Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature Reviews
When you are in the mood for a great cigar and don't want to gamble with something new....I also go to a Fuente Hemingway Signature.....the flavor, construction and burn will never leave you wanting! Its a great "go to" cigar when you are in a serious mood to enjoy one.
Maybe I just got a bad one. The construction was very poor quality. The cap was coming apart right out of the cellophane wrapper right when I got it home from the FSS store in Easton. The wrapper had a few blemishes. Did not expect this from a pricey cigar. I went ahead and lit it up anyway since I have been looking forward to this smoke for some time given the mostly very positive reviews. Taste was OK until the rest of the wrapper started to split and tase went very acrid. The complete wrapper then started to come off. One of the worst cigar experiences I ever had. In general I feel that all Fuentes are very overpriced as they try to market them as very rare and very high quality. What a joke.
Love the cigar. It is a pleasure to smoke. But tough to enjoy if they are out of stock so often. May have to order from someone else.
Hemingways are equal to good Cubans, in my opinion. I ve smoked a box of Short Story, several Best Seller and decided that this Signature format works for me. I suggest you try various sizes to see which you prefer. Construction is excellent, draw is perfect. Given the Perfecto shape, be patient on lighting. Draw seems tight on the Signature until you burn down to the full cigar width.
This is a spectacularly good cigar. The Perfecto shape allows for a perfect light every time and a brilliantly even burn. It makes me wish ALL cigars were rolled like this! Every Hemingway Signature I ve had has been brilliant, and their popularity means they are always fresh when ordered online not true of less popular brands . The draw is fantastic. The only thing I ve ever had that drew better was the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel which I thought was nasty tasting, but had the best draw ever maybe I got a really good one . The appearance is excellent. This is a hand rolled masterpiece that makes me smile whenever I hold one. The taste and smell of this cigar is fantastic. I could smoke these exclusively and thus far the only thing I ve smoked that I ve enjoyed more is the Davidoff Millenium Rubusto which is less popular and expensive, so it s easy to get a bad one . The construction was excellent - no issues whatsoever in all that I ve smoked. I enjoy variety so I don t buy a box of these, but I always keep one of every type of Hemingway in stock. Of all of the Hemingways, the Signature is probably my favorite so if you are going to start with one - this is it! I d describe the flavor as sweeter and chocolatey with a great leather flavor. This is a strong mild to weak medium body cigar, so it s not going to wipe you out or require you to have a full meal before smoking. It s got kick, so I wouldn t call it a mild, but it s a kick that someone who can handle a few shots will find satisfying, but not too harsh. It s definitely weaker than the Davidoff Millennium Blend.
Consistent, smooth, great flavor. I've smoked around 40 of these so far. #1 go-to cigar for me.
Excellent cigar for the money. Long burn and taste. Not very "hot" at the end. Took 15 fishing and all my buds loved the smoke!
I am in the middle of my 1st box. I will admit I had one that was totally a bust but the rest of them have been nothing short of outstanding. I have since bought more to age in my humi as these keep getting better the longer they sit. I can't wait to have my next one but they are expensive for everyday smokes.
This was an awesome smoke very tasty form start to finish. Burn was even ash held on well. Well constructed. If it was cheaper would enjoy more often.
Although this review is for the Signature, these comments also apply to Short Story, Best Seller and Work of Art. The taste, flavor, body, aroma, feel, construction, appearance and burn are what smoking premium cigars is all about. Any of these are my go to cigars. Each of them also improve with age. They are always in my box.
I had the unfortunate pleasure of smoking a signature after the SHort Story. The Signature is well made with a beautifull wrapper and a great earthy pre-light aroma but... The body of the cigar let me down. The draw was a bit light and i hoped for more. Maybe reading the reviews set me up for more than what i was to get but i was a little dissapointed. Still a good cigar with a perfect burn but a little mild.
