A Complete Guide to Blackbird Cigars

Founded by Dominican-born first-generation cigar maker Jonas Santana, the Blackbird Cigar Co. is dedicated to delivering the benchmark in modern cigar quality.

With a diverse roster of sophisticated premium cigars rolled from tobaccos sourced from the esteemed Jochy Blanco, tobacco grower and CEO of Tabacalera Palma in Santiago, Tamboril, Blackbird has an amazing smoke for every palate – find yours now.

Blackbird Crow

W – Mexico

B – Dominican

F – Nicaragua, USA

Strength: Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

Wrapping a burly Mexican San Andres leaf around a Dominican binder and smooth Nicaraguan tobaccos, the Blackbird Crow cigar harnesses its carefully curated blend into a sophisticated and satisfying synergy. Medium in body, the Crow emits a broad pool of earthy grain, cacao, oak, and spice tasting notes as its complex profile progresses. Factor in its consistently smooth draw and you’ve got a fantastic everyday smoke.

Blackbird Cuco

W – Brazil

B – Indonesia

F – Dominican Republic

Strength: Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

Blackbird’s Cuco presents a rounded smoke highlighted by the earthy-sweet attributes of its Brazilian wrapper leaf. This rich brown wrapper leaf, when combined with its unique combination of Dominican filler leaves, creates a flavorful smoke with an amazing balance of chocolatey and peppery flavors.

Blackbird Finch

W – Sumatra

B – Indonesia

F – USA, Dominican Republic

Strength: Mellow

Origin: Dominican Republic

Want to start your day on a high note? Light up the mellow-bodied Blackbird Finch with a good cup of coffee. Rolled using a slick Sumatra wrapper over select leaves from Indonesia, the USA, and the Dominican Republic, the easygoing and effusive Finch serves up a warm ensemble of espresso, almond, milk chocolate, and white pepper tasting notes.

Blackbird Jackdaw

W – Connecticut

B – Indonesia

F – USA, Dominican Republic

Strength: Mellow

Origin: Dominican Republic

Sweet with gentle pepper and an inviting aroma, Blackbird’s Jackdaw gets its mellow finesse from a careful blend of Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers over select Indonesian, Dominican, and United States tobaccos. The not-so-secret ingredient that really makes this easygoing smoke “pop” is a hefty dose of Corojo ‘99 used in its rounded mix of filler leaves.

Blackbird Nest

W – Ecuador/Mexico

B – Indonesia

F – Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, USA

Strength: Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

In your choice of chocolatey Mexican San Andres or velvety-smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaves, Blackbird’s bundled Nest cigars were designed to deliver a premium-quality smoke at an easily accessible price. A sturdy Sumatra binder and filler leaves from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania fill out both versions of this fantastically flavorful and frugal offering.

Blackbird Rook

W – Indonesia

B – Dominican Republic

F – Nicaragua, Dominican Republic

Strength: Mellow

Origin: Dominican Republic

Creamy with a rich aroma and a natural sweetness, the mellow Blackbird Rook spoils the palate with tones of wood, nuts, and subtle spices. Spinning a lush Sumatra wrapper over a Dominican Habano binder and carefully selected fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, the stealthy Rook leaves the palate feeling clean despite its robust flavor profile.

Blackbird Unkind

W – Brazil

B – Dominican Republic

F – Nicaragua, USA

Strength: Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

Wrapped in brilliant Brazilian Cubra, the Blackbird Unkind is packed with the finest tobacco reserves from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania to create its flush flavor and refined character. Medium in body with a deep tasting profile, the hearty and smooth Unkind is teeming with tasting notes of dark chocolate, espresso, raw sugar cane sweetness, earth, and cream.
