The second, lovingly designed edition of the reference work “The Cigar, from Soil to Soul – 2nd Edition” by tobacco and cigar expert Didier Houvenaghel has been available since April.
“The Cigar, from Soil to Soul” now includes 318 pages in two hardcover volumes with eleven chapters and more than 100 beautiful drawings. It is the result of nearly 20 years of work and research, including two years of almost full-time work. “This book is also the result of working with a fantastic editor, layout artist, painter and printer,” says Didier Houvenaghel.
Cigar Journal readers can now get a 10 percent discount – just order on the websites www.editionsdumyosotis.com or www.cigarthinker.com with the promotional code CIGARJOURNAL.
The full price is EUR 150.00 for the Black Edition and EUR 400.00 for the Limited Bamboo Edition.
The comprehensive work discusses all relevant topics of tobacco (history, terroir, fermentation etc.), and cigar (blending, tasting, enjoying, storage, aging, faulty cigars, tasting training).
Anyone who is serious about the field of cigar should have read the book – and those who are well informed will still find valuable references and can refer to it when they have questions.
