Berger and Argenti Clasico

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Let’s get the formalities out of the way… I have no idea where I got these cigars. It could have been gifted to me, or maybe I bought it. This cigar is from the same people who make the Exile Wired. Other then that, I have no further details or back story. So I got down to it and paired up with a glass of water. Here are my thoughts on the Berger and Argenti Clasico.


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut

Binder: Nicaraguan Corojo

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Churchill 7 x 50

Price: Around $7.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The chocolate brown wrapper had a nice shine to it, with some ruggedness as well. There were a couple decent sized veins, a small wrinkle here and there, and a little toothiness. The odor of the wrapper reminded me of hay, and the foot had sweet notes. The cigar was pretty evenly packed, only getting a little softer towards the foot. The pre-light draw had some resistance, but fell within my tolerance. Taking a cold draw revealed an earthy sweetness.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for about one inch.

The first third had a simple earthy natural tobacco flavor. When passing smoke through the nose, I could only pick up a very mild sweet spice. After about 2 inches, the smoke feel developed into a sweet creaminess with a mild woody aftertaste.

The second third kept the natural tobacco flavor, but the earthiness went down a notch. Overall there was a creamy sweetness that had notes of caramel. When retro-haling, there was more of a cedary flavor and barely any spice.

The last third didn’t change a lot from the second third. I’d be repeating myself if I described it. Just re-read my notes from the second third.

This was a OK mild to medium bodied cigar. The flavors were good, but I found my attention wandering away from the cigar. It was relaxing, but I guess a little boring in this size. I have a feeling I would like this cigar more in a smaller size.
