Default Re: Keep Your Reviews HONEST! and UNBIASED!

In my latest video I decided to try a 1-5 scale. I think it's easier to use and understand.

1. Unbearable for whatever reason.
2. Has some decent qualities, maybe good smoke or whatever but lacks too much in other areas to be recommended.
3. Average. Not bad all around. Will definitely finish what I have, may or may not buy again.
4. Above average, will likely buy again.
5. Way above average, will definitely keep in stock.

Of course, it's all a matter of opinion in the end. People have different tastes and use different methods.
The 1-5 scale is all fine and well except that it doesn't say why exactly something is any given number or rate in any precise way how the reviewer weighs smoke quality/amount Vs. taste Vs. longevity Vs. smell or the overall value of the product. Take at look at my reviews and let me know what you think of the approach when you have a few minutes.
