I really enjoy your magazine. The articles are informative and interesting and I enjoy all the information on cigars. But I was disappointed with an advertisement for San Lotano Best Stick of the Day in your last issue. I thought it was in very poor taste for the quality of your magazine. If a cigar must be sold by provocative appeal and not on its own merit then it has no place in your magazine.

Dear Marvin,

I just had to write to say thanks for the fantastic cover story in the February 2012 issue. The trials and tribulations faced by the Fuente family over the last century would have dampened, or drowned, the spirits of just about anybody else. The story itself was amazing,  but it was  David Savona’s powerful  prose that made it a real page-turner. I only wish Fuente cigars were available here so we could join in the 100-year celebration.

Dear Marvin,

I was wondering how much time you guys get to enjoy your own cigars. With over 70 cigars rated per issue, that works out to 35 cigars a month just for tasting notes. I wasn’t sure how much time (or desire) you guys would have to smoke for pleasure if you’re rating more than one cigar a day. Does smoking another un-banded cigar sometimes feel like a bit of a chore?

I know there are days when I just don’t feel like a smoke, so I can imagine that if I had to smoke at least 35 cigars a month it could get a little bit old.
