Taste College: Certified Cigar Reviews

 
After decades in development, TU launched the Certified Cigar Reviews (CCR) website in 2019: it is the world’s first and only interactive platform for creating cigar reviews. The CCR gives professionals and consumers a platform and methodology to 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 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.

The CCR homepage displays snapshots of reviews done by Certified Retail Tobacconists (CRT): just click on the image to see the full review. In addition, CCR users can search for cigars by an almost infinite array of variables including brands, country of origin, wrapper, size, Date of Creation (DOC), CRT Reviewer, flavor descriptors, pairing recommendations, strength, spice, body, etc...

Certified Cigar Reviews aggregates reviews from the most knowledgeable people in the world and harnesses the data to help educate and inform everyone. In addition, every cigar review can be shared, linked and promoted through all of your social media and internet channels as well as printed in the form of shelf talkers and spec sheets. The shelf talkers are a tool for tobacconists to use in their stores, while the spec sheets are a great way for professionals and consumers to print, organize and bind hard copies of their reviews for easy reference.

While our CCR homepage displays CRT reviews, the website and its functionality is open to everyone. If you use it, you can create your own homepage filled with reviews and visit your friends' pages to see their reviews. We encourage you to take a look and use these resources to expand and enhance your enjoyment of luxury tobacco products.

We strongly suggest you visit CertifiedCigarReviews.com to get the full interactive experience of this review methodology and platform. You will get to see comprehensive reviews from the industry's greatest professionals, Certified Retail Tobacconists. And if you’re dedicated and passionate enough, we welcome you to use the same system to create your own reviews.
