Product Description As we live in the 'golden age of cigar making', there is more to know and appreciate than ever before. The Tobacconist Handbook exists as a resource for lovers of luxury tobacco to enhance our knowledge, appreciation, and quality of life. Great cigars and pipes help us ruminate, decompress, gather our thoughts and emotions revitalize ourselves, and savor our time. Furthermore, through education you will learn that luxury tobacco products are used by choice and not out of habit. They are products created by great craftsmen and women who honor thousands of years of traditions and history. Great cigars and pipe tobaccos take years to grow, nurture, age, blend, and construct, yet their destiny is to return to dust; it is an extraordinary transformational and artistic journey that yields priceless moments and memories for the aficionado.
