Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic Reviews
If you have tried one of these fantastic smokes, there is little words I can muster to do justice to this gem. This is the one cigar I would pick to be "stuck on a desert isle" with. Fabulous construction, flawless burn, compact white-grey ash and an absolutely tantazling aromatic draw with a taste of coffee and sweet cocoa--delicious-ANYTIME-morning-noon or nite. I've yet to meet a living cigar smoking soul who does not adore a Hemingway! Better consistency & taste than most of the Opus' I have tried. If your friend gives you one of these to try--consider that a tremendous complement & an even better reward. I personally do NOT part easily with my Hemingways.
I've never had a bad Hemingway and the Classic is right up there with the top 5 cigar brands, IMO. The draw was perfect and the flavor got spicier as it approached the halfway mark. I detected flavors of dark chocolate.
I have been smoking several of these every year for about eight years and sharing a couple each year too with close friends that appreciate a good cigar. I have never had a bad one or a complaint. I had one today as the weather was unseasonably warm, and it was just like all the others, solid medium strength with lots of smoke, nice even burn with a rich, slightly sweet cedar flavor and a touch of pepper that mellowed out at the end. Nice nicotine buzz, but not overpowering. They are definitely a go to cigar when you want something special and don't want to be disappointed
This is a long boy, and it was winter, so my cousin and I hunkered down in his garage and lit a couple of these bad boys up. Great look from the beginning, lit up like a champ with a good draw and great flavor. Was smooth and consistent the entire length of the cigar! The only problem I had with this cigar is that I paid retail for them! If I can get a box of these at 1/4 the price, I'd be in heaven!
Mild to Medium in strength, Superior Construction look and feel. Draw a bit tight initially but opens up nicely as it burns down. Even Burn long consistent ash. Fragrant smoke, mild peppery taste notes of cedar cocoa. More enjoyable in second third. Overall. Good relaxing Smoke
Smooth and flavorful, right down to the end. The interesting shape of the foot is easy to light and it promotes an even burn. One of my all time favorites.
Liked this smoke very much. Well-made, smooth draw, great flavor. Will absolutely buy more of these.
I bought a box of these and after the first 2 I was glad I did. Everything about the cigar is what I was looking for. The one thing that stood out was the great taste. It was just as flavorfull as my R&J cubans. These will always be in my humi.
WHEN YOU CAN LIGHT UP WITHOUT IT BEING PACKED TO TIGHT(CANT DRAW) TASTE IS GREAT
I had been a fan of the AF 858 when a good friend gave me several Hemingways to try out. Until that time, I had heard about the Hemingway but I had never tried one. Wow, was I favorably impressed! The draw was smooth and even. And the taste was absolutely wonderful. I thought I had found my "favorite cigar". Not long thereafter, my friend gave me several AF Don Carlos' to try. I was equally amazed. While the taste was more complex and totally different from the Hemingway, I'm having difficulty determining which is my favorite. I still like the 858 for an "everyday" cigar, but I keep a supply of Hemingway and Don Carlos for those special times when I need to fully de-stress, and just kick back and escape.
