Default Re: Reviews are Almost Worthless...

reviewing things like tobacco and alcohol i think are very hard. look at cigars, not only do you have the variations of what notes people will taste (one person tastes vanilla, another says its cream, another says toffee), then of course the preference, then the variation between the tobaccos that are in each cigar. same thing probably happens in shisha. then add in the flavorings and you will get a lot of variation. heck take tangiers, i am alright with the brand as a whole but honestly if i could get the same flavoring but in a tangiers tobacco/style i would probably like it more and thus have better reviews about it

i agree a lot of reviews are lacking, and when i review i try to be descriptive and unbiased in descriptions of taste as best as i can and limit my personal feelings to the end
