Arturo Fuente Hemingway Masterpiece Cigar Review
My mic connection wiggled loose 1/3 of the way in to the vid – so it’s one of the rare written only tonight! This 9×52 perfecto stick features a dark brown, smooth and oily softly packed wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, large triple cap and potent sweet cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful but thin mild-medium bodied smoke showing very smooth, oily flavors of a sweet cedar on both the draw and finish. The first third burns very well but fast with a razor sharp burn and flavors much like the first light, up to a medium body. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 45 minutes, performance and construction is flawless while the blend remains unchanged. Ending at 1:20 the last third finally woke up a bit, moving to thicker smoke and adding a sweet cream to the draw mix.
