    Pulita 60 Aniversario Robusto. And that says it all, this line was first available in 2016 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Tabacalera El Artista. And the name? That is a tribute to the patriarch of the family, Ramón “Pulita” Rodriguez. He was the one that started making cigars in 1956. Since then, Tabacalera El Artista has made millions of cigars and has become a tobacco grower with a great reputation. And for a good reason, as they grow some rare tobaccos. Some hybrids they created, and some very old varieties such as Dominican Negrito. Tobacco that was almost forgotten until Tabacalera El Artista brought it back.

    And that Negrito was the favorite tobacco of Ramon Pulita Rodriguez according to his grandson Ram. That’s why Ram was adamant about using this tobacco for this blend. It is used as the wrapper over a Dominican Criollo 98 binder. The filler comes from Pennsylvania and Colombia with Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco. This is a 5×50 Robusto, a classic size.

    The review

    The cigar has a leather-looking wrapper, Colorado Maduro in color. There is some oil. The head of the cigar is quite flat. The construction feels good. At first glance, the ring looks quite plain and generic but it deserves a closer inspection. The embossing in the golden center says 60, and the lettering around the center mentions the name and anniversary. The gold medals are full of details as well. The cigar has a medium-strong but pleasant woody aroma.

    The cold draw is good. It has a bit of a herbal and spice flavor. The first puff after lighting is coffee. Then dark spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg show up, together with a hint of sweetness. After a centimeter, there is cinnamon with wood, leather, and soil. The coffee is still noticeable. The cigar is balanced and smooth with a nice dark spice sweetness. Easy to retrohale.

    The Colombian tobacco provides an acidity that blends all other flavors together. It’s the glue of the blend. The nice mix of wood and dark spices make this cigar very enjoyable. The final third has coffee, wood, leather, hay, pepper, acidity, and those dark spices. There’s a little more sweetness. The last few puffs have more pepper.

    The draw is very good. But in the beginning, the cigar tended to tunnel. It took come correcting. But once it’s under control the burn is fine. The smoke is thick and nice. The white ash is quite firm. This cigar is medium to full in body, yet medium in flavor. The smoke time is two and a half hours.

    Strength: Medium-full
    Flavor: medium
