Uh, @TexaSmoke, you've been here barely more than a year and IIRC new to cigars at that time. Please explain to me how it is you "forgot" about this 5 y/o thread, not to mention professing to speak for "everyone"? I'm afraid @Dran hit the nail on the head with this one!

For those of you who actually ARE interested in expanding your cigar knowledge note the mention of Berger & Argenti in the thread. Their eponymous Entubar series indeed featured something akin to a cigar within a cigar to emphasize the construction method know as "entubar" wherein smaller "tubes" of tobacco are combined to produce the final cigar. When the original B&A Entubars came out in 2009/2010 they made quite an impact. I think I still have one or two tucked away somewhere. But alas, their star that burned so brightly burned out just as quickly. Good cigar, though.

But, good news. The Entubars reemerged just a couple of years ago, albeit in a new blend with new bands.

Jack,

I'm assuming you've smoke one (or more) before after you indicated possession. Do you recall the experience? What were they like?

I'm really intrigued at the concept, but then again I love "outside the box" anythings.

Anyone else here experience these?

Yeah, I smoked a bunch of them. The originals were terrific, especially the Ecuador wrappers. Smooth and rounded profile akin to Padron 1926. The maduros were not as much in my wheelhouse, but few maduros have been since I oversampled back in the 90's and sort of lost my taste for them. YMMV

I have not tried one of the newer ones... but I will at some point.

The added "fun factor" is that you're supposed to just light the little "fuse" sticking out and then let nature take it's course. I can't say it always worked perfectly, but I don't shy away from making corrections when needed - so no problemo. And the entubar construction provides a great reliable draw, among the best IMO. Those two factors alone make the re-release worth trying.

Humm think Iíll just light a skinny one and a fat one and alternate puffs, should work just fine!
All jokes aside maybe Iíll try one of the Maduros, looks like their readily available.
