Book Description

March 17 2009
The first book in this two-volume boxed set details the history and traditions of the cigar, from tobacco harvesting to the significance of the cigar ring and how to detect a counterfeit cigar, followed by a practical buyer’s guide listing shops, clubs, websites, and useful addresses. The second book takes the reader on a tasting tour of one hundred individual cigars, exploring the sensual elements that make a truly superb cigar. Each cigar is presented in a concise table, graded on a scale of ten based on criteria such as flavor, aroma, and combustion quality, and accompanied by a lifesize photograph of the featured cigar.

By Dr. Dean Al - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I find this book to be invaluable for selecting cigars to match food, wines, cognac and time of day. I have been smoking and learning about cigars for 55 years. This two volume set is the best I have found.
It is handsomely presented and written by Gerard Pere et Fils, a noteworthy cigar retailer in Geneva Switzerland.

This book covers a large amount of info on cigars historical and present plus the best in the world (past and now). I was just starting out in cirgars and this book has helped tremendously with ideas and tips for smoking, storing and all sorts of other vital things. The tips alone have saved my cigar collection and $$$$$ from being wasted. Recommend to all as the book has things for the beginner to the avid collector.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cigars: Revised and Updated Sept. 1 2009
By James D. Leister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Decent value for the price and some useful information. I was looking for more in depth discussion on cigar blending and how to interpret blends vs cigar flavor. I need some guidance to help me buy the right cigar for my taste when trying new brands and blends. The second part of the book was all Cuban cigars which are off limits to us in the US. Good book for my collection - I'm glad I bought it.

Beautiful book. It's a real 'coffee-table' book. One you need to take your time to read. Beautiful addition to your own library if you are a cigar concineur.
