Flavors of cocoa and a medley of peppery spices, including black pepper, white pepper, red pepper, and cinnamon. There's also some coffee in there, most notably on the finish. Construction appears to be excellent, but it seemed to burn a bit hot, which, when coupled with the inherent spiciness of the filler, was at times a bit of a challenge for me. Lasted for about 45 minutes.

Arturo Fuente Hemingway Best Seller5 Star RatingSparklePony9/15/2014 6:24 PM
An unbelievable smoke.  I didn't really know what to expect from this short figurado, but every inch was the apotheosis of cigar smoking.  I know, I know, that's a little over the top, but this cigar was *that* good.

The pre-light smell was of sweet aged tobacco with a little spice.  The draw was very nice and it had a classic Cameroon flavor: spicy and sweet.  

1/3 It took a second for the cigar to warm up, but from the first puff it was smooth and sweet.  The overall flavor was sweetness, smooth tobacco, and orange zest.  The orange was muted, but it was certainly there.  There was a tiny bit of spice that was quite pleasant.

2/3 As the cigar gets fatter it gets more complex.  The sweetness remains, but there's aged wood, a touch of cedar, cream, and the slightest hint of vanilla.  

3/3 The flavors get slightly overwhelmed by the heat of the cigar, but the smoke was never hot, it was never harsh, and the sweetness remained.  

This is among the best cigars I've ever tasted and I can't recommend it enough.  It's a solid 97 and well worth the relatively modest price.
La Riqueza No. 4 Hermoso (box press)2.5 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 4:49 PM
Tastes of spice, licorice and leather.  An oaky finish.  A reddit recommendation, I thought this would be more.  CT broadleaf and pete johnson should be more.
Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 602.5 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 4:35 PM
(Extra) Firm stick of really dark complexion.  Tastes of rich spice that is accompanied by tar throughout.  Sweet coffee develops but the nasty tar taste really takes this stick down.  Another stick where the buildup/exclusivity killed it.
Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story3.5 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 4:32 PM
Short guy with an easy to light  knob on the end.  Draws fine.  Does not generate a lot of smoke.  First third.   Notes of earth and leather. No pepper at the end of a draw.  Gettig sweeter in the second third.  A very solid smoke.
Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story Maduro3.5 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 4:30 PM
Always a good looking stick that burns perfectly every time.  Tastes of earth and leather, with a light sweetness that pleases everyone.  Maybe some salt and white pepper as it goes on.  It never amazes me with intense flavors though.
Illusione Rothchilde4 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 4:12 PM
Pretty stick for the price.  Starts with earthy tones that blend nicely with wood and floral flavors.  Second half was boringly more of the same, but that isn't the worst thing in the world.  Burns nicely and always reminds you that you are smoking a steal.

CAO Brazilia Amazon Basin3 Star Ratingkristofn9/15/2014 3:58 PM
Solid stick with a great appearance (obviously the band is cool), but its not very oily.  First tastes are really like jungle: wood, wet leaves and earth.  Pepper starts coming in but so does sourness that I wasn't a fan of.  A tiny bit of cocoa goes in and out.  

Definitely like the Brazilia, which for me was a let-down as well.

Punch Bareknuckle Belicoso4.5 Star Ratingaschroyer9/15/2014 12:16 PM
Got this stick in a cigar pass, as I picked it out from the bunch. Looked excellent before I lit it up, great looking cigar. When I first lit it up the taste overwhelmed me, it was full-bodied with heavy woody and spicy flavors. Then once I knew what I was smoking the flavors really excited me and I thoroughly enjoyed this smoke and really look forward to getting another one. excellent full-bodied cigar if you like woody flavors with a hint of coffee.
Torano Circa 1995 Dominican Selection Robusto4 Star Ratingbmac77549/15/2014 11:06 AM
This cigar has a nice golden brown Connecticut shaded wrapper, a big band near the cap and another wrapped around the foot.  The cap cuts very clean and effortlessly, and the cold draw is perfect.

The foot lights up quickly, almost too quick as it blackened the rim.  It has a nutty cedar, some pepper, and a dark roast coffee flavor that is the same all the way to the nub.  The smoke is thick and creamy, and leaves behind a thick dark gray ash.

This scored high due to the fact of the budget price these are set for.  Would make a good mix in the everyday smokes.
