Front Cover

You might not know a Cohiba from a Corona. You might think a "hot" smoke is cool. You might even think biting the end off a five dollar Churchill is acceptable. But if you want to be a true student of the art of cigar smoking, you need The Cigar Enthusiast.

And it is an art -- like a fine wine, a hand-rolled cigar was created to be appreciated. The Cigar Enthusiast will tell you everything you need to know: from choosing the cigar that suits you best, to stocking a humidor, to lighting up. And soon -- as your appreciation and knowledge grow -- vice will turn to virtue. Smoking a cigar will be more than just a cocktail fascination. It will be a life-long passion.

The Cigar Enthusiast also includes: - a comprehensive rating guide the history of cigars what makes one tobacco better than another - the "mystique" (and myths) of Cubans - timeless smoking rituals
