Cigar Aficionado Magazine Archives
The visceral rage of boxer Jake LaMotta. The calculated calm of young Vito Corleone. The bombast of gangster Al Capone. The shrewd, dry humor of father-in-law Jack Byrnes. Each of these characters and so many more have been brought to life memorably by Robert De Niro.
In a comprehensive interview with Cigar Aficionado editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken, Robert De Niro reveals a range that goes even beyond his on-screen flexibility. Plus, we look at the man through his greatest roles, his business success and his contributions to the cinematic wielding of cigars. Additionally, we pay homage to mobsters in the movies, go inside Donald Trump's golf empire and explore Bourbon's big-time revival. And as always, we rate a plethora of premium cigars across six sizes: Churchill, corona gorda, figurado, lonsdale, panetela, and robusto. All this and more.
