As bad as this same cigar was in the Churchill..........it was equally as good in the the Robusto.
I purchased this cigar to round up an order to a nice even # . I was pleasantly surprised with this stick . For a Connecticut wrapped cigar it has a very nice spice to it . As I smoked it , the flavor profile built to a slightly stronger smoke , which i enjoyed , because I enjoy a stronger profile cigar . All in all a very nice stick .
The Artisan Maduro is a wonderfully tasty cigar for a very good price! This cigar is very well made and the dark, oily Maduro wrapper is silky smooth. The draw was a little tight at first, and the smoke started out quite peppery, but after about 1/2" it really mellowed out and from there it just got better and better. The smoke was very thick and tasty from start to finish with a great (almost strong) coffee taste, hints of cocoa & spice, and a smooth mocha finish. This cigar is definitely worthy of a spot in my humidor!?
I have only been smoking cigars regularly for about a yr. ( not an expert ) I bought myself a new 50 count humidor and needed to fill it, I had no idea what to expect when I bought the Artisan in a deal with a bundle of FN5 for $87 but I went for it. Wow what a steal. the taste is full bodied sweet and creamy . The draw and burn were perfect, the construction flawless. I can't believe I got this lucky on a blind buy. Thanx Famous I will buy these again!!
This is one awesome stick for the price. The taste is nothing like I have tasted from cigars around the same price point. You cannot go wrong with picking some of these up.
Can t beat the value! A really good stick for the price!
beautiful burn and ash. I was shocked by the price and flavor. I m keeping them stocked in my humidor.
This is the first one I have smoked from a recently purchased test flight. This has got to be one of the most attractive cigars I have ever had. Its appearance was flawless and the taste was great. My only complaint: it seemed just a bit too mild for me.
I really liked the quality and the price
The Vitolas Robusto seems to be well made and compares with much more expensive cigars. No, it may not compare to a thirty dollar cigar, but I have smoked many a $5-$10.00 cigars that tasted and smoked much worse. Cigars are like ART. Meaning they are both subjective to the opinion of who is viewing or smoking it. Frankly I find that when I am trying a new cigar for the first time I find myself to be very critical, and these were no different, but after I smoke a few they certainly seem to get better to me. Matter of fact my expectations are much higher when smoking an expensive cigar and for me personally I simply can t see enough of a difference to justify the extra cost. But hey, everyone is different and needs to decide for themselves which cigars seem to be right for them.Happy Smoking, J.O.W.
