If you had to pick only one cigar to smoke for the rest of your life, we doubt you could do any better than an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Natural Best Seller. Think about it. First of all, every stogie carrying the famous frontmark is a perfecto, that classic shape where the barrel flares dramatically right past the foot to then taper ever-so-gently to the head. It’s just what a cigar should look like. Now, consider the fact that these smokes contain nothing but delectable Fuente-grown Dominican longleaf tobaccos for the filler and binder. Mmmm, that’s a scrumptious thought. Finally, each curvaceous 4 1/2” X 55 stick is finished with a bold Cameroon wrapper tailor-made to inject flavor directly into your soul.
Wafting an aroma of sweet cedar, the wrapper will provide the lips some promising nutmeg and fresh hay during the draw test. Alight, and as the full width of the barrel begins to smolder, thick reams of smoke will flood the palate with pepper, sweet cream, and warm spice. A splash of citrus will join the dark chocolate that enters at the halfway mark, followed by oak and espresso as the final third is reached.
