Stories like this make the yogurt-seeking bacteria in my colon happy: people are happier with a cheap wine than a spendy one, unless they know which is which, in which case the more expensive bottle with the nice label is better.
I often suspect the reviews of cigars in which the smoker has a calibrated tongue: if you’re telling me, centimeter by centimeter, how a cigar tastes, I no longer trust your reviews. Beyond regularity in construction and customer service, expensive cigars are just that, expensive. I’ve yet to try a $20 stick that I thought was worth 4 $5 sticks; I’m not ready to say tobacco is tobacco, but I suspect that’s the case. George Burns could have purchased any cigar, but he smoked machine rolled cheapies.
