Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story Maduro


Limited to 1,000 boxes and only available at select retailers the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story Maduro has been a cigar that has eluded our Cigar Review Index for six years. Honestly when the e-mail came in asking for us to review this cigar I honestly thought we had but after scouring the site, it dawned on me that we’ve overlooked it. The Short Story Maduro features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with the binder and filler from the Dominican Republic in a 4×49 figurado frame. For a cigar that is limited to 1,000 boxes its a challenge to find these for close to MSRP. Luckily for me, the folks at W.Curtis Draper don’t gouge their customers and these were obtained for $5.95 each before taxes.

Video runs close to 9 minutes and while not the most complex or challenging cigar from the stables of Arturo Fuente, the Short Story Maduro is smooth, balanced and filled with dark, sweet earthy flavors at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Who could ask for more? Well, personally I could ask that whoever rolled mine maybe wipe the excess pectin off their hands so I don’t end up with a big ole fingerprint on my wrapper. I know, its a cosmetic issue but one that I’m sure could’ve been avoided. There is a refined level of quality that is synonymous with the Fuente brand (regardless of price) so thats why the pectin fingerprint thing annoys me a bit. Fair? Unfair?

  1. Jerry as you are well aware I ran into the same fingerprint issue, so I ran it through the FBI database and it came back a perfect match with both Brian and Charlies DNA…. did they reproduce again??? hahah Great little stick

  2. Ohhh, dried pectin, huh? Is THAT what that is?? Mom, don’t worry about the stain on the hand towel, that’s just DRIED pectin…

  3. I’m not sure that I could smoke that cigar, you are a brave man. The cigar sounds like I would like it,thanks for the info.

  4. For you military folks in southern California, around the Camp Pendleton. You can find these at about the same price and no sales tax. i like to smoke one on the way home. It usually lasts until i get home. p.s. you could find the whole line of Fuente and bellow MSRP and no taxes

  5. Jerry I have been on short story kick lately, and have noticed a lot of excess pectin on the naturals as well. Keep up the good work, I really enjoy your guys site.

  6. Jerry- the last 3 short story cigars I smoked had fingerprints as well. They were not maduros.
    Thanks for the review.

  7. You’re telling me that they only made 25,000 of these? Forget just buying a few at a time, I better start buying them by the box!
