This industry has some magicians, some wizards, and some warlocks. Santana of D’Crossier is a wizard. Born in Cuba and thoroughly in tune with the motherland, Santana has a knack for making the cigars the cigar makers love most. Ask anyone in South Florida who blends cigars, and they will tell you Santana made the best cigars until a few years ago when he went underground. The man only talks tobacco. He knows each manufacturer’s fermenting process, blending process, growing process, and as importantly their aging process. He’s intense. He dreams of returning to a freed Cuba someday and continuing in the tobacco business as if nothing had happened. I sure hope that dream comes true. He can get any type of tobacco as well. ANY. So here we have a testament to what he is capable of in the Dominican Republic. This man creates. He does not market. He blends, he creates the art, and that is it. The cigars will sell themselves if they are good enough. That is his take on it. Most of the time, it works. Other times there are issues. Relationships may sever. Cigars may sit in factories. But at some point, they have to go. These are some fine Dominican cigars aged professionally in cedar. This will be a great education on how cedar affects a cigar. You will taste the actual wood in this cigar. Not hints of it, or something that reminds you of cedar, but actual cedar. And from here on out you will know it when you taste it and you will know if you like it or not. This is all part of the Privada journey. If you enjoy this cigar, tag us on social media and I’ll show him. If you don’t enjoy it, keep it to yourself because if he sees a complaint he’s liable to never call me again…and we need more from this man!!

    So damn good. This came across like a more traditional old world smoke. Cedar and hay were the dominant notes I got. Great construction and long smoke time. I’m thinking about ordering more but also have so many other things to try. I will be back for more.
