The resurgence and dramatic growth of premium cigars is a phenomenon almost no one expected, but millions are enjoying. A natural leader for this movement is Joel Sherman, son of legendary tobacconist Nat Sherman. Often called America's first family of tobacco, the Shermans have for many years been a fixture on Fifth Avenue, their store serving as both retail outlet and "gentlemen's club", providing smoke rooms and private reserve humidors for the rich and famous, including Milton Berle, David Letterman, Bill Cosby, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among many others. And now, Joel, who entered the business at the age of sixteen, has drawn on his forty years of experience to create this definitive guide that explores the different cigar categories, cigar etiquette, history, storage and more.
A wonderful companion for both the cigar novice and aficionado, Nat Sherman's A Passion for Cigars is destined to become the cigar smoker's most indispensable accessory (except the humidor, of course).
