Brand Profile

Carlos Fuente Jr. describes Arturo Fuente Hemingway cigars line:
"My grandfather always made Cuban Perfecto Cigars. Perfecto cigars were very, very, popular during the 1920's 30's and 40's. I remember when I was growing up in the factory, we made a lot of cigars that were Perfecto shaped. We made Perfectos by hand and as time went by there were less and less cigar makers rolling Perfectos, because these cigar makers were older, they retired, they passed away. It took a real master to make a true Cuban Perfecto cigar. The Perfectos my grandfather used to make were called Arturo Fuente Fancy Tales.

Ever since I was a child I was always fascinated with that shape, the old world, and the really difficult art of the craft that the Cuban Perfecto cigar represents. So, when we first came here to the Dominican Republic in 1980, I thought we should start making those cigar shapes again.  There was no one making Perfecto shapes.  My father was the only one that knew how to make those shaped cigars because he had been taught by my grandfather. He told me on one of the trips back to Ybor City he was going to try to find some of the old molds, but he didn't know where they were. He was sure he had kept them around, but he didn't know where, It was important to find the original molds because no one could make those molds, the gentleman that had made them for us, passed away. He never shared the secret of making the perfecto molds, he didn't pass it on and as a matter of fact, nobody wanted to make those cigars. There was no demand for that cigar. It was something that was lost. That's why it was important that we find the original molds and as fate would have it, my father found them in our Ybor City cigar factory. He then started practicing making the Cuban Perfecto shape. At first he just made a few for himself, working on the blend and so forth. After he was satisfied with the blend and the shape my father taught our master roller to make it, to make it for him. We used to make, maybe twenty cigars a day just for ourselves to smoke and enjoy.

That first cigar is what is known today as the Hemingway Signature cigar  6" x 47. The Hemingway Signature cigar was introduced in 1983 and that was the only shape available until around 1988 when we introduced the Hemingway Classic and the Hemingway Masterpiece. About that same time my father wanted to develop something totally different, unseen in cigars. So we started fooling around with a very short cigar, which was only for our own personal use. That cigar became the Hemingway Short Story.

Today we make all these fine cigars and also a few very limited shapes such as the Hemingway Work of Art, the Hemingway Best Seller, the Hemingway Untold Story and the Hemingway Between the Lines and others. These premium Dominican cigars are extremely difficult to make so our production is very small. Something special for our fellow cigar aficionados to enjoy.

The Hemingway cigars have a very warm place in my heart and in my memories. It is very pleasing for me to remember watching these cigars being made by my grandfather, and to think that these cigars are now made in our cigar factory in the Dominican Republic. That is very fulfilling. I hope that you enjoy Arturo Fuente Hemingway cigars and what they mean to myself and our family."

    This little baby is one of the best smokes I've had in a long time. Half way through my first box, and not a bad one yet. Tastes like nothing else I've had. Creamy and mild spices. Everybody should have a box or 2 of these!

    This is the best short cigar ever in my humble opinion. It's surprising how long it lasts for a short smoke. Top quality all the way. Perfect burn and draw with such a refined flavor. This is a regular for me when I have about a half hour or so. Hemingway is the best Cameroon out there.
