arguno21 A couple of highly rated cigars are featured in today's reviews on Puff.com, so sit back, relax, and keep reading to see if the pricy Arganese Uno Puro and the full-bodied Felipe Gregorio Power live up to their expectations.

Arganese Uno Puro

Thick and pure are two words that fit the Arganese Uno Puro well. This stogie packs a large ring gauge and a rather homogeneous blend of tobaccos into a good looking package. The Uno Puro has received high acclaim from some critics, and it's considered to be one of the most premium offerings from Arganese. Enough with the intro, it's time to light one of these up to see if they live up to the hype.

The Arganese Uno Puro line comes in just a 6 x 60 size, so hopefully you love cigars with large ring gauges if you had hopes of giving one of these babies a try. As you can tell from its name, this is a puro, meaning it's made completely of tobacco from one nation. That nation is the Dominican Republic in this case, so you get a filler, binder, and wrapper of all Dominican tobacco. The Uno Puro undergoes an aging process during which it is infused with premium cognac. The cigar's listed strength seems to vary from place to place, but the consensus appears to place it somewhere between medium and full-bodied.

The Arganese Uno Puro is labeled as a premium cigar, and it can definitely say it backs up that label in terms of looks. The thickness of the cigar is a bit intimidating, especially if you are not used to sticks with larger ring gauges. The wrapper has an inviting chocolate brown color with a slight hint of red mixed in. There's a good amount of oil on the surface, and just a few prominent veins are noticeable. Overall, the cigar has a very smooth appearance and appears to have solid construction. There are no soft spots or major imperfections. The silver and black band near the head displays the Uno Puro moniker, and it adds a nice finishing touch. Before lighting, I pickup up a scent of cedar. As far as the cold taste is concerned, I sense a very faint hint of cognac, which it not surprising at all.

Clipping the Uno Puro does take some work due to its thickness, and the same holds true for lighting it. Once lit, however, the results are pretty satisfactory. The draw is just right and some solid light gray ash is produced. The burn does get a tad uneven at times, but nothing that is too hard to correct with the help of the lighter.
