Blind Cigar Review: El Artista | Big Papi Slugger Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: El Artista | Big Papi Slugger

“My first impressions were negative due to the size of the cigar. Eliminating my bias towards that was easy once I started smoking the cigar. It really was a pleasant and long experience. This is still not necessarily going to be a first choice smoke for me but I can say it was flavorful enough all the way through to work for a niche smoke at the right time for me. Well constructed and good looking, I’d revisit this cigar again.” -Diana (ArmyRN)
