Out of the Humidor

CA Readers
From the Print Edition:
cigar case, Summer 93

Dear Marvin:

I had no idea. I thought cigar smokers were a dying, passé lot. Then I got hold of your magazine. I read, reread and proudly displayed the issue. I had no idea there were so many of me out there.

So at 45 and the owner of a company so straight-laced we don't tolerate even strong coffee, I have come out of the closet. Your magazine lies open on my desk. Tonight my wife and I will invite my dear old mother to dinner, and later I will watch her swoon as I light up a Partagas #10.

I had no idea.

Dear Marvin:

Being a young, single male, I often find that the women of my generation have been brainwashed concerning cigars. I find it difficult to pursue a relationship with a woman who has no appreciation for one of life's truly fine things. It may be unorthodox to request, but your list of cigar friendly restaurants has inspired me: perhaps a list of cigar friendly WOMEN in your next issue? (I find I have several like-minded friends.)

Dear Marvin - Regarding the letter from Peter Worsham in the August issue, I lived in Havana from 1997 until 2000 as a member of the U.S. Interests Section. The GOOD cigars are indeed heavily controlled and expensive no matter where you buy them including Cuba. That said there was always counterfeit/seconds cigars to be had on the black market, but so easily available that the Cuban government had to be aware or complicit in their production and sale. In the end, although not top of the line cigars it was Cuban tobacco which I think is the best in the world.
Changing the subject, I just returned from a car trip to Eastern North Carolina and was surprised to see farm fields of growing tobacco. These same fields use to grow soy beans, cotton, and corn, while the owners were being paid NOT to grow tobacco. Can anyone tell me what has happened? Chinese demand? Domestic demand? Other?
Thanks for the fine magazine.
