Hemingway Short Story Maduro by Arturo Fuente


Come to find out, this is a somewhat rare and hard-to-find cigar. And, to top it off, this generous gift from Cigar Sensei (@bmwMark, Mark Dikeos from Pacific Motorsports) has been aged for an additional four-five years in Mark’s humidor. This cigar was originally acquired in 2014.

I’ve had more than a handful of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Stories in my time, and this specimen was beyond any Short Story I’ve ever smoked; “Wow”!

What a treat! This little cigar is something to behold. Dark almost black Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper invites me to light it. Volumes of smooth rich earthy smoke and tobacco flavors with the perfect spice on the retrohale greet me.

I wanted more; before I knew it, almost an hour had gone by and so came the end to my perfect morning cigar.

Stay Smoky

The Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story Maduro may be a rare cigar.

“The cigar of myth and legend, that many people never even knew existed, and was only handed out in minuscule quantities over a period of years. Until now, I exaggerate a bit, but not by much…

According to the Fuentes, only 1200 boxes of 25 were produced to be sold, making a total of 30,000 Short Story Maduros…” – Halfwheel .
