arganesecrobusto1Hello again! On today's smoking menu we have reviews of the Arganese CL3 Robusto and the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines.

Arganese CL3 Robusto

Up first today is the Arganese CL3 Robusto. Before we hit the cigar itself, let's take a glance at the company behind the stick: Arganese Cigars. Arganese Cigars was founded by Gene Arganese. He wanted to have his own blend of cigars for personal use, so he produced some on a small scale and distributed them as gifts to friends and family. Due to the rave reviews and demand he received from those closest to him, Arganese decided to take his dream one step further. After touring cigar factories in the Dominican Republic to get a first hand look at the process behind cigar manufacturing, he eventually grew his operations from a small factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic to a much larger one in the nation's La Palma Free Trade Zone in early 2007.

Arganese now manages over 110 acres of land specifically used to grow tobacco for his cigars. To ensure quality control, the company only employs staff with significant experience in the industry, which has led to the brand securing its place as a respected name in the cigar world.

The Arganese CL3 is said to be one of the strongest offerings from the manufacturer. This strength comes from the fact that the cigar is loaded with triple the amount of the strong Ligero tobacco that is one would expect to find in other competing premium sticks. This triple strength distinction is reflected in the cigar's short and sweet moniker, as CL3 stands for Corojo Ligero to the third power. Due to its full-bodied profile, the CL3 is aimed more at experienced smokers and those who enjoy cigars with a real kick to them. Not only is the CL3 supposed to knock you off your feet, but it is also does it in a slow manner, since the Ligero tobacco's oily nature gives it more longevity than other smokes.

just because they make 2500/yr doesnt make it an exceptional cigar. It sells for criminal amounts because of its rarity but the cigar itself isn't that great at all. I speak from experience.

My preference is full-bodied cigars so I picked up a 5 pack for cheap in a quick buy auction. Smoked the first one last night and found it very harsh the first half, then is mellowed out some. I found it a bit sour and one dimensional... Maybe some time in the humidor will help these sticks develop some flavors.
