Cigar Review: Short Story by Arturo Fuente

This tiny vitola packs a lot of flavor as did the Work of Art from the Hemingway Line by Arturo Fuente. The Perfecto shape signifies a skilled roller as does the one inch ash that clings after being lit. Notes of sweet cedar compliment a medium finish that lasts all the way to the nub.

I will be honest, this being the first one I’ve smoked, it burned a little hot. Paired with water, the Arturo Fuente Short Story was a little bitter on the prelight but had delicious aromas and a consistent taste just as it’s little brother, the Work of Art.

For new cigar smokers, this is an excellent way to get into a new habit that promotes relaxation, good flavor and only takes roughly 30-45 minutes of time. Once you try the Short Story you’ll quickly find yourself wanting more. Pair with a sweeter bourbon such as the Four Roses

Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Hemingway Work of Art

The Arturo Fuente Work of Art is the first cigar I’ve tried from the Hemingway line. What a powerhouse in such a small vitola! This cigar is barely 4 inches in length. Showing skilled construction in the type of roll showed itself after the cigar has burned down about a quarter of an inch.

The taste starts off like any other Fuente Hemingway, sweetness from the Cameroon wrapper and Dominican binder/filler. The sweetness blends into a pine/cedar combination that’s rich yet not overpowering. A full finish leads to satisfaction for a half hour.

The Hemingway line is the first of Fuente’s limited production run so score these if you can!
