Popular Post cmbarton Posted April 9, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted April 9, 2019 Last month @Elpresidente posed the question, “Can you list your top 5 Marques in order of preference?” Because I earn a living in statistics, and because I’m a data analytics masochist, I spent a few hours today modeling the data in order to come to a scientific stack ranking that weighted each marque in proportion to the order in which the marque appeared in each Top 5 entry. Interesting storylines in the data are that Cohiba, which received the second-most #1 ratings, was in the 50-percentile of #4 and #5 ratings indicating a “Boom or Bust” affinity among FOH members. Romeo y Juliet wins the “Always a Bridesmaid” award for its top 50-percentile ranking despite not receiving any #1 ratings. Lastly, in @Hotboxx’s initial assessment of the frequency of marque appearance in the Top 5 entries, Ramon Allones appeared in the fourth-most percentage of entries but is the nineth-most popular marque when using a weighted approach; this is because Trinidad, Bolivar, and Montecristo are buoyed by higher ratings in the entries that listed those marques in their Top 5. Here are the results: 1. H. Upmann 2. Partagas 3. Cohiba 4. Trinidad (tie) 4. Bolivar (tie) 6. Montecristo 7. Ramon Allones 8. Hoyo de Monterrey 9. Por Larrañaga 10. Romeo y Julieta 11. Juan Lopez 12. Punch (tie) 12. Quai d’Orsay (tie) 14. San Cristobal de la Habana 15. Vegas Robaina 16. La Gloria Cubana 17. Sancho Panza 18. Saint Luis Rey (tie) 18. Rafael González (tie) 20. Diplomatico 21. El Rey del Mundo 14 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
