REVIEW: Arsen Connoisseur Selection 2010

Arsen is a relatively new player in the cigar industry. Unfortunately, their Connoisseur Selection 2010 is a let-down.

The construction is flawed, the intake is poor, the ash hold is nearly non-existent, and the ‘gar offers a sour, almost fermented taste. The earthy pre-light puff and an ample buzz seem to be the only things going for this smoke.

Though they are on the right track, it seems the folks at Arsen need to spend a bit more time “learning the ropes.”
