The amazing quality, both visually and textually, is almost overwhelming. I can't think of a reason not to give it five stars. The excellence of the book itself, as well as the attention to detail and completeness contained within it is unsurpassed. That rich detail in the descriptions of the path each of the marks has taken along with the tasting and aging notes are so evocative that you can almost smell the tobacco. No expense was spared in the putting together of this work and it shows from cover to cover.
The only drawback is that the author is focused on aged cigars, and this book was written on the border between the Habanos of old and the updated Altadis Habanos. So much of the flavor profiles and descriptions of the marks and vitolas do not apply to anything the average smoker might encounter at a shop.
This should not stop anyone from obtaining this work, as it is a testament to the history and quality of Habanos and the passion it evokes in those who love them.
