Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines

arturofuentehemingwaybetweenthelinespic1The Arturo Fuente brand of cigars was founded by Arturo Fuente, Sr. in 1912 in the Ybor City section of Tampa, Florida. After changing locations over the years and surviving disasters such as fires at its factories, the brand eventually moved to its current location in the Dominican Republic.

Starting small nearly one century ago, the Fuente brand now owns six factories and four plantations that it uses to produce cigars numbering in the tens of millions. Despite high volume production, the company still produces high quality cigars by keeping newer generations of the Fuente family in charge of operations and quality control.

The Hemingway Between the Lines is an extremely limited edition release from Fuente. It has been said that only 2,500 of these special sticks are made available to the public on a yearly basis. As far as the cigar's moniker is concerned, if you guessed that it was named in reference to the popular writer Ernest Hemingway, you would be correct. The Hemingway line originally began with offerings in three different sizes, which eventually grew to several more, including the Between the Lines size, which is the second shortest in the line overall. It's considered a medium-bodied smoke, adhering to the supposed wants of Cynthia Fuente, granddaughter of the company's founder, who requested a cigar that was smooth yet flavorful at the same time. With that request came the introduction of the Hemingway line.

The Hemingway Between the Lines measures 4.25x46. Its filler comes from the Dominican Republic, as does its binder. The wrapper is an interesting mixture of Connecticut Shade and Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro tobacco that not only adds flavor to the cigar but creates a beautiful barber pole design on its exterior. The Hemingway Between the Lines is handmade in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The cigar gets some of its medium-bodied profile by the way it is made, as it is only released after nearly five months of aging to soften its flavor a bit.

just because they make 2500/yr doesnt make it an exceptional cigar. It sells for criminal amounts because of its rarity but the cigar itself isn't that great at all. I speak from experience.

My preference is full-bodied cigars so I picked up a 5 pack for cheap in a quick buy auction. Smoked the first one last night and found it very harsh the first half, then is mellowed out some. I found it a bit sour and one dimensional... Maybe some time in the humidor will help these sticks develop some flavors.
