"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.
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.
I have been smoking cigars for many years now and this is always my go too. It has so many complex flavors and always has a great taste! Never leaves a bad after taste!!! Cannot find a better medium bodied cigar for the price!
I am so happy with this cigar I simply want more! its in my top 5.
like the short story this is a great smoke just another inch to make it better than the short story
Story Time... I got my box today and unpacked them and put them all away in my humidor. I pulled one out and I was eager to try this after all the great reviews. Lighting this was was a big mistake. it was so delicious. Like others have said the taste was second to none and it smoked B.E.A.utifuly. I really don't want to share these but I'll let my best friend try one. Only one though. For anyone who wants to try these, do it. You won't be disappointed. I had an ash as long as half of the cigar and it was perfect, never seen an ash like that yet. The real sad part is I need to let them rest for a month or two before I go at it again. I'm sure I'll sneak one before then but this cigar is now my favorite. Just WOW!
If you have a favorite, high-end cigar, already....don't smoke this one. My tastebuds have been spoiled rotten. This was an amazing smoke. From start to finish. The nutty flavor, coupled with the intoxicating aroma just left me wow'd!!! I'm gonna buy a box....but I don't intend to share any of them......sorry guys!
If not enough time for the Signature(30min burn), then try this smoke. Same great flavor and more than a 15min burn.
I'm on my 4th box. 'Nuff said!
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!
Had them in the humidor for a month. Had one the other night,great taste,45 minutes of bliss. Didn't mind the chill in the air.Have a couple a week easy, don't want to finish the box too quickly. No brainer will be picking these up again.
These cigars are well constructed, burn great, taste outstanding and are reasonably priced. By far my favourite Hemingway and believe me...i've smoked a bunch. I have yet to get a bad best seller!
