    Hmmm. I smoked a couple of these a few years ago when I bought some "Cigar of the Year" type packages. This was in contention as one of the best new releases.. I don't know what happened since then, but I thought it was a decent stick that I never got around to re-visiting. Thanks for updating on this one.

    I've had several of these and found them very enjoyable. If yours was bitter tasting you might need to let them rest A while. This should mellow it somewhat.

    And whats the deal with these being a buck a stick cigar. I think that when I first saw them they were more like 7-8 bucks. I wouldn't buy any cigar at a dollar because a price that low says " Crap" in my opinion.

    I let all my submissions rest at least several weeks. If they need more than that they should not have been sold, so it's a manufacturer's issue and a valid concerns so far as the review goes. Someone picking one up in a shop is there to smoke it, not stash it away. The brand has had several blends and the more expensive ones I believe are different and no longer made.

    Thanks for the reviews, Just letting you know my thoughts. I smoked a arganese maduro that I picked up in a sampler. I probably let it rest 3-5 days if that. I was suprised by this cigar as I wasnt expecting much from it but I thought it was a fairly good cigar, actually it prompted me to pick up a couple arganese connies. I felt the maduro burned well, with a good draw, ample smoke and a pretty decent flavor, while it wasnt anything dynamic or exciting I wouldn't have any hesitation in trying another. I only have smoked the one. Perhaps the blend or production is inconsistent. IDK I'd have to try more.

    Gene Arganese makes several very good premium cigars in addition to their standard lined. If you get the chance to pick up a couple Arganese FDW (First Draw Wrapper), you won't be disappointed. They come in Milan Marble, Santiago Sweet, and Ruby Red...all are great cigars!

    If A cigar is A good smoke and A good deal I see no reason not to try them. I smoke one off the truck and let the rest sit for A while to see how the flavors merge and mellow. The FDW Ruby Red is A cigar everyone should try.

    uH oH-----Im calling you out here too lol. Had a box of these about a year or so ago...thought they were mild and fairly one dimensional---but for the price they would shoot way up in quality conidering. I likeld them enough to buy a box of the Arganese ML-3 which I thought was a damn decent stick, and great when again the price was considered. This is what I love about the hobby btw....same stick, likely a similar batch....but 2 different people and 2 toally different tastes. It either makes cigar smoking great or maddening...either way its a good time.

    This was my first box purchase... I don't know what happened to the brand but a few short years ago it was considered a premium cigar.

    I do agree with this!! Sometimes I think there is a little too much emphasis on aging cigars.. I love to do it, but I dont have any qualms about smoking them either. I also will agree with the arganese maduro becoming a little hot and bitter, but for me it wasnt until the "bitter end" and I was pretty much finished with it anyway, cant smoke em all down to nothing. Although I do make note when I have to breakout my toothpick,lol

    If all cigars tasted the same to everyone we wouldn't need reviews in the first place. I now am looking forward to smoking A ML-3 on your recommendation.

    Same way I feel about Padilla.

    Had a few of the naturals but not the maddies. I didn't like the taste profile on these and find them too mild.
