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!
Appearance : [rating:4.5/5]
The rich toffee-hued Cameroon wrapper on this beautifully crafted perfecto possesses a light sheen and slight tooth. No prominent veins or seams are present, making the cigar feel satisfyingly smooth in the hand. The Hemingway Signature has a comfortable prelight draw despite the tightly pressed foot.
Construction : [rating:5/5]
Like most Fuente cigars, the construction of the Hemingway Signature is spot on. The entire body is evenly packed with only a slight give. From beginning to end this cigar burned astonishingly straight. Setting the cigar on an ashtray for a few minutes does not present a problem.
Flavor : [rating:4/5]
A smooth and well balanced mix of cedar, vanilla, nutmeg, and sweet tobacco is immediately noticeable. The short and slightly dry finish consists of leather with a hint of pepper that leaves the palate slightly warm. A subtle aroma of cherry is present in the smoke. This creamy cigar is not overly complex but has a pleasing balance of flavors that never become tiring or monotonous.
Value : [rating:4.5/5]
The Arturo Fuente Hemingway’s promising attributes are easily worthy of the moderate price – especially considering how much of a consistent performer it is.
Overall Rating : [rating:4.5/5]
This beautiful mild-medium bodied cigar is nearly free of flaws with a light and creamy flavor profile that appeals to a wide variety of smokers. Highly recommended to new smokers and seasoned aficionados alike.

Along with the Opus X and Anejos, the Hemingway line is one of my favorite Arturo Fuente smokes.
Never had any draw, construction nor burn problems with these. And since these are usually more readily available and cheaper than the Opus X and Anejo, I see them as a very value friendly cigar.
For what you pay, you get a complex and wonderful cigar. I have smoked cigars much more expensive than the hemingway signature and have been disappointed.

Very good review of this great cigar. I usually have this vitola in my humidor and I buy the Sungrown version of this fine cigar, when its available.
