This starts out good, the burn is a little uneven and the draw is quite hard, but it tastes decent. The final third however is very rough, lots of purging needed to keep it palatable. It is remarkably well built for the price, much better than i would have expected for a buck. Next time i think ill go down a size though, its not really nice enough for a 2 hour smoke.
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!
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.
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.
cigar has a great even taste. Will probably replace my regular smoke. Only thing I ve experienced is that if you don t continue to smoke it will go out in a minute.
was quite please good draw-mild taste--even burn..
Wow Just finish my test flight Artisan cigars, enjoyed all,however, i have two favorites> the Artisan Nic maduro and the Artisan Honduras Habano, I hope the Churchill's are as good as the Robustos
