In the January/February 2017 Cigar Aficionado
Just when Arnold Schwarzenegger seemed to have done it all, the champion bodybuilder turned surprisingly versatile actor turned two-term governor of California is replacing Donald Trump on “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” In February's Cigar Aficionado, we catch up with Arnold in California where he smokes cigars and drives a tank. Plus, we announce our Top 25 Cigars of 2016 as well as a plethora of best cigar buys and new releases, take a look at what the PGA Tour would have been like without Tiger Woods, break down the new rules on Cuban cigars and explore new trends in large-ring-gauge cigars. Also, we rate 83 cigars across six sizes: Churchills, corona gordas, figurados, grandes, miscellaneous and robustos. ON NEWSSTANDS NOW.
