A Fuente Hemingway Signature

Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature Maduro Cigar

Hard to come by, but not extremely rare.

Limited to be sure and always a treat! I have stored about 10 or so for about 2 years.

Easy to light. Great draw with a “V” cut. Good, long lasting, and consistent burn. I have taken to inhaling a bit “too” much through my nose simply because of the outstanding aroma and depth. (Need to taper off from that practice…”Yum.”)

To quote a quote: “A real finger burner.” A great finish without harshness (results may vary with cutting and smoking technique). Recognizable, but well blended notes of earth, chocolate, some wood; a bit of charcoal and perhaps some good old fashioned fine-aged Maduro tobacco.

If you have the fortitude to locate some, they’ll cost you around $10.00 each or about $175.00 a box, tops. Picking some up and aging them would be a great investment (and would last me all year and then some.)
