This Entubar cigar takes the V32 name because the center tube is thicker than the other lines (32 ring gauge to be specific). Essentially, it’s a small cigar of ligero in the middle of a larger cigar. The Nicaraguan puro features a Jalapa Valley wrapper around binder and filler tobaccos from the Estelí, Condega, Jalapa, and Jinotega regions.
The result is a full-bodied, balanced cigar with tons of chocolate and earth. The flavor is like a really good cup of hot chocolate (not that instant junk). With saltiness and wood notes that emerge towards the second half of the cigar, it is a very savory smoke.
Despite the high price, I found this to be a very impressive cigar. Savory, flavorful, and balanced, the V32 will appeal to almost all cigar smokers and is a must-try for maduro fans.

“The initial puffs produced a healthy amount of smoke coated my entire pallet with spice, wood and a hint of cream in the background. For such a mellow looking cigar, the flavors were much more pronounced. The sun grown wrapper and Nicaraguan filler and binder all worked well in combination, giving the cigar much more depth of flavor and complexity.”Details
I must say, the Mooch Loll is has one of the most interesting presentations I have seen. The bottom third of the cigar comes wrapped in a small replica newspaper that talks about the old Kennedy embargo on Cuban imports. If you like cigar memorabilia, the mini-paper is a keeper. Just above it is a small brown band that displays the Mooch label. A final decorative piece comes in the form of a band near the head with the Berger & Argenti name. Once you get past all the pieces of aesthetic flair, you have yourself a solid looking stick.
The Mooch Loll lights easily and has a great draw. It also produces plenty of smoke and some attractive white ash that refrains from falling all over my lap. The burn is even and requires zero touch-ups or re-lights.Details
CigarSmokers.com review of the Berger & Argenti Entubar “Very woody and sweet; with thick creamy smoke. On par with the creaminess of an Opus X, I’d say.”Details

The word ‘Schnorr’ comes from an old Yiddish term which means: ‘One who habitually takes advantage of the generosity of others; a parasite.’ In other words a Mooch!
Tikibar Online review of the ‘Bruto Belicoso’ V-32 from Berger & Argenti Premium Cigars
“[T]he initial flavor was a powerful anise along with notes of dark roast coffee. There was a low level pepper burn on the back of my tongue and the retrohale was a mixture of cocoa powder and cayenne pepper. One thing is for sure: this cigar opens up full bodied right from the start; flavorful, but definitely full.”Details
Life Less Common’s simple review of the Berger & Argenti MoochDetails
“When I finally lit this cigar and took the first draw my palate was filled with a very sweet and gentle creamy taste as well as slight hints of coffee. There is also slight spicy undertones but they aren’t overpowering. The smoke that this cigar gives off is also very mild and does not leave much of a smell on your clothing.
The entire cigar was very good. The first third of the cigar is fairly mild and then it seamlessly reaches a medium bodied strength by the final third of the cigar. This cigar is perfect as a golf cigar or a poker cigar since it is mild enough to not disturb those around you, but still possesses great and complex taste.
I would HIGHLY recommend this cigar for anyone who wants a mild everyday cigar. And I do mean everyday. It is affordable enough that you could smoke one of these on a regular basis.”Details
