Team Cigar Review: El Artista Big Papi Firecracker

The El Artista Big Papi Firecracker had an average and very linear flavor profile throughout, which could be expected with its short length. To me, this size doesn't present the best of what the line can offer and I'd prefer one of the regular production vitolas when it comes to this line. Fun to smoke it in this size, but I don't see myself returning.

For the Sindicato Artista Robusto, it almost reaches "good" levels. The leather harsh tannins improve as the cigar burns through the second third and onwards, so with that said, it's almost a good cigar. And with the attractive $8 price point, it's that much more appealing. Try a couple.

$5 for an overall flavor profile that is good. This equates to buy, buy, buy. If you like all the great softer flavor notes in a good Connecticut shade with a bit more spice, the El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut is no doubt for you. Even if you don't, I think you should buy a fiver for only $25 to try it. Big flavors, small hit to the wallet. You really can't beat that.
