"Good everyday smoke"
I think this is a good quality smoke. An everyday type. Good lower medium body, good smoke output, good aroma. I mean it's not a 90 point smoke, but it's good. And for the price I would buy and keep a couple in the humi.

"Got in a sampler glad I didnt buy more."
Burn was ok but not much flavor. I was just disapointed with this cigar.

"Puts the UGH! in ENOUGH"
The Artorius was part of Famous' medium medium sampler L. Started off with some peppery notes, but that is where it ended - ugh! The cigar would burn out without continual nursing. The poor construction (tunelling) indicates the Artorius is little more than a training stick for new torcedores. I got through about half the cigar before I had had enough.

Got this in a sampler and wasn't impressed at all.Wouldn't smoke again even if it was free.

"Not aged long enough"
I`v had maybe one out of seven taste "right", the rest have tasted sick, like maybe the baco is`nt aged long enough. Construction was also poor, with most splitting and needing to be tossed way before the nub.
I`m usually not this harsh with Famous, as it is my favorite vender, but these are a waist of money IMO.

Just got a 5-pack in from an auction and I really enjoyed the first one.
Although, it isn't anything ground breaking, it is a very pleasant smoke. I will pick up some more.

I bought a 5 pack of the Grand Robustos on The Monster to get free shipping for my order; so I chose these among the least expensive offerings. Being Italian, I was drawn to the name...Artorius. Since the 5 pack was free shipping essentially, I had no expectations. On inspection, it looked well-made with a nice label. The stick was firm but had no weight; it was like air in my hand. I toasted and fired it. The first couple of draws produced a spicy, woodsy taste with thick smoke. After that, it continued to produce thick, white smoke but the flavor disappeared entirely. An added nuisance on my continuing flavorless journey was the fact that the burn required constant correction. So, halfway in, I put Arty down and let him go to meet his god of war (Mercury, I think). Oh well, free shipping.

"Average at best"
At best this is an average smoke. I just finished the 5th of my 5er and according to my database it has been one year since I added them to my humi. Don't get me wrong, it's not a horrible smoke, but you can find many better for the same price (think I got these 5/$15). Reminds me of a rosado, but brings nothing new to the table. Keep checking cigar monster, for $15, you can find much better smokes in the same price range. Try Oliva or Pepin and Rocky's. I also scored 5ers of 601 blue robusto's for the same price, now that's a deal and they smoke these "smokes" and day of the week.

"Very nice stick"
I purchased a box through cigar auctioneer without any expectation. After smoking a several, I am really liking these sticks. Good flavor and aroma, solid feel in the hand. One or two burn issues, but nothing that ruined the occasion. Recommended.

I was not expecting much from this house brand, but bought a 5pk and have been very surprised at the taste and complexity of this stick. Started off with good woodsy and peppery notes and then mellowed out with a nice leathery consistent flavor. Construction not perfect, had a few veins but was rolled well. Overall a good stick for the price. Would definitely recommend a try.
