Lately I haven’t been able to hangout at my local cigar shop or on the online cigar forums as much as I once was. Life happens and with a wife, a dog, and two small kids my free time is nearly non-existent. So I was very surprised when I walked into my local shop after being gone for a while to find these new Hemingways sitting in the humidor. I guess I have fallen a little out of touch. after letting sit in my humidor for the past month I am ready to spark this thing up as see what we have here.
I know very little about this version of the Hemingway. Is it a one time deal, a very rare release, or only somewhat rare like the Maduros? I have no idea but I bought a couple just in case I never see them again. Glad I did. the Rosado wrapper is a nice change-up for this smoke. The Signature Maduro is probably my all time favorite Hemingway Series cigar. I like this size and the Maduro wrapped version is just spectacular. The Rosado is nearly as good in a completely different way. It has a mild spice with a touch of cinnamon in there, all stacked on top of a core of leather and wood. I even picked up some subtle flashes of what I’d describe as applewood at times. It is a smooth medium body smoke and a real treat.
