Artista Midnight Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Artista Midnight Robusto

The Artista Midnight Robusto had a first third that stood out. As the cigar progressed, I found the profile to be pleasant but not as engaging or interesting as the first third. Price point aside, I'm not sure there was enough here for me to want to return to it. Artista has a number of offerings I would pick over the Midnight. I am curious whether it would perform differently in a Toro size.

Team Cigar Review: Artista Harvest Robusto

It's been a while since I had a consistently good Artista. This Artista Harvest Robusto hits in all the great ways. Sweet, spicy, stone fruit, all working in great harmony. If you're like me and pass on most Artista cigars, don't turn your head on this one and try a few.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Big Papi Firecracker

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.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut

$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.
