    personally, i dont think it is anything special. it looks cool and it is rare but know many cigars at 1/2 the price tag that taste way more interesting. there are people out there that would pay way more than $17 for one of those. i am not one of those people.

    I've never tried it. But if I came across it, I'd probably bite. I'm an AF ****. I had a Hemingway Signature Maduro the other day that was out of this world.

    Kuzi's spot on. Looks nice but I've had a lot of them and have many more and while they are tasty not worth the price. I was able to pick up a box of these for 200 and some change when I got a box of the the woam's and hands down I prefer the woam's. why? well the burn is much better. The BTL is hella expensive when they get in stock at a lot of places. I've seen them for 30 plus. 17 isn't bad and while I say try anything once I wouldn't buy the stick for anything more than 12 or so bucks. Sometimes 14 but 17 isn't too bad. Like kuzi said there are better ones out there. the work of arts are nice and aren't too expensive. The maduros aren't as bad either if you can find them. There's another one that is of the same shape but I can't think of the name. It's pretty cheap and tasty.

    All of the Hemingways are the same shape. The Work of Art, Between the Lines, and Short Story, and Best Seller are all close in size (4.something, and a ring between 49 and 60... btl might be smaller ring. Can't remember...)
    I personally love the Hemis, and have never had a bad one.
  • As a Fuente fan I have to say that these are ok. Not great. However $17 is much cheaper than I paid. I think I paid approx $30 and only bought maybe 5. Not impressed at all. Even $17 is expensive.

    The Hemingway Work of Art Maduro is the same size and just about as rare (I think), and IMO is a lot better smoke, not to mention usually around $6-7 cheaper than the Between the Lines. But that's just my opinion.
