Argyle Robusto Cigar Review

Argyle Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a tan wrapper with a firm even pack, dry very finely toothed texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and soft wood aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke showing flavors of a thick, soft wood and earth with a full finish of the same. The first third burns very well and slowly, shifting the body flavors to earth and bread with an oily smooth finish of the same. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes the flavor profile is consistent, the ash drops off in a solid chunk and construction is flawless. Ending just before the hour mark, it did require a complete relight at the band point, staying consistent overall to the nub. Thank you very much to viewer Mack Raza for sending this one in!

    May just give this a try for that price.

    Nice review on a cheap stick and I have to say the view is more real.

    I am a fan of these cheap stick reviews. Haven’t heard of Argyle but looks like something I would try.

  • pittjitsu

    They are a brand made for Holt’s Cigar Company. They have several wrapper choices to choose from. http://www.holts.com/category.html?id=198772

    I always see these advertised from Holts. The dark corojo looks tempting but I haven’t pulled the trigger on them (yet).

    Good yard stick.

  • Texvet

    Would this stick prompt a public flogging if sent in for the lottery?

      It’s an intentionally cheap bargain stick – not appropriate for the lottery. Yes I know there have been one or two in past lotteries. Oh well, I’m not a cigar encyclopedia, I can’t catch everything.

    Great review! Good to see the occasional budget cigar review since I’m certainly on a budget!

    I like how these look for some reason. Might have to give one a try since they are so cheap.

  • rgorman

    Just bought a box of these and can’t wait to try them after seeing this review!

  • Craig

    I always like to hear about a “lesser priced” cigar of good quality.

  • BCamara

    I’ve never heard of these before. If I come across them I’ll be sure to pick them up. It can’t hurt trying a bargain stick. The worse that can happen is I’m out a couple bucks and a bad taste in my mouth that mouth wash can fix… and before someone jumps on it…

    That’s what she said lol.

    Never heard of it. Pass

    I agree that there is a time and place for cheap sticks, but not in my life. Cigars are too much of a treat for me to risk smoking a “yard stick.”

      I don’t know what happened here, I got a duplicate comment warning and then removed a line to see if it was the wording and it posted it twice. ??

  • Dirk

    I had one in a sample.. I would say it was similar to the Vegas 5 in several ways.. a bit more complex..

  • MorganGeo

    Always good to find a good cheapie that you can beat around and not feel bad about it during yard work or playing golf.

  • rockjock

    Hey, if you can get them for a buck on sale and you get 30-45 minutes of decent smoke before they go out then seems decent to me.

  • smokethis

    Not for me. Thanks for review.

  • eric.hanson

    Under $2 with decent flavors, I might have to give these a try. Just goes to show you how sometimes you can’t tell anything about a cigar from price. Thanks for the review Bryan.

  • MaxDuo

    Sounds like I should look for a few of these to pad my humidor so I’m not always smoking only then expensive sticks!

    Edit: And I say this because it doesn’t sound bad. It doesn’t sound spectacular… but how would you get that for $2? And if I don’t like it….. I’d not be losing that much cash.
