About CCR

The Certified Cigar Reviews website is a revolutionary platform, created by Tobacconist University, 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, 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. For example, if you don’t know what "strength", "spice", or "body" means, you just click on the word and learn.
