Amazon.com: HASH(0x8b5dadf8) out of 5 stars 3 reviews
8 of 8 people found the following review helpful
By Marcel Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
From Nicaragua to Italy, I have tried different blends, sizes and manufactures. However, I always come back to the Cuban cigar. Flavours are always prevalent and various: cedar, wood, caramel, apple. When I worked in a Cuban cigar store this book was thrust into my lap by the manager. Read it, he said. Read it through, then read it again. I learned the maturation process, the curing, the blending. All of this in the Aging section, a great beginning to the rest of the book. Dynamic. Min Ron Nee, in all his experience takes us into the country of Cuba, its cigars, its history. I learned so much from this book. I hear an updated version is in the works. How they can make this better is beyond me, however I am looking forward to the experience.

HASH(0x8a93c948) out of 5 stars THE BEST OF ALL 6 Dec. 2012
By Site7000 - Published on Amazon.com
Don't let the bland cover fool you. I own about 20 books on Cuban cigars, including all the best ones, but this one is the best of them all. I was lucky enough to order mine when they first came out and it was somewhere in the $50-80 range. Certainly the current price of $500+ is eye-watering. But it's not only the best of it's kind, it's truly an awesome book in every way. The depth of scholarship, the range of topics, the details and the incredible photography make it a masterpiece. I also strongly recommend "The New Connoisseur's Guide to Havana Cigars" by Gerard Pere & Fils and "The Havana Cigar: Cuba's Finest" by Charles del Todesco." All of these books are out of print, but still available on Amazon.

HASH(0x8ac3bf0c) out of 5 stars Truly Encyclopedic 7 May 2011
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
If you have the slightest passion for cigars, Cuba, or history this tome (and this hefty works qualifies as a tome) is not to be missed.

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.
