Spring Edition 2008 – City Portrait: Fumar En Madrid

Cover-Spring-2008 Officially it’s called ”The Non-smokers Protection Act” for Germany, in reality it has become a bun. Frank Hidien looks at the state of affairs in the 16 Federal States.

Other Topics we deal with in the Spring Edition 2008 are tobacco cultivation in Ecuador, cigar hotspots in Madrid and Asia’s largest cigar company: The Pacific Cigar Company.

We are taking a look behind the scenes of superstar blenders, which are improving the quality of cigars around the world.

Cigar Journal also met the company boss from Kohlhase & Kopp, one of Germany’s biggest cigar importers.
