Many thanks to Austin from the 7th Street Reserve for taking these excellent pictures for my series of reviews.

Arturo Fuente has worldwide recognition as a producer of high quality cigars, and the subject of today’s review, the Arturo Fuente Rosado Gran Reserva is no exception.
The Gran Reserva is a limited release cigar, available only to special Fuente accounts, so consider yourself lucky if you spot one in a shop.
Even though I do not generally like mellow, mild blends, preferring a stronger, more robust flavor, I have to give the proper, due kudos to Arturo Fuente for the Rosado Gran Reserva, as it is an excellent cigar. Let’s see why and how.

Please welcome Nathan, our newest contributor. Here is his short bio:

Nathan has long been a wine aficionado captivated by the elegant complexity of Bordeaux. He soon developed an affinity for cigars after exploring the distinct commonalities between the two. In keeping with the axiom of quality over quantity, Nathan keeps a modest fifty count humidor full of premium cigars he enjoys most. If asked to choose a favorite, he would likely reach for a Padrón Serie 1926.

He starts off with a review of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature. Enjoy!

The Hemingway Between the Lines (BTL) was my holy grail of cigars when I first started in the hobby. From the initial time I saw one I set to acquiring my own and although shortly after I realized that while they are not the easiest to come by, they are not really impossible to find. Regardless, I was still excited to have purchased one and stored it away for a future time. Recently, I had gotten over being sick and decided to celebrate with a smoke.

Even new cigar enthusiasts seem to know all about the legendary and elusive Hemingway Maduros and the Work of Art tends to be one of the most coveted of that group. Given that fact, I am not going to bore everyone with a lot of fluff on this review. If you don’t know about them, a quick Google search will tell you all you need to know. It seems like a lot of cigar smokers, especially the newer ones who haven’t had a chance to try these, go to great lengths to run the Hemingway Maduros down. If you haven’t had the pleasure of a Hemingway Maduro, the thing you need to be aware of is that they only come out twice a year. Just before Fathers’ Day and again just before the Christmas Holidays. Those are the times to be on the lookout for them.

Cigar Pass hosted a memorial raffle last year whose proceeds went towards the running of the online community. Members were given the opportunity to buy tickets for the chance to win one of several boxes of premium cigars that had been donated by various shops and members. After deciding that the entry was worth just the knowledge I had already received from there, I entered and began hoping on hopes that despite the odds, I would walk away with a lucky golden ticket. After the numbers were drawn, I was overjoyed to find that the box of ten Opus X Lost City Lanceros was making its way to my door. Coming with an offer for a free DVD of the cigars’ namesake, I obtained my copy of the movie with the intent to watch it while smoking the first of ten. Setting up the laptop outside, with film and cigar in tow, I seated myself in the fading sunshine to enjoy my first Opus X.

Throughout each of our smoking lives, many of us set aside cigars that we label as special to be smoked on rare occasions. One such cigar that repeatedly tops many lists is the Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 77. Resembling a tooth because of its uniquely box pressed torpedo shape, this cigar is more commonly known as the Anejo “Shark”. Sought after by both lovers and collectors with fervor similar to the search for Fuente’s Opus X line, this is one cigar that I have been looking forward to trying for some time.

First of all, I would like to thank Damien from DutyFreeCubanCigars.com for providing these beauties for review. He is based in Grand Cayman which gives him access to some rare Cuban and non-Cuban smokes, including the Opus X cigars.

The word alone makes my mouth water. I remember my previous experience with an Opus X and it seems like its strong and rich flavor is still somewhere near. Will this Belicoso xXx, also known as the Power Ranger, be on par with the Rare Estate Reserve or will it disappoint? I had absolutely no idea when I took this cigar from the humidor yesterday evening to dry-box it during the night. The weather is excellent, I am sitting outside in a park and getting ready to begin my short journey to the Dominican Republic.

Today we've got the first dual review in our series of 6.

Joe K: Early on in my cigar smoking, Arturo Fuente’s Hemingway line sparked my interest with its diverse shapes and shades coupled with consistently positive mentions among various members of the cigar community. Making it a point to acquire and try at least one of each vitola, I began with the highly acclaimed Work of Art Maduro. Finding it enjoyable, I wasted no time in taking the second step along that journey with the equally reputed Short Story Natural.

Stephen: It was the first nice weekend of the year. Temps in the 70s and I was heading to the park for a walk. I thought what a perfect time to try another one of these fantastic cigars. I have smoked 3 in total.
