As we continue updating this web site we gather a lot of information from “Cigar Aficionado.com" and “The Cigar Insider” news letter, both by renowned publisher Marvin Shanken. Good deal of knowledge comes from our major suppliers’ web sites: “CigarFamily.com” (Arturo Fuente), “CigarWorld.com” (General Cigar), “AltadisUsa.Com” (Altadis Cigars), as well as “Davidoff.Com” and “AshtonCigar.Com”, “PerdomoCigars” by Nick Perdomo, “IndianTabac”by Rocky Patel, “CamachoCigars”, “PadillaCigars” and many, many more.
Lew Rothman’s “Cigar Almanac” was an invaluable resource for our work here ans is tremendous cigar knowledge is always a guiding light in our own efforts to better understand our industry.
“Cigar Magazine”, “Smoke” and “Cigar Aficionado” have always been very important sources for the people who labored in the creation of this web site, as well as a whole slew of text books such as the ‘Cigar Companion” by Shanken, “The ultimate Cigar Book” by Richard Hacker, Nat Sherman’s “A Passion for Cigars”, “The Gourmet Guide To Cigars” by Paul Garmerian and “Guia Epicure del Habano”.
Last but not least we’d like to mention here a variety of books about Cuba and its cigar industry, such as: “Accureala del Tabaco”, Habano the King” by Adriano Rius, “Havana Cigars” (Enzo Infante), and “Cuba” by Maertino Fagiuoli .
