I’ve been a long time Arturo Fuente fan. Until this past week I had yet to try the Gran Reserva Hemingway Short Story. This is a fantastic cigar for golf because of its size.  Easy to pack.  Easy to manage.  Doesn’t last too long.  Oh, and the flavor is the best part.  It is very tasty medium cigar, not too strong but does pack a lot of taste in a small package.


I enjoyed my first golf round of 2015 with this cigar.  I was 1-over par for holes which the cigar was in play, and 8-over par on non-cigar holes.  You do the math.  Proof that this cigar cuts strokes off your golf score!

I also enjoyed one with the lovely bride and a good friend who was in from out of town.  All of the testers give this one high grades.

I wasn’t able to find this specific cigar on their site but these did come from my friends at Cigars City.  I’m sure stock changes all the time, or perhaps I was being a bonehead and not looking in the right place.
Pricing on these cigars can be under $5.00 each.

    Same smoke, different length, try the Best Seller and the Masterpiece. All are excellent smokes!
