Obsidian White Noise vs AF Hemingway

tabakotabako Washington StatePosts: 365 ✭✭✭
Having a local debate over the merits of the two sticks. My favorite B&M always seems to have the Hemingways, but they ran out! That resulted in trying an Obsidian based on a recommendation. Now we are embroiled in the argument over which is better and I thought I'd throw it out there to the band of brothers for discussion.

    That all depends on the person's tastes.
    While I would say the Hemmingway hands down, I love cameroon wrappers.
    But the next person could say Obsidian, if that is the style of cigar they prefer.

    If you are talking construction, draw and presentation, I still have to give it to Fuente. 
    Just my opinion.

    I would agree, the Cameroon wrapper gives the Hemingway a rich finish that the Obsidian lacks and it's hard to beat AM for quality of construction. I will say that, though totally different in character, the Obsidian is loaded with interesting flavor. In the end, we have agreed to disagree here!

    Hemingway.

    Especially a maduro Hemingway, but even the regular Cameroon gets my vote over Obsidian.  Didn't like it's original, and though the White Noise hits my wheelhouse more, it still seems like I'm smoking from the ash end of the stick to me.
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Hemingway, all the way. I've had one Obsidian, which was okay, but the Cameroon and Maduro wrappers of the Hemingway, plus their generally smaller ring gauges, makes them immensely memorable.

    Hemmingway.... For sure. Its one of my favorites. BUT I did enjoy the Obsidian and have enjoyed it many times afterwards.

    Dang. I'm gonna have to try the Hemmingway. LOL. So little time so many different smokes..  LOL. 

    I like the Obsidian. It's one I classify as pretty good, and can be had for a song.  I won't load up on them but will put a 5'er in when I run out.

    Decided I might as well smoke a couple Hemingways just to be sure I really liked them as much as I thought I did and I was right- I do  :D Now I'm out and I have to order more.
