Privada is a community. For some, a family. And this cigar right here is a testament to that. The Shit Show Crew is composed of some of our longest standing members. Midwest guys with a love for the leaf. Privada members ’til death, and most importantly GOOD people. This cigar commemorates a night the four main members of the Show Crew spent in New Orleans. Shout out to NOLA and the entire state of Louisiana, you are in our thoughts. I cannot think of a more suitable city to have the kind of night we recall as a SHIT SHOW. We have all had them. Drunk or sober. Those times when things just get crazy. So here is to the Shit Show Crew and all of the members of Privada Cigar Club. May your shit shows be safe and create a whole lot of memories. I’m quite sure you are about to make a cigar memory with this example of maduro perfection that the King of Nicaraguan Tobacco AJ Fernandez has blended especially for us. Another taste of what is to come in 2022!


Tasting Notes: On the body, I get rawhide, saddle leather, peach, and standard barnyard. The foot is vanilla and chocolate. The cold draw is chocolate syrup, black pepper, sweet soy, vegetal, something that reminds me of seaweed flavor. The first puffs reveal black soy sauce, black pepper, molasses, florals, and candied orange. The retro is black pepper, candied fruits, leather, and dried florals. Holy cow! Further down I get chocolate and apricot. Midway I still get chocolate, only now I fully get candied orange and some notes of malt and toast. At this point, the retro is red pepper. Toasted nuts, toasted cereal enter the equation en route to the final third. In the final third, I get reminded of black coffee with a lot of sugar. I also get red pepper on the retro still. When concentrating I taste florals and herbs. Then, something happens. I taste something I have not tasted in quite a while. Sour candy. It’s a hint of sour Sprees. Sweet and sour, red pepper, dark dried cherries, tartness, and florals along with some dried herbs and oak finish out this absolute masterpiece.

Pairing Notes: Black coffee with sugar. Cafecito. Espresso. Coffee candies or coffee ice cream. Whipped cream. Bananas foster or pan-seared ripened bananas. After a Spanish meal of rice and beans. With whiskey of any kind. Candied oranges. Dried fruits. Sweet tea.

    One of the best Maduro cigars I’ve ever smoked!! 🔥

    The 1st third opens with a bite of black pepper and chilli heat at the back of my throat. The draw flavour is a deep black coffee.
    10 minutes in and the spice has died right down. The black coffee notes have transitioned into more of a cream coffee that’s accompanied by a sweetness in the wrapper.

    The 2nd third sees the coffee drop to the background and a bakers chocolate note has come in.

    The final third has an oak note, the black pepper has returned accompanied by woody notes. The finish has become very earthy.

    A really enjoyable smoke.

    Delicious. Perfect burn. Reminds me of something James brown cigars would blend.
    Box worthy
