Arturo Fuente Hemingway
Short Story · 4 × 49 AFSS
For smokers that favored Perfectos, or "shaped" cigars, the 1980s were a particularly tough decade. Once extraordinarily popular in the 20s, 30s and 40s, these specific handmade cigars had now all but disappeared from the public eye, as no one in the industry was making shaped cigars.
Then, one day on a trip to Florida, Carlos Fuente Sr. found some old Perfecto molds in a warehouse. With a deep admiration and understanding of this particular style, he brought the molds back to his factory in the Dominican Republic and taught his master roller exactly how to make these difficult smokes. Thus, the Fuente Hemingway series initiated a resurgence of Arturo Fuente cigars into the American market.
These highly respected hand rolled cigars are finely crafted with aged, mild-medium Dominican filler tobaccos, a Dominican binder and a delicate West African Cameroon wrapper. The result is a complex mixture of earth and wood flavors coupled with a crisp, spicy finish. The Arturo Fuente Hemingway Cigars offer a timeless, flavorful smoke you won't want to be without; we offer variations like Short Story, Masterpiece, Between the Lines and more, available as singles, bundles, cedar chests and more. Check out the many Arturo Fuente Cigars for sale and treat yourself to the best of the best.

The best budget cigar you will ever find

Sometimes, you need to watch your budget a little more closely than usual while still hoping to enjoy that sweet tobacco taste and aroma you're used to. Sometimes, you just need something short that won't have you sitting outside in the freezing cold tundra of your middle-of-nowhere town (or the coma-inducing heat of your city perfectly placed over the center of Hell itself). In either case, Arturo Fuente's Hemingway Short Story is the be-all, end-all. While personally I think the perfecto tip is pointless other than aligning itself with the "Hemingway" theme, this cigar is nutty, creamy, flavorful and does not wear out its welcome. Perfect for when you don't have a lot of time or just want a short-but-sweet smoke, the Short Story is an excellent example of reservation at its finest. Like one of Hemingway's real-life masterpiece short stories, this cigar gets to the point in a hurry and never stays longer than it should.
