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.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
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.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★½
Very easy draw and even burn, the ample smoke was slightly grayish and not dry at all.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★½
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 : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
This is the stick I liked the most out of the Maduro line (other reviews are coming up). It really came close to perfection.

  1. I thought the Robusto was pretty good. I may have to check out the local shop that carries them and see if I can get ahold of some of the PC’s.

    I just tried one of these – not bad.

  3. Arganese says:

    These cigars are full of flavor and pack a punch if you’re smoking a maduro. The doublewrap is a pretty cigar, but I found it to be pretty mild. I also noticed the powerful spice flavors that are becoming more and more common with the Dominican cigars. Overall – great smokes.

  4. I liked this size and blend a little better but still not my cup of tea!

  5. I liked the maduro better than the connecticut or the cameroon, but it wasn’t really that special to me. Just another maduro.

    Fabulous smoke. Good time.
