In terms of flavor, I wouldn’t call this Tabacos Baez stick complex. I would call it enjoyable though. The first third is a mix of cedar and the familiar pepper. The pepper has a tiny kick to it, but is far from strong. The second third offers up more pepper that eventually gives way to tasty cocoa. The final third completes the experience with pure coffee. Medium-bodied – yes. Full-flavored – no.

Was I overwhelmed with joy while smoking the Serie SF Robusto? No, but I didn’t expect to be. Why? Just look at the price. A single sells for about $2.50. At that price point, you have yourself a true value cigar that’s very affordable. I’d call the Serie SF a great cigar to keep around when you want something smooth. I wouldn’t have it after dinner, but it’s worth its weight in gold as a cigar while mowing the lawn or performing some other task. It’s not great, but it is solid, and medium-bodied fans or those who enjoy Don Pepin offerings should give it a shot. You don’t have much to lose. The Serie SF Robusto also can be found in packs of five or boxes of 20.

The Tabacos Baez Serie SF Robusto earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Fuente’s Short Story Maduro was introduced at the 2011 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas. The Short Story Maduro is not only limited in its stature, as its supply is short as well. Fuente has limited the initial release to just 1,000 boxes.

The Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story Maduro is a Perfecto that measures 4 x 46/49. The cigar features a Dominican filler and binder, plus a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. Made in the Dominican Republic, the Short Story Maduro is said to be medium-bodied in strength.
