The Famous Arturo Fuente Hemmingway Short Story Cigars
The Arturo Fuente family is undoubtedly one of the most famous names in the cigar industry. For four generations they have been producing some of the most sought-after blends in the world by using only the best tobaccos, many of which are grown on their legendary Chateau de La Fuente farm in the Dominican Republic.
One of the most popular lines in the storied Arturo Fuente portfolio is the Hemingway series that was released in 1983, starting with the 6 x 47 Signature. This classic Perfecto still commands a huge following today, 36 years after it was first released. That sure is saying a lot with all the top-rated blends, sizes, and line-extensions that followed.
Following on the heels of the highly successful Signature, the company released the Arturo Fuente Hemmingway Short Story cigar in the same Cuban-style Perfecto shape but with a shorter and fatter 4 x 49 size.
Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story cigars are skillfully handmade by only the best rollers at the Fuente factory with their signature blend of estate-grown Dominican binder and long-fillers, covered by a toothy Cameroon wrapper. Not only is this Cameroon leaf toothy, but it’s also virtually seamless and displays a nice oily sheen.
Thanks to its petite bulbous shape, the Short Story offers a very complex smoking experience. First light brings heavy top notes of earth and pepper from the pointy tip until it reaches the beginning of the barrel. Then, this beauty really opens-up with scrumptious tasting notes of wood, cinnamon, leather, baking spices, and cocoa, joining the mix. The finish is long and creamy, and the signature sweet tobacco aroma will have many enthusiasts nearby guessing that you’re smoking an Arturo Fuente cigar.
Famous novelist Ernest Hemingway wrote many a great short story, but unfortunately, he never lived to smoke his namesake cigar. This is too bad because we think that the Arturo Fuente Hemmingway Short Story is one of those modern-day classic cigars that everyone should try at least once!
