"My go to cigar"
Consistent, smooth, great flavor. I've smoked around 40 of these so far. #1 go-to cigar for me.

"Excellent Cigar For The $$$$"
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!

"this is my current favorite"
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.

"Best Cigar I Have Ever Smoked for the Price"
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.

"Good but not great!"
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.

"One of the great legal cigars"
I've been smoking cigars for 30 years...since I've traveled internationally, I've also sampled cubans. And had some exceptional ones.
However, for a domestically available cigar I find the Fuente's hard to beat, especially the Fuente Hemingway:
After 5 boxes, I've not found one badly rolled; The flavors are varied, and the smoke is consistent, burning evenly, with full flavor throughout the cigar...I have to throw it away due to burning my fingers, before losing the flavor. It does require a special technique for lighting: Start by toasting the nipple on the end, all around, not in the flame, but above. Once the entire nipple is hot, draw easily once or twice. Do not puff away until the nipple has slowly burned off...I also gently blow back through the cigar a few times at the start.

I have smoked dozens of different brands, and this has become my favorite. Waiting for a full box to go on sale.

Beautifully made, great tasting, and consistent cigar. The burn can start unevenly, but it helps to trim the foot of the cigar. Flavor is medium/full, and very satisfying. I like these better than some Opus X I've had recently, and I can't think of a better value in premium cigars.
