The best option of the brand Argento, a tobacco that can be for day to day at a very economic price.

The mixture is fairly balanced and very well done. The smell once opened is a fermented, overhanging the roasted Cavendish. In the mouth it feels quite roasted and of a moments giving its bitter notes the Latakia next to the smoke, that in spite of being minority within the mixture, helps to give more complexity to the flavors.

I agree with the other reviewers that this is the best of the Argento blends by quite a margin. The aroma when breaking the pouch seal was superb and although mine came moist I had no problem lighting it. Despite not being a great latakia lover I'm glad it's there as it just adds an extra dimension and compliments the other leaf flavours. They are able to shine without being overpowered by the latakia which so often happens among the better known latakia blends.

I crave this blend so much I'm going to give it the high score it deserves.

This is the best option that Argento has to offer. The price of the pouch is cheap (around 70 pesos -3.5 USD-) compared to the imported brands that have prohibitive prices for pipe smokers without much money to spend. When i opened the pouch it released a fermented aroma. The latakia flavor is very faded, and does not become present as one would want (I'm a big fan of english mixtures with a good dose of latakia). This is a complex and tasty mix, ideal to enjoy all day long. It produces little bit of moisture, and burns evenly. Personally, i like this blend and i always have one at hand. The price is fair, and you get what you paid for, neither more nor less.

Esta es la mejor opción que nos da Argento. El precio es barato, mucho más si se compara con los precios de los blends importados que tienden a ser bastante excesivos. El Latakia está presente, pero de una manera "aguada". Es una mezcla con matices interesantes y sabrosos, ideal para disfrutar en el día. Considero que es un buen blend para tener a mano, y de hecho siempre tengo uno. El precio es justo, no espere la complejidad de un blend Dunhill o SG, pero aproveche la oportunidad de probar un tabaco distinto.

Very good blend of burley and criollo with a hint of latakia. Packs well, lights easy. An atypical blend that is worth trying especially being an OTC blend.
