We recently assessed this cigar on Cigar Coop and provided some background information:
The Black Warrior – Reagan is the house cigar to R&R Cigars in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. R&R Cigars is owned by the father and son team of Randy and Reagan Starner. Reagan, is currently making a name for himself in the cigar industry as he recently was one of the youngest ever to be elected to the IPCPR Board. The Black Warrior pays homage to Chief Tuskaloosa paramount chief of a Mississippian chiefdom in what is now the U.S. state of Alabama. For the Black Warrior, there will be two vitolas and each will carry the name of shop owners Randy and Reagan.
The Reagan provides a mix of roasted coffee, natural tobacco, dark chocolate, and black pepper. Overall, I found the flavors worked in harmony very well together. The end of the cigar is on the spicy side, but not harsh. The flavors are medium to full-bodied, but are full toward the end. The strength is medium to full. Normally, I’m hard on torpedoes when it comes to burn and draw, but the Reagan performed quite well.
Overall one of the better house cigars I’ve had. This is worthy of a box-split.
