BCC Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Short Story
We know all too well what we can expect from the Spring weather in Portland- Most of the time we can’t tell April from December. We like to imagine that Arturo Fuente had us in mind when he developed the Short Story series. The short, perfecto-shaped stick, which burns in around 30-45 minutes, is the perfect smoke for a quick lunch.
With minimal veins, the wrapper is aesthetically pleasing and the compact construction makes it still more appealing. The exceptionally rolled stick comes to a nicely pointed foot, packed with Dominican tobacco that delivers an easy medium-strength smoke.
A cold draw revealed slight pepper blended delicately with notable sweetness on the palate. The Short Story lit without hesitation and gave way to a razor sharp, light ash that continued to stack tightly. As the stick evolved with each passing minute, dominant profiles of clean tobacco and sweet cocoa emerged. The cigar maintained a perfectly smooth and consistent draw through to the subtle citrus finish.
Although the Short Story is not the most complex of cigars, it is smooth, balanced and consistent. Pick one up at any Broadway Cigar location for the perfect accompaniment to a brief midday break.
