"My favorite shape"
Awesome burn, taste, construction, this is the real deal. I usualy prefer a little fuller body smoke but this has plenty of taste. I also prefer this shape to the other hemingways. One thing it says these are five inches but I put some on a tape and it says 4.5". Don't let the smaller sizes scare you this is an easy 40 minute smoke. The only problem is keeping my dad and brother away from my stash!

"Hate to Disagree"
I hate to disagree with all of these glowing reviews. I hope that because mine is the only bad one that I got a dud at the store. Mine was very hard to draw even after the foot opened up. It only started to get easier about half way through the cigar. By that time the taste had been ruined. I'll try another if I run across any more.

"A Legendary Smoke"
The Hemingway Best Seller is a classic. A truly enjoyable smoke from start to finish. Just like the Short Story, this cigar is one of the best "everyday" cigars I have found and one of my all-around favorites. Sure, I?d never turn down a Padron 1926 or Anniversary Maduro (when I can get them), but I have never been disappointed with this fine, fine cigar.

"Always great-- a favorite"
Hemingways have been a favorite of mine for years. I have 10 in my humidor waiting for a special occasion. My only complain is that they can sometimes have a tight draw. I prefer these to OpusX.

"The whole line is good!"
I tend towards liking full flavor Nicaraguan sticks, so I consider this an excellent mild/med. stick. It is flavorfull enough though that it will stand on it's own merits any time of day. I like to keep a box on hand for regular rotation with the Nic. sticks. I have often opened the humidor with a particular Nic. in mind and ended up with one of these instead. I've never 2nd guessed myself after one, they always hit the spot.

The Hemingway line is an amazing line of cigars. The Best Seller became my everyday smoke after the first one. I'm typically an AVO and Ashton smoker and appreciated the extra flavor the Hemingway had to offer. These are terrific cigars and I recommend them to anyone looking for something with a bit more flavor.

"Nothing else compares!!!"
HANDS DOWN this is the best cigar I've ever smoked. The draw was awesome. The burn was very even and this had a good flavor. You cannot go wrong with this cigar.

""Just like a good book, you hate to have it end.""
"If you love the Hemingway Short Story, you're gonna love this smoke. Just a bit longer than the Short Story and just as tasty. A well built attractive little cigar that starts out pleasant and mild. As you get midway through this little gem, the flavor has built to a meaty medium strength smoke. Leathery and nutty with just a hint of spice. It never loses it's creamy and full rounded flavor. Go ahead and smoke it down to the band. Delicious. One of my favorites. Great with a nice single malt, or perhaps on a trout stream.
