Certified Cigar Reviews: Beta-Testing

After more than a decade in development (#operationgoldenmonkey), we are announcing our most revolutionary program ever: Certified Cigar Reviews (CCR).  We present you with the world's first cigar review platform made for you - fully integrated/hyperlinked with our academic curriculum, and searchable, readable, shareable (e.g. social media), and printable (e.g. shelf talkers & spec sheets) by anyone and everyone.  


The CCR homepage displays snapshots of reviews done by CRT: just click on the pic and you will see the full review.  Each Certified Cigar Review is organized by Cigar Specs, Component Data, Pre-Smoke, Smoke and Post-Smoke.  Reviews include objective and subjective criteria like 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 web page which can be shared, printed and/or saved by anyone in the world.  Additionally, pairing and tasting notes can be included with every review.  Reviews are searchable by a nearly infinite array of variables, including brands, vitola, country of origin, wrapper, year of creation, CRT Reviewer, most recent, highest rating, etc...

But this is just the beginning.  We are just scratching the surface of the potential and value that Certified Cigar Reviews will provide!  Ultimately, the Certified Cigar Reviews platform will be available to all lovers of luxury tobacco.  In that process we will empower individuals to create comprehensive reviews for themselves and to share with the world.  

We are inviting our Certified Retail Tobacconists (CRT) to sign up and prepare to help us test the new platform before we open it to the public.  
To our CRT, this is an invitation to participate in the creation of the world's first, most revolutionary and substantive cigar review system ever.  If you are interested in lending your expertise and continuing to be a pioneer in the luxury tobacco industry, visit our new website and sign up to be a Certified Cigar Reviewer.  

CRT should sign up now!  We will be putting together our team during September and testing during the Fall with the intent to open the full site to the public before winter.  Sign up on the Certified Cigar Review website now!
