Entubar Cigars are one of a kind. Not only from their appearance, but in the way the cigar is actually rolled. The name Entubar is actually a tribute to the way Cubans used to make their cigars. Rather than the traditional method called booking, which is when the filler is folded, Entubar Cigars are made by rolling the filler. In the rolling of these cigars, the ligero, the filler, is bunched by itself and then added to the rest of the bunch. The ligero extends the entire length of the cigar with an additional extension of ¼ inch out from the foot. The technique gives it a fuse like appearance. This is done so that it creates more of a draw and burn by allowing more air to flow from the foot to the head of the cigar.
The Entubar Cigars were introduced by Berger and Argenti Cigars. The company began in 2009 and these were the first cigars they released. Berger and Argenti Cigars is owned by brothers, Albert and Michael Argenti and Enrique Berger. Mr. Berger comes from a long line of tobacconists and is known for his premium cigars. Micheal and Albert have an extensive knowledge of cigars with an irrefutable reputation in the cigar world. They have chosen to have their headquarters based out of Miami, but have kept their agricultural and production facilities in Esteli, Nicaragua. They only allow B&M's to exclusively sell their lines. They also only produce in small quantities to ensure that the highest quality and standards are used. They are known for specializing in small batch premium cigars for these reasons.
To learn more about the Entubar Cigars would be to take a look at two of the cigars in this line. One is the Entubar Original and the other newly released Entubar Quad Maduro. They are offered in the following sizes Corona Macho 4 5/8 inch x 48 ring gauge, Double Corona 7 5/8 x 54, Robusto 5 3/8 x 54 and Torpedo 6 7/8 x 56. The Entubar Original is also available in Gran Toro 6 5/8 x 64. You can buy either of these in boxes of twenty.
The Entubar Original has an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that is a darker cocoa brown color. The filler is from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. It is considered a medium to full body cigar. The draw is flawless and the ash holds tight. The ash is medium gray in color and produces a lot of smoke. The overall flavor of this cigar is complex, but it transitions smoothly throughout the entire smoke. It has an earthy tobacco flavor with hints of spice. There are nutty and herbal notes in the background that come and go.
The Entubar Quad Maduro has a box pressed Habano wrapper. It is made of Nicaraguan Cuban-Seed Sun-Grown Maduro leaves. The tobacco leaves were aged in oak barrels for about eight years before they were used. The filler is Nicaraguan and Dominican Republic. This cigar is considered a full body smoke. The draw is perfect and the ash holds together nicely. It is white in color and produces a fair amount of creamy smoke. The flavor is of an earthy tobacco, as with the Entubar Original, with hints of nuts and a sweetness that is hard to pin down to a particular taste. There is no spice that is apparent in this cigar.
The Entubar Cigars are sure to please even the most finicky cigar aficionado. They are complex cigars that keep one guessing, yet it makes it enjoyable. Since these are always made in limited production, they are well worth the price, if you get the chance to get your hands on one.
