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 this issue.
We visited the cigar scene in Hong Kong for you and put together a list of cigar hotspots. We also report about the best places on Majorca and in Beverly Hills for passionados to smoke, stay, and eat. Visitors to Las Vegas will find out where the top locations are for cigar smokers in Sin City.
In the Humidor Corner Marc André writes about the influence of various storage conditions on the aroma of cigars and Nick Hammond visits the basement of the legendary Davidoff of London cigar shop where cigars selected for their scarcity and collector’s value slumber stacked from floor to ceiling.
