Berger & Argenti Clasico Belicoso Review
Berger & Argenti Clasico Belicoso - 5.75 X 50. Wrapper - Ecuadorian "Desflorado" Connecticut, Binder - Nicaraguan Corojo, Filler - Nicaraguan. I found this cigar to be a solid Medium bodied cigar with a myriad of complex flavors. Initially you are greeted with a toasty, cedary flavor which quickly turns into a coffee flavor with a raisin-like sweetness with underlying spice and cinnamon. I can see why Al Argenti refers to this cigar as a "Blond maduro" because if I didn't know any better, I would swear that I was smoking a maduro! As I continued to smoke this cigar, a sweet, creamy coffee and cinammon flavor with a tingling spice on the tongue continued and I even had a hint of nuts right before the end - a finger burner! A very complex cigar that had perfect construction, burn and draw. The wrapper is delicate. Pricepoint on this cigar is about $6.00 which makes this a good value. I definitely recommend trying this cigar.
