A classic cigar with classic good looks, that's what most reviewers expected with the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature. A classic cigar with classic good looks, that's what most reviewers expected with the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature, and what most people admitted was delivered. The Signature is one of the larger cigars in the Hemingway line, but still maintains that classic perfecto look that is common throughout the series. The cigar shows well, as most cigars in this price range should. A few veins and spots appeared on the wrappers of our samples, but nothing that detracted much from the cigar. The Cameroon wrapper on the Signature surprises some with a somewhat mild taste. Combine that with an almost complete lack of aftertaste, and our reviewers were raving about the flavor. One of our guest reviewers had a bit of experience with the entire Hemingway line, and was quoted as saying "I've had the Short story and Classic and now the Signature. I think it's probably the best of the series so far. Better than the Short Story and similar to the Classic." Some minor shortcomings were noticed in the samples we sent out. A loose draw was the most common occurrence, with a loose ash coming in a close second. Not major, but we are paying $10-$14 bucks for one of these. What it looks like we have in the Hemingway line is a fantastic Cameroon wrapper, blanketing a fairly well made cigar. The Hemingway line has fallen by the wayside a touch as the marketing engine at Fuente churns out publicity for the Opus X and recently the Anejo line. Don't let the lack of marketing hype fool you as the Hemingways remain a legitimate premium cigar. Sadly the Hemingway Signature, and the rest of the line have not suffered in price, as they remain on the high end of the cost spectrum. The most common thread throughout all of our reviews was best represented by the following quip. "I would smoke this cigar regularly if it was less expensive. If I'm going to be asked to spend $14 to get a cigar of this caliber, they might as well pack it in as an industry. Luckily I know better, and thusly don't end up spending my money on Hemingways." We can't argue with such logic. Vital Statistics: Shape = Grand Corona Length=6" RG = 47 Wrapper = Cameroon Filler = D.R. Binder = D.R. Estimated Cost = $8.00
