As well as numerous news items about new launches, and events all around the globe, our writers offer up a concentrated charge of firsthand impressions from the cigar world, and in-depth information also in our new issue.
The founder of the world-renowned brand Padrón is considered a living legend in the cigar industry. For our cover story, we spoke to him about the most moving events in his life, as well as his upcoming autobiography. Memorable Moments in My Life does not merely document the life of the patriarch and thus a story about realizing the American dream – it is also a piece of contemporary history.
We’ve been on the road a lot and have explored the cigar scene in Kuala Lumpur for you and explored Chinese cigar production. What’s more, we give traveling passionados in-depth information about where to find the best places in Buenos Aires, Nashville, Chicago, Santiago (Chile), and Prague to sit back and enjoy.
Again, we have smoked and reviewed 60 cigars in blind tastings for you.
