The aficionado’s guide to the best Cuban cigars in the world.
The Cuban Cigar Handbook is an in-depth look at the complete history of Cuban cigars, with fascinating detours into stories of celebrated cigar aficionados from Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway to Rudyard Kipling and Winston Churchill, advice on the best Cuban rum to pair with a cigar, plus dynamic profiles of growers, hand-rollers, and producers.
In this full-colour guide every element of cigar production is described in detail, from the types of tobacco used and how to choose your first humidor to the history of Cuba’s cigar industry. There is an unrivalled guide to the brands of cigar that available—from the Cohiba, Fidel Castro’s personal favourite, to the Montecristo— along with tasting notes to help the reader fully experience the pleasures of a good cigar.
Cuban cigars are as much an art form as a pleasure and this special collector’s edition of the definitive guide to over 200 varieties of cigar is a perfect gift for connoisseurs.
Contributors include Matteo Speranza, editor of the Cuban Cigars blog; Carlo Devito, author of over 15 books and Denis Toulouse, founder of the Cigar Inspector blog.
