Privada Black & Yellow

This stick is a smooth operator with great flavors and impeccable construction. The wrapper is very appealing, however it lost a few points due to a few dings here and there but overall great looking cigar. The Draw on this stick was nothing short of amazing with just the right amount of snugness. The smoke output was absolutely glorious with thick thick clouds of smoke and great texture to the smoke also, and the Burn also impeccable. Flavors were right up my ally especially with a peanut butter note making a guest appearance in the final third.

I’m a tradesman by day in the boating industry specifically in the body work side of things. I work with my hands every day to build some the finest sport yachts in the industry so I can definitely understand the blood sweat and tears that go into the craft of cigars and that is something I appreciate. The culture, experiences and the friends I’ve made along the way are priceless, and I am so thankful to have this opportunity.
