I recommend using TR much like I would recommend using this forum (well, for tobacco reviews purposes, as this board/forum allows for conversations)... - Use it as a resource to answer questions you have about a tobacco (does it contain Latakia, for example... if you don't like Latakia then no matter how many stars the toby has you likely won't like it). - Find a reviewer who seems to like some of the things you also like... look up blends you KNOW you like, read the reviews and see if any particular folks who have posted reviews made comments similar to your thoughts on that toby. Then "follow" them in their reviews to see what they suggest. If your taste are similar, you will likely find what they highly rate worthwhile. - Discount the people who claim to know a lot about everything. Even on this forum, I've found the most "knowledgeable" people to be very humble. They educate without ever getting snippy, braggy, or condescending. Makes me want to chat with them and learn more. Spend some time here (and on TR)... you'll eventually learn who has been around awhile and who really knows their stuff. They are eager to share their knowledge (which, frankly, I've found to be downright encyclopedic from a few!. I'm still a relative newbie on this board (only a few months or so at this point), but that's my two cents worth... Best regards, and enjoy!
