Berger & Argenti Release Clasico, Entubar Cigars
Posted: May 18, 2010
Since Michael Argenti of the defunct Cuban Imports Ciar Co. teamed up with cigar veteran Henry "Kiki" Berger last year, their joint venture, Berger & Argenti has brought two cigar brands to the market, one value based and one a curiosity—Clasico and Entubar.
The unorthodox Entubar is so named for the method in which it is made, whereby the filler tobacco is rolled rather than folded into a bunch. The most intriguing part of the cigar, however is its foot.
A small segment of rolled (or entubed) tobacco on the Entubar cigar protrudes about 3/8 of an inch from the cigar's foot to accentuate the method. Entubar comes in four sizes (Robusto, Double Corona, Torpedo and Gran Toro) and retails for $8.99 to $11.99.
For a more traditional and wallet friendly cigar, the Clasico is also made with a combination of Nicaraguan tobacco and the same Ecuadoran wrapper.
Retailing in the $4.50 to $7.50 range, the line comes in four sizes: Corona Gorda, Rothschild, Belicoso and Churchill. Both brands are made at Tabacalera Estelí in Nicaragua.
