The Ultimate Cigar Book #Giveaway! (2 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 12/6 #HolidayGiftGuide #Cigars



Don’t Give Him a Tie He’ll Never Wear—The Newest Edition of The Ultimate Cigar Book Unveils a 150-Year-Old Holiday Tradition That Will Last All Year!

Ever since the 1850s, when cigars became popular in America, they have been associated with the holidays—a time for relaxing and rejoicing with friends. And what better way to celebrate than with a hand-rolled stogie and a favorite libation? It calms the nerves, aids digestion, and stimulates conversation.

“A single cigar makes a perfect stocking stuffer, and a gaily wrapped box of cigars under the tree is the adult equivalent of getting an electric train set when you were a boy,” says Richard Carleton Hacker, author of the new fourth edition of The Ultimate Cigar Book (Skyhorse Publishing).

Because cigars were originally reserved for the wealthy, they became a symbol of success and have since evolved into the perfect Yuletide gift for men (and women) from all walks of life. “You don’t have to be a millionaire to feel like one, when you’re smoking a premium cigar,” says Hacker.

The Ultimate Cigar Book describes virtually every cigar in the world and is full of facts and trivia, such as Thomas R. Marshall’s famous quote, “What this country really needs is a good five cent cigar,” or Mark Twain’s proclamation that “If I can’t smoke in Heaven, then I shall not go!” The book also compares Cuban cigars with those from other countries, including the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua, and answers a multitude of questions encompassing cigar history, making, and storage. Keep the band on or take it off? Can you humidify a cigar that has dried out? How do you clip and light a cigar? All are answered in The Ultimate Cigar Book. There is even a chapter on pairing cigars with single malts, bourbons, and cognacs.

Indeed, The Ultimate Cigar Book is the ultimate gift for the ultimate cigar smoker this holiday season. Available online and at your local book retailers.

  1. I have a friend that smokes cigars that would probably love it. I might want to read it first just because I don't know anything about cigars.
