Short smokes

What's better?
Oliva Special G?
Or Hemingway Short Story?

    Having just had a Hemingway Signature and not being a fan of any of the Oliva blends (blasphemer!!) I'd go Hemingway for sure. Even the signature was a 90 minute smoke though.

    Just had the Best Seller over the weekend, and I loved it!

    Just went out and got one of each over my lunch break. Time to do a side-by-side comparison.

    I love them both. Almost equally....gotta go with the Hemi tho.

    The Hemingway is a no brainer. It's expensive though. The G I need to revisit sometime. So far I've not liked anything Oliva except the V.

    Short story all the way....Special G is you are short on cash.

    Wow. Kind of surprised no one has taken the G. Seems like there are usually some pretty hardcore Oliva advocates around here.

    I LOVE the G... especially the maduro. however, i feel the Hemmingway is just a better cigar. its hard to compete with the short story. that vitola is one of the best things Fuente has ever done.

    I tried both this past weekend and enjoyed both but I have to favor the short story

    Ive only had the special G, and wasnt impressed at all.

    I smoked the G last night and wasn't all that impressed. I didn't think the flavor was very complex at all. Might do the Hemingway tonight or I might let it sit for a few more days. I'm working on some humi issues right now.
