This new book on cigars by Nick Hammond is the ideal stocking - filler for any cigar aficionado or enthusiast this Christmas. It charts a quarter of a century of his life as a roving reporter and among the 167 pages of entertaining text you will find a compendium of weird, poignant and poetic stories about cigars embracing a colourful array of locations from Cuba (of course) to the South China Sea, Tunisia and South Africa.
A thoroughly good read - made all the more enjoyable if you happen to have a cigar to hand !
