About CCR: Welcome to the world's first and only interactive platform for cigar reviews. The Certified Cigar Reviews website is a revolutionary program where professionals and consumers document and evaluate cigars. Certified Cigar Reviews are organized by Cigar Specs, Component Data, Pre-Smoke, Smoke, and Post-Smoke. Reviewers rate the objective and subjective criteria of a cigar: including aesthetics, construction, flavor (taste+aroma), spice, strength, body, and smoking conditions. Facts, sensations, impressions, and opinions are documented, aggregated, evaluated, processed and displayed on a graphically rich webpage, which can also be shared, printed and/or saved by anyone in the world. Furthermore, all of the review data and criteria are hyperlinked with the Tobacconist University (TU) academic curriculum to enhance the educational experience and establish fundamental definitions and facts: so if you don’t know what "strength", "spice", or "body" means, you just click on the word and learn.


Our homepage displays snapshots of reviews done by Certified Retail Tobacconists (CRT): just click on the snapshot to see the full review. Also, from the homepage, CCR website users can search by an almost infinite array of variables for cigars, including brand, country, wrapper, size, year of creation (yoc), CRT Reviewer, etc...


TU Certified Cigar Reviews is a community of the world’s most substantive premium cigar reviews and reviewers. Every review can be shared, linked and promoted through all of your social media and internet channels. Keep reading to find out how you can be a part of it.

Certified Retail Tobacconists (CRT) can create reviews for free as a benefit of their certification. These are the reviews we focus on displaying and promoting because CRT are proven to be the most knowledgeable and important professionals in the luxury tobacco industry. Every review can be digitally shared and/or printed as a spec sheet and/or as a shelf talker, which also displays the CRT’s credentials and promotes their authorship.
