Fuente Hemingway Signature

For years I've stayed away from Fuentes. They always struck me as hard to get expensive cigars. Which is laughable considering my fondness for Cubans. My buddy gave me a Hemingway Signature yesterday and I must say that it was a damn fine cigar. Size was in the Corona Gorda zone that I like. Complex, flavorful with just the right amount of strength. They appear to be more available than in the deep dark past of the early aughts. I need to stock some of these!

Hemingways are great cigars, I prefer the Maduro versions.

They're not all FF Opus X!
Like the Hemingways, like the Don Carlos, even like the Flor Fina, basic green band. Cut my teeth on 8-5-8s.

I've always enjoyed the Cameroon, but will give the maduro a try.

I like Cameroon a lot, always have. Like I said, cut my teeth on the 858, and the La Aurora regular line.

858 Maddie is my cigar that I compare all others.
Hemi Sig maduro is a great smoke. I have a tradition where I always smoke a Hemingway Maduro when I fry turkeys for Thanksgiving.

I have always thought the Fuentes make good cigars at a fairly reasonable price (leaving out Opus, which are crazy priced).
