Cigars of the Worldby Julian Holland, Neil Millington
Cigar smoking today is enjoying something of a renaissance. Championed by the rich and famous in the world of politics and showbusiness, the demand for exquisite handmade cigars has never been greater. Like a fine wine or good malt, rare examples can make stupendous prices at auction as avid devotees scour the globe to find suitable additions for their collections.
The cigar industry is so vast that to the uninitiated, choosing a brand can seem totally bewildering. A plethora of cigars in all shapes, sizes and colours from all around the world vie for your attention. Cigars of the World helps you rise out of this confusion, taking you on a comprehensive tour of the cigar-producing world. This comprehensive guide charts the cigar industry in each cigar-producing country, and features all the most famous varieties. The book includes colour photographs of the major brands, including the famous Cuban Bolivar and Cohiba, together with the history behind each variety, at-a-glance charts on the sizes available, and advice about identifying the correct proportions and appearance of the best examples. The book includes the cigar-producing strongholds of Cuba and the Dominican Republic, as well as the smaller scale producers, from Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico and Nicaragua, to the Philippines, Europe and the United States. As an introduction to the diverse range of quality cigars available world-wide, and as a comprehensive reference book for every connoisseur, Cigars of the World is an indispensable guide for every discerning smoker of hand-rolled tobacco.
