Jeremy Piven • March/April 2016

Moving seamlessly from the abrasive agent on “Entourage” to the gentleman retailer of “Mr Selfridge,” Jeremy Piven proves his acting range. Read about Piven's illustrious career, and his love of fine cigars, in the April Cigar Aficionado. Plus, we go inside London's cigar scene, celebrate 50 years of Cuba’s legendary Cohiba brand and explore the inspiring story of the Broadway sensation On Your Feet! And as always, we rate 81 cigars across six categories: Churchill, Corona Gorda, Figurado, Lonsdale, Panetela and Robusto.
