Berger & Argenti Mooch Schnorr

From what I've read, this cigar is marketed to cigar enthusiasts who have friends that like to ask for cigars, yet don't really know anything about them.  You know the friends...  They don't know the difference between a Swisher Sweet and a Cohiba Behike.  There's nothing worse than feeling obligated to give a stick to a friend who wants to see what all the fuss is about, yet knowing full well that after 2 or 3 puffs, that $12 cigar will be snuffed out or left to roll off a table.

I start with a punch-cut for my Mooch, followed by a toasting of the foot. 

1/3: First tastes are predominantly of cedar - pleasant.  The ash held on to about an inch, then fell on its own.  It's off to a mild start, yet it is certainly tasty.  I wonder if the quality here is good enough such that this stick could turn into a multiple-mooch scenario....as in, "Hey, that was good!  Can I have another?"  The wrapper on mine did crack a little bit, however it did not affect the smoking experience at all really.

2/3: In this third, my taste buds pick up some pepper and a little bite.

3/3:  The pepper lingers, and the strength has increased slightly. 

Bottom line:  This cigar is better than the name (and it's story) might suggest.  For a mild smoke, it's pretty decent.  Any friend who mooches this Mooch should consider him (or her) self lucky.
