Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature – Cigar Review

December 28, 2008 · Posted in Cigar Review 

This is the cigar I smoked Christmas night. Expecting a lot from this cigar I needlessly got my hopes up and, as you will see, they were dashed. In fact, it forced me to create a brand new rating category called unsmokable. Here’s my review:

I am smoking this cigar with Single Barrel Wild Turkey, which is quite smooth, and water. The construction of this cigar looks extremely difficult with a nipple on the foot, which is called a perfecto tip (a tapered end at the foot). It also has a lot of oil and it’s just a visually impressive cigar. Can’t wait!

X-Mas Flame!

The draw is very tight at first. I hope it’s just because of the unique shape of this cigar. It is beginning to open up a little bit as the burn gets past the shoulder of the nipple. It’s sweet with some spice. Medium-full bodied.

Draw is just getting worse and the burn isn’t much better. This cigar is a pain. If it weren’t for the draw this would be a very good cigar. Unfortunately, the draw kills it.

Leather, spice, sweetness, but it just doesn’t draw. That means I can’t get much of those flavors from the cigar. It’s a damn shame because I was really looking forward to smoking this cigar. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
