Arganese Cigars

transplanttransplant Evergreen Park, ILPosts: 109 ✭✭✭
As a preface, my experience with cigars is similar to my experience with movies...I like almost all of them, but definitely like some more than others.  Net, I'm an "easy grader."

I bought an assortment of these in December and started smoking them this month.  Paid about $1.50 per, so I didn't expect any of these to change my life.

The Connecticut is a nice dog-walking/grass-cutting/golfing cigar.  Mild and creamy with plenty of smoke. I'll buy these again.

The Maduro is a nice medium smoke.  Slight notes of sweetness, coffee and cacao (or at least that's what I got).  These will also get another try.

I was mostly unimpressed by the habano (and I generally like habanos).  More harshness than spice.  Probably won't buy again.

I only bought one of the CL3s (bought 5 each of the others).  Just finished it.  Tight draw and even when I managed to open it up a bit, the flavor profile was kinda meh.  It's supposed to be Arganese's "boldest blend," but still meh.  Sorry, but this one goes on my short list of crap cigars.
Kipling was a wise man.

    I tried some of the Arganese a few years ago and was pretty much underwhelmed so I never bothered with 'em again. But the important part is how you perceive them. Everyone's taste is his own and if you like 'me that's what counts. 

    Way too many good cigars out there to spend my time with under-performers IMHO....  B)

    That should read 'if you like 'em'....

    I've got some CL3's laying around that I found for dirt cheap. I'd agree completely with your statement here. They would make a perfect mooch cigar or something to smoke when you want a cigar, but you know you don't really have time for one.
