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.
