I got to the Berger & Argenti booth right as the show was closing. Michael Argenti is back with the Entubar line from a few years ago, along with a new cigar called Cuban Copy.

Unfortunately, the show was closing down and I forgot to grab a pic of the booth, but it was  a wide layout with products in built-in cases. It was also next to the Perdomo booth and right as we started shooting the video, Nick Perdomo, Argenti’s brother-in-law, got on the drums and started playing.

The timing could neither have been better, nor worse.

Berger & Argenti Entubar

The Entubar is back. I haven’t smoked it, but I liked the original a lot. It’s not the same blend, but the signature tip returns with some updated branding.

Cuban Copy

Perhaps more interesting. It’s an ode to what Argenti believes are the 12 best Cuban cigars of all time. They are packaged in boxes, unlike say JR Alternatives, and a bit more pricey. I’m super interested to see how these are received given we probably aren’t getting legal Cuban cigars anytime soon. Perhaps more importantly, they are in boxes, which means that brick and mortar retailers might be more interested in bringing them in.
