In the March/April 2017 Cigar Aficionado
The multitasking comedian/author/television host Steve Harvey maintains a go-go schedule. In April's Cigar Aficionado, Harvey talks returning to the Miss Universe pageant despite his fabulous flub, collecting fine cigars and his meeting with President Trump. Plus, we take a tour of South Africa’s golfing delights, sit down with Fox News' rising star Bret Baier, and recount the story of James Donovan, the American who negotiated the release of hundreds of prisoners held in Cuba's prisons and opened the door to diplomacy between the two nations. Also, we rate 81 cigars across six sizes: Churchill, corona gorda, figurado, lonsdale, panetela and robusto.
