Cigars: Revised and Updated

The first book in this two-volume boxed set details the history and traditions of the cigar, from tobacco harvesting to the significance of the cigar ring and how to detect a counterfeit cigar, followed by a practical buyer’s guide listing shops, clubs, websites, and useful addresses. The second book takes the reader on a tasting tour of one hundred individual cigars, exploring the sensual elements that make a truly superb cigar. Each cigar is presented in a concise table, graded on a scale of ten based on criteria such as flavor, aroma, and combustion quality, and accompanied by a lifesize photograph of the featured cigar.
