This cigar is an exclusive to Privada Cigar Club. The folks at Black Bird Cigar Co. had an aged cigar at their factory that they had been smoking for personal consumption because they couldn't sell the blend with their branding on it due to FDA regulations. They reached out to Privada, who fell in love with the blend. It has a rare combination of Brazilian wrapper and Brazilian binder. Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. Aged 2.5 years in the Dominican republic. They named it The Rio. The color, the Christ the Redeemer statue, and the font. DOPE. Collectible. Rare. Exclusive. Aged. Sounds perfect for Privada!
Four reviewers have been drafted, and there is room for one more volunteer. Volunteers should be Veteran status or higher. This review will be due by February 25, so please take into account your schedule and only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Todd will make the final selection.
Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.
Thanks again to tuck0411 for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.
Thanks to all the reviewers and I've left feedback. Have to admit I have not smoked the stick in question, at least in this particular vitola, but I really enjoyed the robusto, so was hopeful the toro would be a good pick. Glad to see it was for most of you, sort of... I have one of these waiting for it's turn in the queue, so looking forward to seeing if it matches my experience with the robusto.
