Herf 53 –A New Format

May 6th – Edmonds, WA
The following is a trial of our new format for posting herf reports.  As we are switching over to live-blogging during herfs, the contents posted here will be the result of that activity.

After each gathering, we will post here a transcript of the ‘tweets’ copied from the club’s Twitter account (@TheCohibaClub).

herf-53_032Attendance:  Fernand, Robert, Joe, John L., Patrick (in AZ), Bruce, Jim, and John S.

FR Note:  We recognize that the below layout is a little unorganized and possibly even incoherent.  Please bear with us as we draft our approach for how to get our tweets to flow better at upcoming herfs.  Thanks for reading and thanks for your understanding.

Twitter Transcript:

Scoring the Torano Master Series Robusto...
Category 1, Appearance & Construction:  12 points out of 15 available (80%).

Got some nice long ashes going here.
Category 3, Smoking Characteristics:  22 points out of 25 (88%).

Everyone is very pleased so far. Good smoke production, nice draw, mild sweetness.

Lit Cigar Lounge ‏ (@litcigar):  @TheCohibaClubLove the live tweets of your herf!  At Lit we're big fans of the @ToranoFamCigars Master too.”
Thanks @litcigar this is a trial for our new live blogging format.

Retrohale by club co-founder Robert gave him impressions of bread or toast.

Category 2, Flavor:  22 points out of 25 (88%).

Several of the guys in tonight's tasting group are admittedly surprised at how short their nubs are getting.
Category 4, Overall:  31 points out of 35 (89%).

The Cohiba Club’s Official Rating for the Torano Master Series Robusto is 89.  An excellent cigar.

See you at the next herf, June 3rd.
