Berger & Argenti Clasico Belicoso Cigar Review

This 5.75×50 stick offered a tan, textured but firm wrapper, with a nice tobacco aroma. Total burn time was 1:45 just past the band point, and it was almost razor sharp all the way down. The ash was light grey and white, holding on 1 1/2″ at a time. The draw was VERY loose but produced huge amounts of rich smoke with no effort at all. It was very surprising to get that much smoke and flavor for so long with such a free draw! The flavors were very consistent, dominated by a smooth creamy cocoa, medium-full in body. The first two thirds offered a nice pepper and spice zing on the finish, giving way to just a long creamy finish at the end. Thank you very much to Berger & Argenti for donating this sample for review!

    Brian:

    Very nice review. I’ve been contemplating this stick and you have convinced me.
    Just BTW, I have experienced the same phenomenon of loose draw/lots of smoke/cool burn in the Trinidad (D.R) belicoso, which also seems to be rolled like a rock. Maybe something peculiar to the shape? Anyway, thanks.
