The title story of the 2012 Autumn issue focuses on the women in the cigar trade. Manufacturers, experts and marketing specialists – our portraits show that the world of cigars has long ceased to be a male bastion.
In Collectors’ Corner, Colin Ganley writes about his comparison tasting of the Cuban Ediciónes Limitadas released to date, while Habanos expert Simon Chase surveys the last decade of Cuban cigars. In Habanos Corner, we tell the history of the Fonseca brand and its extravagant founder Francisco E. Fonseca, and we investigate the cigar scene in Madeira and the German state of Rhineland Palatinate. The 225th and the 125th anniversaries of JJ Fox and Gurkhas respectively are the occasion for a retrospective.
