Ave Maria Argentum

Would anyone care to post a review about the new Ave Maria Argentum? After being left less than impressed with a few Ave Marias, mainly the Lionheart, Ark of the Covenant, Knights Templar, and St. George, I have a hard time pulling the trigger on anything Ave Maria now.
How do make this text turn upside down?

    I don't have the palate to do reviews, I either like or dislike. The 1 I've smoked was pretty good, not sure I would pay full price for a box but plan on picking them up on the daily deal. They well worth $24.99 for a 5er in my opinion.

    BTW the 5pack is on sale for $24.99

    I have a few. Only smoked one and it was pretty darn good.  I like most Ave Maria stuff though as AJ is the man behind the brand.

    Just to be a voice of dissonance, I got a box anticipating great things and was sorely disappointed with the first one. I'm letting them sit a while before I try again. At this point I wouldn't buy again. Oh well one man's Opus is another man's Swisher...

    IMHO anything aj makes needs a year plus to smoke and truly get a sense of what it is. Others may argue with that but well that's what I think. Yes the new world is a solid stick for rott but what time does to many smokes is nothing but great

    I am a big fan of Ave Maria... but the Argentum is a tad on the coffee side on the wrapper for me. Real good cigar if you like that espresso. Odd thing, I drink espresso most every morning, half and half with half and half... but I just don't care for it in a cigar wrapper. Get enough cofee just from the Ave filler. Immaculata is a bit weak. Love the Crusader. Rich, smooth, cofee, leather, spice, balanced just right for my taste. That's my fave. Reconquista is too big for me to even try.

    The Argentum is my favorite Ave, though to be honest I haven't tried the Divina yet. It is a great Med-Full bodied smoke. You can't go wrong, at least I haven't with these thus far.

    I've had the original Reconquista and the normal line both of which I've very much enjoyed but haven't tried the others. The OR Reconquista is still of the best full bodied ligero bombs out there for my palate and in the normal line the short double preferido size that reminds me of Flying Pig size (think they call it St. George maybe?) is my fav, think it's a great represntation as a Vitola for the blend.

    I've only had one Ave Maria and it was good but nothing I'd track down or buy boxes of. They are solid smokes for the money though so I can see why people go for them so much

    I've always been pretty happy with all things Ave Maria, that said, I do tend to wait for sales.
