Arnold Schwarzenegger • November/December 2019

The one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the cover of Cigar Aficionado as his newest project, Terminator: Dark Fate, hits theaters. Schwarzenegger sits down with executive editor David Savona over a hearty cigar and talks about the appeal of the Terminator—the role that made him a superstar—his thoughts on business and politics and his lifelong love of fine cigars. Also in this year-end issue, the story about Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, the $160 million film that brings together Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, a guide to the best cigar-friendly steakhouses in America, the mysteries of top-tier Cognac and a walk through the fields of the Connecticut River Valley, home to golden-brown Connecticut shade. All that, and much more, plus our blind tasting of 81 cigars.

The issue is on newsstands everywhere November 5.
