    Arganese Connecticut Chairman is a decent Torpedo. I have smoked cigars that were twice more expensive, yet provided the same satisfaction (for example, Vegas Robaina Unicos).

    Appearance : [rating:4.5/5]
    I pretty much liked the way this Torpedo looked. There were no apparent issues with the wrapper.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    Slightly tight draw, I noticed that this was common to all cigars in the Arganese Torpedo line. It burned slowly and evenly, without totally dying out yet requiring regular puffs.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    This medium-bodied cigar started out hesitantly and it was pretty hard to decipher any particular flavors. After a few minutes, light creamy scents of coffee/vanilla began to appear in crescendo. The second third was mainly leathery and the finish provided me with pleasant cedar notes.

    Value : [rating:3.5/5]
    Not sure if I would actually buy this cigar. Since I’m not really fond of Torpedos, I would rather go for the Arganese petit corona, which was a better smoking experience.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall]
    I think this one was too light for me. However, I must say that the flavors were interesting and the Arganese Connecticut Chairman Torpedo might be a very good cigar to start a day with.

      I have 4 boxes of maduro petit corona from Arganese. I intend to toss them in the trash, they are the worst smokes ever. I got them on sale and was dumb enough to trust their puffery in their ad.

      Good review. The only thing that can really be a drawback for this cigar is a frequent draw problem.

      I have tried a few of their cigars and each one left the impression of mediocre at best. I usually pass them off in trades because they just don’t have enough complexity or taste to be taken seriously. Just being honest here.

      Same here I did not care to much for these–sorry!

      This cigar didn’t really do anything for me. There just wasn’t enough to it to make me want to buy more.

      I agree for the most part. This was an enjoyable smoke, a bit on the light side. I did experience a run on one side in regards to the burn, but it was only once and was likely a fluke. Still, for the price, you would expect quality constantly.
