James Suckling, who has been the European Editor of Cigar Aficionado magazine since it was launched in 1992, has retired from the company.
His primary coverage responsibility was Cuba. His assignments will be shared by the magazine's senior staff including Executive Editor Gordon Mott and Senior Editor David Savona.
"James Suckling was a key contributor to the success of Cigar Aficionado," said editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken. "He will be missed, but we are fortunate to have a capable and knowledgeable staff regarding all aspects of the world of Cuban cigars."
