As some of you know, I’m not a huge “Fuente Fan”, but I have always had a soft spot for their Rosado wrappers.  The 858 Rosado is probably one of my favorite cigars of all time (seriously).  So when I heard these were soming out at the end of last year I was very excited.

Being that the Hemingway line is more full bodied than the regular line, I was concerned that the Rosado flavors would be obscured in a bolder blend.  In some ways I was right.  This cigar did not taste like the 858 Rosados.  It did not have the creamy leather, wood and cinnamon notes I love about the 858, but it was still good – just in a different way.  It was much spicier and had some clove and pepper notes that built throughout the smoke.  There was some roughness around the edges with this cigar, but I really enjoyed it.
