sticks and the process repeats. Your offer was a bit premature and not within the rules.

    If I'm wrong then so be it...Jonas?

    You are absolutely correct, Greg. yorkcigar is of course free to send sticks to Gary and whoever else but as far as the BCR-PIF you are correct.

    Smokes arrived today and some fines smokes they are! Thank you Jonas for a wonderful selection! (eat your heart out Don! Ah hahaha :D ). That is one menacing looking mystery stick too. Think I may just have to smoke that one on a full belly. ;)
