For decades Ernest Hemingway battled depression, insecurity and alcoholism that tormented him until his death in 1961. As one of the most influential and imitated prose writes of the 20th century Hemingway’s suicide was a tragic inverse to the celebration of a great man.
For those of you from the United States who were around back in the 1980s these were some extremely lean years for the cigar industry. For those who love figurados, or shaped cigars, the situation was especially bleak. The perfecto, a classic shape cigar which tapers on both ends of the cigar, had gone completely away. It was the revival of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway series of cigars in 1983 that brought them back to life.
Carlos Fuente Sr. found some old cigar molds in an Ybor City, Florida, warehouse, brought them to Fuente’s factory in the Dominican Republic and personally taught his master roller how to make the intricately shaped smoke. Even those completely ignorant about the difficulty of making a cigar by hand will recognize that the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic has a supermodel’s curves. The sublime balance of an ultra-thin Cameroon wrapper pairs exquisitely with Fuente’s filler and binder blend, thus resulting in a complex smoke belting of orange peel, cedar and coffee. If you’ve never smoked an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic cigar, you’re missing out on one of the world’s premier smoking experiences.
