The whole cigar blogosphere seems to be talking about Arganese cigars, now it's our turn to review one of these. Arganese Maduro Presidente Petit Corona turned out to be a well-constructed full-bodied cigar which provides a nice short smoke.
Rather attractive. A few veins are visible, the Maduro wrapper is just a little oily. I liked the band - massive, with nice Medieval-looking fonts.
Upon lighting, I was immediately hit by powerful waves of spice, which I enjoyed. Reminded me of the Montecristo No. 5, it had a similar beginning. In the second third, however, the black pepper scent is less present. Hints of chocolate appear, making the cigar smooth. In the last third, vanilla and chocolate dominate and leave a great impression of the Arganese Maduro Presidente Petit Corona.
I would qualify the price/quality relationship as very good. A petit corona that is definitely worth buying.
Overall Rating :
This is the stick I liked the most out of the Maduro line (other reviews are coming up). It really came close to perfection.
