The only reason I read this was curiosity. I found it at the public library near a book on the shelf that I was actually seeking. I figured I'd check it out and read it.

From reading the book, I learned about a broad range of brands from those that are so-so to the ones with old histories and pedigrees. ...more

This was a fun and informative little read. It described in detail the complex and expensive processes involved with premium cigar creation from start to finish. It also helped clarify some confusing aspects of the cigar world, for instance, the difference between the often conflated type and shade of cigar wrappers.

That said, I felt strongly obligated to knock it down a star due to it's sinful exclusion of Padrón in the cigar brands section. ;)

A small book and the reviews are now outdated, but the background information and general impressions are still valuable. Also like it because it outside of the history itself, it also covers Cuban and well as non-Cuban cigars in the reviews.
