Crafting the Blackbird Superb was a visionary endeavor led by founder Jonas Santana and his team of expert blenders. Determined to soar above the conventional avian-inspired cigars in their collection, they dedicated extensive time to testing and tasting a myriad of blends. Their relentless pursuit led them to the creation of an extraordinary cigar, so remarkable, so magnificent that it could only be named Superb.
The Blackbird Superb; a medium-bodied premium cigar boasts a delectable Ecuadorian Habano maduro wrapper, elegantly encasing a binder and filler composed of tobacco leaves from an undisclosed origin, carefully guarded to preserve the blend’s mystique. Notably, Superb marks Blackbird’s maiden venture into the realm of cigars adorned with such an exquisite wrapper.
In a revelation captured in a press release, the company disclosed the challenges faced while blending the Blackbird Superb: “We started blending with that wrapper and the challenge began… We did too many blends, mixed with too many tobaccos in the filler that, honestly, it was exhausting. But one day, after several tests, a burned-out palate, at 3 a.m. in the morning we decided to try the last blend… suddenly the room went silent… we all realized that THIS blend felt like we had just arrived in Paradise!”
Handcrafted with precision, these exceptional cigars are meticulously produced in the Blackbird Cigar Dominicana Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic, a facility owned and operated by Jonas Santana himself. The Blackbird Superb epitomizes a harmonious blend of craftsmanship, innovation, and an unwavering commitment to delivering a truly exceptional smoking experience.
