Berger & Argenti Clasico Corona Gorda review
This cigar is wrapped with a slightly oily and nice looking Ecuadorian grown, Connecticut seed wrapper with only small visible veins.
It is firmly packed but still light in the hand. I chose to use a cutter and the cold draw is nice and smooth.
It has a very pungent earthy smell and is labeled with a small unassuming band.
Looks, smells and feels good… let’s smoke it!
The first half has a very unique and delicious flavor profile. Mix of black licorice and wood flavor right off the bat. This is surprising from a connecticut seed wrapped cigar. It is medium bodied and just pours out smoke. This is not at all what I expected for the first half of this cigar. I am pleasantly surprised.
Second half mellows out quite a bit in flavor but retains the medium body. Dominated by a bold cedar and cream flavor, the last half of this cigar is exceptionally smooth. Perfectly even burn and produces a lot of smoke. All that smoke means it tends to burn a bit on the hot side, so keep your puffs under control or it could turn bitter on you.
