Arturo Fuente: Hemingway Short Story (Perfecto) (4.0″x49)
$7.90 – $163.29
“My grandfather made Perfecto cigars; they were very popular during the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. When I was growing up we made perfectos by hand, but as time went by there were fewer and fewer cigar makers rolling perfectos. As the cigar makers grew older, they retired, they passed away. It took a real master to make a true Perfecto cigar.”
“As a child I was fascinated with that shape and the really difficult art of the craft that the Perfecto cigar represents. So when we first came to the Dominican Republic in 1980, I thought we should start making those shapes again. At that time nobody was making shaped cigars. I wanted to bring back that old world style, just to keep the art, the tradition, the craft, alive.”
“Today we make an entire line of Perfecto cigars. These cigars are something special for our fellow cigar smokers to enjoy.”
The name Arturo Fuente is synonymous with cigar decadence, and the Hemingway line is widely considered one of their best. The blend features a flavorful mix of Dominican binder and filler tobacco topped off by a rich Cameroon wrapper – unless you’re lucky enough to have caught us while we’ve got some of the elusive Maduro versions on the shelf. These iconic stogies deliver a smooth, mellow to medium smoke with lots of complexities and subtle nuances to be appreciated by the aficionado.
