Berger & Argenti Premium Cigars today announced Entubar V32 will make its long awaited debut at the 79th Annual IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada next month, stated spokesman Al Argenti.
Entubar V32 is Berger & Argenti's own highly limited production run, much as other companies introduce at this time of year. Like all cigars in the Entubar line, this one prominently features a unique half-inch (32/64”) diameter channel of ligero positioned in the center of the cigar barrel extending 3/8” beyond the trimmed foot. Utilizing a bold new blend, Entubar V32 is a Nicaraguan ‘puro’ uniting aged filler and binder tobaccos from four discrete locales, namely the Estelí, Condega, Jalapa and Jinotega growing regions – and enveloped in a prime Jalapa Valley Cuban-seed Maduro wrapper. Entubar V32 will be packaged in dark cedar boxes of 20 cigars and available in four (4) unique sizes: Khilla Korona (4 7/8” x 50); Rogue Rothschild (5 5/8” x 54); Tremendo Toro (6 1/4” x 56) and Bruto Belicoso (6 3/8” x 60).
“Entubar V32 is the most difficult and explosive cigar I’ve ever produced, but I’ve done so without compromising the brand’s balance or complexity,” said Michael Argenti, president of Berger & Argenti. “I was only able to produce 80,000 cigars on a limited run, not only because it is very challenging to make, but also due to the scarcity of top quality materials we’ve used to produce this exceptional cigar.”
Entubar V32is the latest B & A brand extension to pay tribute to the time-honored Cuban cigar making technique known as ‘entubado’ while also establishing a revolutionary new process of manufacturing premium cigars. Each Nicaraguan filler leaf that comprises all Entubar cigars is carefully rolled creating delicate ‘scrolls’ of "rich, flavorful tobacco" states the Argentis.
This age-old method ensures open chambers of air flow from the foot to the head of the cigar. The ligero tobacco, which lends the cigar its unique full body, are bunched independently and then placed into the center of the remaining ‘entubado’ rolled filler blend. This ‘channel’ of ligero tobacco ranges the full length of the cigar and extends 3/8” beyond the finished trimmed foot, creating a startlingly unique ‘fuse like’ appearance that assures a superior draw, flawless conical burn with a long white ash, and a myriad of complex flavors channeled directly onto the palate.
