Berger & Argenti Entubar V32 "Khilla Korona" Review

Berger & Argenti Entubar V32 "Khilla Korona" - 4 7/8 X 50. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Maduro (Jalapa Valley), Binder - Nicaraguan (Esteli, Condega, Jalapa & Jinotega), Filler - Nicaraguan (Esteli, Condega, Jalapa & Jinotega). Medium - Full bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Pepper and cedar.

First third - Peppery spice followed by a rich Earthiness with notes of citrus and fruit.

Second third - Now this cigar really begins to settle down and smooth out - Pepper spice up front and now a sweet caramel emerges right along with the Earthiness. Fruit-like notes were also detected.

Last third - Pepper spice, Caramel, Earth and fruity notes continue. Long wonderful finish of Pepper and Earth,

Construction - Attractive, dark-brown wrapper with a nice silky sheen and a somewhat bumpy texture. No soft spots or any major veins.

Burn - A very nice, sharp burn with a salt & pepper colored ash that was solid and held on before being tapped off.

Draw - Perfect draw and just the correct amount of smoke produced with it.

A fantastic cigar from Berger & Argenti - my favorite line from them by far. After the first third, the cigar really allowed you taste all of the complex flavors more distinctly and with better balance. Loved the sweet caramel flavor and the pepper spice. MSRP is $10.99 for this size which is a bit on the pricey side but well worth the money. Only 80,000 cigars were produced on a limited run. The line comes in 4 unique sizes:

"Khilla Korona" - 4 7/8 X 50
"Rogue Rothschild" - 5 5/8 X 54
"Tremendo Toro" - 6 1/4 X 56
"Bruto Belicoso" - 6 3/8 X 60

A definite recommend!
