There is so much expertise at play in the perfection of a cigar.
Savouring his cigar is for the connoisseur a very special moment. The anticipation of the pleasure to come: a pleasure which the ritual of tasting heightens for every one of his senses. On every occasion as he performs this ritual, it is a process of discovery.
The beauty of the object, its strength, its mystique and its richness of flavour have given it an allmost mythical status. Understanding its history can only add to the pleasure of the cigar-lover, and in analysing the flavours which make up the smoke which brings him such a deep sense of peace and desire for contemplation.
Centuries of tradition and research have formed the cigar in this way so that the tobacco will burn, gently and evenly with a light bluish smoke and a captivating aroma.
There is in this knowledge acquired and handed down, a search for perfection. The same path followed by the wine grower, the perfumer, and every craftsman who aims at the mastery of their craft.
This page is dedicated to the scrutinisers of the cigar passion. Our goal on this page is to built day after day the most complete encyclopedia of cigars.
Just give us time.
