Berger & Argenti Launching Cuban Copy

Null

It’s called Cuban Copy and it’s exactly what it sounds like.

Berger & Argenti is launching a new line of cigars created specifically to mimic the taste of iconic Cuban cigars. The Cuban Copy cigars are substantially less expensive than their Habanos S.A. counterparts and of course, legal in the United States.

Of note, the bottom of the sales sheet has this disclaimer:

PUNCHTM, COHIBATM, BOLIVARTM HOYO de MONTERREYTM and PARTAGASTM are trademarks of Habanos SA and General Cigar Cigar Company; ROMEO y JULIETATM, H. UPMANNTM and MONTECRISTOTM are trademarks of Habanos SA and Altadis USA and are in no manner affiliated with CUBAN COPYTM or BERGER & ARGENTITM.

Blend information has not been disclosed beyond stating the cigars use Cuban-seed tobaccos.

This is not the first time this concept has been done, as Santa Clara, Inc., the parent company of JR Cigar, has a similar concept called JR Alternatives. One major difference between the two is that Cuban Copy cigars are being sold in boxes, whereas JR Alternatives are sold in bundles.
