Out of the Humidor

Marvin R. Shanken, Gordon Mott
From the Print Edition:
Jeff Daniels-The Newsroom, July/August 2012

(continued from page 1)

Editor’s Note: Mr. Stump, no one disputes the basic nature of the Cuban government. What we have always believed, and always argued, is that the best way to bring about change in Cuba is to open up the doors and create more people-to-people contacts, not less. For 50 years we have isolated Cuba and what has happened? The ones who have suffered the most are the Cuban people. No one is genuflecting before anyone. We simply believe there’s got to be a better way to bring about the change we all desire.

Dear Marvin,

I have been enjoying your wonderful publication for over 15 years. Brilliant articles, a wealth of insider information and lovely cigar ratings—always something new and exciting. The cigar ratings in particular are a fantastic guide for any cigar lover to get the idea of what is good and available, and Connoisseur’s Corner is always a trip down memory lane. I have been impressed with the quality of the recent Cuba coverage.

Like the superb coverage of Scotch, wine, and the amazing interviews with the world’s most famous cigar smokers, the Cuba coverage in the magazine is becoming more sophisticated and complex with each issue. Are there any plans to educate readers on the market for counterfeit cigars coming directly from Cuba, which also seems to be growing more sophisticated with time?

Best Regards,
Leonid Kuzmin
New York, New York
