bergmooch1 Today we have a pair of reviews that should attract beginners and experienced smokers alike. Up first is the smooth, medium-bodied Mooch from Berger & Argenti. Completing the reviews is a closer look at the spicy, full-bodied 7th Capa Especial from Tatuaje.

Berger & Argenti Mooch Loll

Berger & Argenti is a brand with a short history that was founded back in 2009. The company prides itself on producing premium cigars such as the Entubar and Entubar Quad Maduro. The Mooch line is a newer Berger & Argenti release that is said to offer premium quality at an affordable price, making it a solid choice as an everyday smoke. The cigar carries the tagline of “Begging has never been more dignified,” so I’m guessing that this is one stick that is good to have around when mooching friends come over. If that is the reasoning behind the name, I have to give the marketing department some points for creativity.


The Berger & Argenti Mooch Loll is a Torpedo that measures 6 x 52. The cigar also comes in the following sizes: the 4 ¾ x 42 Minnie, 5 x 50 Schnorr, and 7 x 49 Windbag. The cigar’s filler consists of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobacco grown in the nation’s fertile region of Esteli. A Nicaraguan Jalapa binder comes next, and an Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper completes the composition. The Mooch is a milder cigar that’s listed as being medium-bodied in strength.


I must say, the Mooch Loll is has one of the most interesting presentations I have seen. The bottom third of the cigar comes wrapped in a small replica newspaper that talks about the old Kennedy embargo on Cuban imports. If you like cigar memorabilia, the mini-paper is a keeper. Just above it is a small brown band that displays the Mooch label. A final decorative piece comes in the form of a band near the head with the Berger & Argenti name. Once you get past all the pieces of aesthetic flair, you have yourself a solid looking stick. The golden brown wrapper is a tad dry and has a few green spots that are visible. There’s very little veining going on. The cigar feels firm to the touch, but a little lumpy in some areas. Mildness comes through in the sweet pre-light aroma, while the cold taste is of tobacco.


The Mooch Loll lights easily and has a great draw. It also produces plenty of smoke and some attractive white ash that refrains from falling all over my lap. The burn is even and requires zero touch-ups or re-lights.
