CBS Sunday Morning • May/June 2020

A program that always seems to lift us up, "CBS Sunday Morning" has been on the air for 40 years and might be just what we all need right now. We focus in on the positive-minded show that has been number one in its time slot for over 11 consecutive years, informing us weekly of everything from art and music to the tragedies and triumphs of the average American. We also dive into the world of rum, a tropical spirit which pairs seamlessly with cigars, take a look at the world’s greatest par-three challenges and unveil the first-ever, mid-engine Corvette. Plus, we cross the border to investigate Mexico’s tobacco scene, review the sale of Cohiba’s $2.6 million humidor, bring you inside the ProCigar Festival 2020 and review 72 cigars in six size categories. All this and more, on newsstands May 26.
