The flavor department is where the Arganese Uno Puro seems to perplex me. It just seems as if it fails to deliver. The first third of the cigar kicks off in unimpressive fashion, as the taste is harsh and bitter. This is not the way I want my cigars to start off. A bit further into the first third the bitterness dissipates and gives way to some cedar and pepper. The second third has the pepper continue, but with more pronounced strength. Some wood notes also appear here. The final third caps things off with more wood, as well as some earth. The medium to full-bodied description seems to be correct, as the cigar never really gets to be a full-on powerhouse.

For some reason, the Arganese Uno Puro disappointed me. I guess its good looks and label as being a premium stick had my hopes up. The construction was solid and the burn was on the mark, but the overall flavor failed to capture my attention throughout the cigar. It just did not seem to provide a lot of variety or complexity, and it did not keep me yearning for more. Price-wise, the Uno Puro sells for around $15 each, depending where you shop. It does come in boxes of five, with each cigar individually packed in its own special coffin. Still, while that's nice presentation, I expect more out of a cigar at that price point. Fans of Dominican puros or cigars with big ring gauges may want to try this one out for a special occasion, otherwise, there are many more options out there that won't put such a dent in your wallet.

The Arganese Uno Puro earns a rating of three out of four stars.

Felipe Gregorio Power Special Robusto

The Felipe Gregorio Power is another premium cigar that has been recognized as being excellent by various critics. Its name alone could scare many off, especially if they love milder sticks. Not me, however, so I am going to see if this is one stogie that has what it takes to knock me off my feet.

For this review, I will be giving the Special Robusto vitola a try. It measures 5 1/2 x 46. Felipe Gregorio offers the Power in six other sizes: the 4 1/2 x 50 Petit Torpedo, 5 1/2 x 55 Leopard, 5 1/2 x 55 Triple R, 6 x 60 Obus, 6 1/3 x 54 #2 Torpedo, and 7 1/2 x 50 Double C. The cigar's filler consists of a blend of Nicaraguan and Piloto Cubano tobaccos that have been triple fermented and aged for 12 years. A Nicaraguan Habana 92 binder coats the special filler, and a Costa Rican Pelo de Oro wrapper completes the composition. As you can guess from the cigar's name, the Power is supposed to be strong, and is listed as being full-bodied.
