Here is all you need to know about Cuban cigars: a brand-by-brand discussion of the manufacturers, as well as frank assessments of current products; the island's tumultuous history; the industry's evolution from small-time farming through Castro's collectivization; and the labor and workmanship that go into both agriculture and manufacturing.There is no cigar more premium than a Cuban. With world attention once again focused on Cuba, speculation abounds about the future of one of Communism's last strongholds-and about the possibility of normalization in the coming years, perhaps allowing American smokers to enjoy habanos legally for the first time since 1962.

The taste of cigars is much more complex than cigarettes. The majority of all cigars are created by wrapping three different layers of tobacco leaves together. High quality cigars usually contain long leaves of nicotine as the filler, although they may also contain a combination of scraps. This results in subtle variations, different textures, and complex flavors. Cigarettes, on the other hand, are mass-produced and generally only contain one type of tobacco. Cigars also come in an incredible variety of flavors. The dedicated cigar aficionado can find chocolate, vanilla, apple, and even coffee-flavored cigars! Discover everything you need to know by grabbing a copy of this ebook today.
