I have for you today a cigar made by Arganese called Big Pig in the maduro wrapper.

These come in one size, 6×60 and are available from or any of the Smoker Friendly stores around the country. I honestly have no idea where my local store got them from since they are not a Smoker Friendly branded shop.


Taking a look at this Big Pig Maduro and it looks dyed. I mean really dyed. It also feels really wet even after keeping it in my 70% humidor for a week.

Wrapper gives off a chocolate scent and the cold draw was more of a chocolate liquor.

No band on this cigar just the outer wrapper on the 5-pack.

It has the pig tail on the head and it also has a closed foot which I am not a fan of.

Let’s get this thing started.


Starting out the Big Pig Maduro I was met with a bit of chocolate, the bitter kind, wood, natural tobacco and something i am going to call chocolate liquor. It was a liquor taste but I am not versed enough in liquors to narrow it down.

I would say after an inch or so it was a solid medium body.

As I got into the cigar more I was getting a spice through the sinus’ that would really linger a long time.

Wood. Main flavor the whole way through after the initial inch. There was a little bit of the chocolate and liquor but the wood made it’s presence known and hung around the whole way through.

I would say the cigar ended on a high medium to low full note at best.


Would I buy it again? No.

I was not impressed by the cigar at all. This stick is a plain jane smoke that may be good for mowing the grass but nothing else.

In all honesty, I think the Devil’s Weed Maduro was better than this at a cheaper price for a super cheap smoke. Yea, I didn’t care for this at all.

Good thing I can blame my wife for making me buy these.

  1. It’s a good thing that there isn’t a store in my area. 😉 This sounds like the Arganese FDW, which also has a Milan Marble Maduro, pigtail cap, and closed foot. Quite frankly, I would shy away from this just because of the size and name.

    Thanks for the review/warning.

  2. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of this one. Looks like something you’d find in a convenient store.

    Your wife should have to smoke one too since it was her pick.

  3. “Marble Maduro” – hilarious! Talking about marketing spin! I guess “we dorked this cigar up in production” isn’t quite as catchy… that is one fugly-ass cigar. I am all about a value smoke but I am really surprised you were able to get through that 5 pack. The more I think about it, if I was already committed to a 5 pack, I would have smoke them all too regardless if I was trying to do a review. =)

    Keep those cheap bastard reviews coming!

    BTW – How is that Rabbit Air treating you? I know you had some parts issues with it a while back. It is sort of good that you ran into issues because you can talk to the customer service in addition to the unit too.
