Review - Arganese Presidenté Cameroon Robusto - 85/100
The Cameroon wrapped Presidenté blend of the Arganese family has many similarities as well as many differences compared to the Maduro Chairman. The Robusto size is more to my taste than corona, although there is not anything wrong in the corona.
The Presidenté blend is stronger and more spicy than the Chairman, and the cameroon wrapper is not even close to the same sweetness of maduro leaves. This makes the Cameroon Presidenté a more intense smoke. There is no hints of vanilla or burnt sugar as in the Chairman. To replace that, the Presidenté is peppery and spicy with a hint of dark roasted cofee in it.
The coplexity of this cigar makes it less an everyday smoke compared to the Chairman, but offers a variety of flavor that require more concentration. All the qualities are similar to the Maduro Chairman, smooth wrapper, nice even color, no veins, even burn and perfect draw. I have to rank this cigar high. You'll know why when you try.
Origin: Dominican Republic
Aroma 7/10 (7,8,7)
TOTAL POINTS 85/100
