Didn't know that you were partial to the Hemingways...any size in... I like it for its big
particular ? And how do you like the Don Carlos line ?
flavour. It's a bit like my car -- not too demanding,
smooth but with the power when I want it.
Hemingways are made by Fuente in the Dominican Republic. They are all
perfectos (pointed on both ends), and IMO are excellent cigars on a par with
many Cubans. You can't get much better than a 6x47 Hemingway Signature -
Don Carlos are made from tobacco aged a longer time (so it is claimed) and
are all figuardos (pointed on the head only). Both are distinguished by a
black edge on the band. (see www.cigarfamily.com/ )
Both have nearly perfect wrapppers and offer a smooth and complex flavor.
They are excellent cigars in nearly every way.
A 25-count box of Don Carlos #3 is about $175, and a similarly sized
Hemingway (Signature, 6x47) is about the same.
There was a time when Fuente products were considered waaaaay overpriced.
They aren't cheap now, but so many makers now have introduced cigars that
are even more straopherically overpriced that it makes Fuente look more
reasonable. If I had $175 to spend, I'd certainly spend it on these Fuente
products before I'd get some "selection reserva limitada bullshit" cigar
from any other maker.
