Cigars by Vahe Gerard
Book DescriptionDating back to the Arawak Indians who greeted Columbus on his arrival in the West Indies, the cigar is for many a symbol of all the good things in life. It is a luxury on a par with the finest of wines or a truly gastronomic meal, which it accompanies admirably. The first book in the Cigars boxed set explores the history and traditions of the cigar, from how cigar tobacco is grown and harvested, to the significance of the cigar ring and how to detect a counterfeit cigar. There is a practical buyer's guide listing shops and clubs completing the volume. The second book takes the reader on a taste tour of individual cigars, exploring the qualities of sight, smell, touch, and taste that make a truly great cigar. Eighty-eight cigars are tested in total: eighty from Cuba, undeniably the greatest cigar-producing country in the world, with the remaining examples drawn from the Canaries, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Each cigar is presented via a clear, easy-to-read table, giving it a mark out of ten based on criteria such as flavor, aroma, and quality of combustion. Each table is accompanied by an original, life-sized photograph of the cigar under examination. The handy presentation of the Cigars boxed set and the range of interesting facts presented makes this the perfect gift for anyone who revels in the aroma of a fine Monte Cristo or Romeo y Julieta.
