Cigar News: El Artista Buffalo TEN Announced

Buffalo TEN is a complex blend composed of six different tobaccos from across The Americas and Caribbean. Buffalo TEN features a toothy Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper and a rich Dominican Negrito binder. The filler blend is sourced from USA, Colombia, and the company’s own fields in the Dominican Republic.

The El Artista Cimarron Maduro Robusto has a reasonable list of flavors including cocoa, baking spices, cedar, earth, vegetal notes, minerality and some sweetness. Unfortunately, the cigar struggles to harmonize throughout the experience, with the middle third being the most organized for me.

Personal Cigar Review: El Artista Fugly

For a cheroot, the El Artista Fugly smoked pretty well. The flavors were pretty average, but for this price point, it's got some good value. I'd have no problem smoking this as a kick around cigar when I'm looking for decent flavor but not able to pay much attention to it.

For me, the El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto is more towards the traditional side of Connecticut shade cigars. The baseline flavors of sweet cream and bread are notes I always welcome to any cigar. Paired with white pepper, cedar, hay, nuts and underlying bitterness rounds out to a profile in which I can enjoy any time of the day.

Titled Cimarron, the line includes three separate blends. Two for US, one for the European market. The two US blends include one blend in San Andres wrapper and one in Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. The binder is Dominican Negrito, grown by El Artista on their farms in and around Tabmboril. Each includes a multi-country blend of premium tobaccos including T-13 Hybrid developed by Radhames Rodriguez.

With this cigar being a re-blend of a vintage cigar, I could see some of the similarities that they were able to accomplish. I think this would be a good cigar to have after a big and heavy meal and would pair well with a brown spirit.
