Artista Cigars, formerly El Artista Cigars, begins shipping Artista Series Cigars to U.S. Retailers today, June 15, 2023. The Artista Series is Artista Cigars flagship brand and represents years of dedication to make blends that represent the company’s new direction.
“We are excited to finally deliver Artista to our patient retailer partners; it took us a bit longer than anticipated to get this brand to retailers but we believe the final product was worth the wait,” states Radhames “Ram” Rodriguez, President of Artista Cigars.
ARTISTA HARVEST & MIDNIGHT
The ARTISTA Series represents the factory’s premium and future super-premium blends. Each blend is represented by a moniker and matching color, each are distinct in strength and profile. States Kevin Newman: “For the Artista lines we challenged ourselves to make something different. We spoke with our Factory Team and worked with our Agronomist. We asked them to seek new materials, source often over-looked tobaccos, and asked our best artisans to help us develop something wholly different”.
ARTISTA Harvest (Yellow-Gold) is a medium bodied blend featuring a supple, top-grade Sumatra wrapper, a flavorful Habano Seco binder, and a proprietary Dominican filler blend that is unlike anything ever offered with notes of spice, rich honey, bright elderberry, and earthy cashew and almond.
ARTISTA Midnight (Dark Blue) is a full-bodied cigar and features a Dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. An Ecuadorian Connecticut shade binder offers sweetness and the filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, DR, and USA impart deep, rich, earthy notes of coffee, spice, and chestnut with a citrus finish.
The new Artista cigar ring with Harvest Yellow / Midnight Blue accents adorns the cigar and references the colors on the cigar box painted to match the band. Artista Harvest & Artista Midnight are offered in boxes of 20 cigars in two sizes each: Box Pressed Robusto 5×54 and Box Pressed Toro 6×50. Artista Harvest & Artista Midnight are line-priced: MSRP per cigar is $10.20 for the Robusto and $10.40 for the Toro.
Artista Harvest & Artista Midnight will be on display and available for order and immediate delivery at PCA 2023 in Las Vegas.
