Can’t clip my wings! That’s the moto of this upstart, boutique cigar company. Blackbird Cigar Co. produces some really interesting sticks using great tobaccos. They also own their own factory in the Dominican Republic where they can control production from raw material to finished product. While the brand is young (it launched in 2019), their debut products created quite a stir in the industry. Each cigar blend they produce is named after a bird or bird related. I know what you’re thinking: Unkind is not a bird. Correct. But, as there was already a Raven cigar in existence, the brand owner chose Unkind as a flock of Ravens is called an unkindness. Pretty creative if you ask us, and their cigar Blackbird Unkind is just as inventive.
The Blackbird Cigar Co. Crow is another outstanding blend from this relatively new cigar company. It’s made in their factory in the Dominican Republic with care using a rich blend of top tier tobaccos. The blend begins with select tobaccos from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania along with Corojo and Criollo 98 tobaccos of undisclosed origin. Next up is a Habano binder, and the blend is topped off with a Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper. It is a bold blend that features notes of cedar, chocolate, and pepper with hints of caramel, earth, and raisins. The blend is complex and flavorful, and another outstanding achievement for this young company.
