Meh... Burn was good but flavors were nothing to write home about. Did leave a nice creamy taste on the tongue after the fact, but the smoking experience itself was underwhelming. And there was residue on the wrapper just like I had it happen with the Short Story. Burnt for about 50 minutes.

"Great if you pick a good one"
I absolutely loved the first and the second one that I had, and each of them took about an hour. The draw was a little tight, but i did not want to cut it any further and risk ruining it. But all in all, the first two were fantastic, medium in boldness and medium in taste. So pretty good so far.
In summary, I love the perfecto shape, love the burn, love the boldness and how long I could enjoy these. Don't like the draw that much, and the quality across the cigars is a bit questionable, but overall, pretty darn good.

I have a box that's been sitting in my humidor for about 2 or 3 weeks. I was trying to wait at least a month but just couldn't hold out any longer. Draw was great, burned evenly and tasted good all the way through. I'm looking forward to the rest of them as they get a little age on them. I have a box of WOAM that I just picked up as well.. Love the hemingway line. Can't go wrong!

"Simply the best"
I usually smoke CAO and RP and am very satisfied with their quality, but when I really want to treat myself, I go with an Arturo Fuente. I first bought from the Hemingway line having studied English and literature in college, but I feel I have found my cigar. I just bought my first box of the Work of Arts on the auction and got them today. I cant wait until I can smoke one.

"One of the few smooth cigars with ample taste"
Excekent burn, smooth taste. The best of the Hemmingway line.

"FUENTE FAMILY`S LEGACY IN TROUBLE"
As a longtime Fuente smoker it saddens me to say the quality is suffering with both the Hemingway and Don Carlos lines. It`s always been a crapshoot when it comes to Hemingway Signatures as almost every box I`ve gotten over the last two years has a few sticks rolled too tight to smoke. And then the saddest news of all for me is the cigars the Fuentes these days are calling the Don Carlos Robusto. They are pathetic shells of a once BOLD, COMPLEX and well worth the money cigar,now they are CRAP!!!! I`m deeply disappointed.WAKE UP CARLITO,PEOPLE ARE GETTING FED UP SMOKING YOUR FLOOR SWEEPINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
