We at Cut The Cap love nothing more than taking time to light up a cigar and settle in with some quality reading about cigars and the industry, so we were very excited when we heard Assouline were releasing a new volume in their Ultimate Collection around cigars called The Impossible Collection of Cigars.
Packed tighter than an box-pressed cigar box, the book is brimming with the most remarkable cigars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries from the most prestigious makers.
As any cigar smoker knows, the craft that goes into making a cigar is just as important as the smoke itself, so the Impossible Collection of Cigars is a bid for readers to journey to the fabled Cuban tobacco farms, get up close and personal with the torcedores (master cigar rollers) as they discover the world’s most commendable and coveted cigars.
The book however not just ventures into the Cuban cigar business but also considered the differences of new world cigars such as Nicaragua’s Padrón to Dominican Republic’s Arturo Fuente and Davidoff of Geneva, Honduras’ Rocky Patel to the Bahamas’ Graycliff.
This hand-bound, oversized luxury edition, featuring hand-tipped and authentic cigar bands and presented in a traditional dress trade cigar box is a must-have for the collection of any sincere cigar aficionado.
Aaron Sigmond is an award-winning publisher, editor and author who has traversed the world of cigars both personally and professionally for over thirty years.
In that time he was the founding editor of Smoke magazine and The Cigar Report, as well as contributing cigar editor for Playboy and the author of Playboy: The Book of Cigars. Sigmond also served as the consulting creative director of General Cigar Co. Sigmond’s previous book for Assouline was Bulova: A History of Firsts (2018), so he has a pretty impressive career in the cigar business and now brings his knowledge together for The Impossible Collection of Cigars.
He also has a pretty impressive Instagram profile!
The book contains over 230 pages with over 100 illustrations all hand bound in a limited edition wooden box to give it that luxury cigar feel.
The Impossible Collection of Cigars is available for £775 and is available here.
Be the envy of all your cigar smoker friends when you place this on your coffee table, so get your hands on one before they are gone.
