Cigar Aficionado's 20th Anniversary • September/October 2012
September/October 2012

In the October issue of Cigar Aficionado, we celebrate 20 years of being the ultimate resource for cigar lovers. It starts with Editor and Publisher Marvin R. Shanken telling the tale of how the magazine was created and continues with various in-depth features that examine the magazine's impact not only on the industry, but cigar culture. This 274-page collector's edition includes works by famed authors Gay Talese and P.J. O'Rourke, a journey back in time with some of the pioneers of the cigar industry, a gallery showing every cover of the magazine, discussions with some of the celebrities who have graced our cover, a dream interview with some of history's most famous cigar lovers and much, much more. Plus, we look at slow play on golf courses, teach you how to get VIP treatment in a hotel, and argue why the NFL's quarterback rating system is flawed.
