Product Description

Product Description

CIGAR AFICIONADO is edited for successful, extremely affluent men. It covers information on fine cigars plus life's other great pleasures: fine dining and entertaining, the finest wines and spirits, world travel and the arts.

Amazon.com Review

Unlike most of its counterparts in the men's magazine ranks, Cigar Aficionado targets a classier, more cultivated man, the guy who'd rather smoke a Montecristo and savor the indulgence of a cherry-red '65 Mustang convertible than read about what Hollywood stars have to say while they eat lunch. It's the mature man's Esquire, a magazine that's more interested in yachts, rum, and golf than it is in this season's new fashions. As the name suggests, at the heart of the magazine is the cigar, with articles investigating everything from California smoking laws to Cuban politics. It's true that you don't have to smoke cigars to enjoy Cigar Aficionado, but Cigar Aficionado is a magazine that will try its very hardest to get you to enjoy cigars. --Jon Groebner

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, But Not As Consistent November 20, 2001
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is one of my favorite magazines, however I must confess that I have been somewhat disappointed since the focus of the magazine changed from "CIGAR Afficianado" to "Cigar AFFICIANADO". To those who don't understand this, take a look at what is emphasized on current issues, versus the emphasis on previous deals.
While the most recent issue (with Mayor Guilani) was great, other issues have reflected the magazine's trend toward a more general circulation "lifestyle" format focusing on attracting the "female reader". Earlier issues which contained profiles on J P Morgan, politicians such as JFK and handled weighty topics have given way to puff pieces on Kevin Bacon Raquel Welsh (OK, so the pictures in the latter article were good.
I'd prefer more frequent substantive articles rather than just recylced "Wine Spectator" or "GQ" stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars used to love it March 22, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Once upon a time, this was one of my favorite magazines. The reason was simple. I love cigars and this was a magazine primarily about cigars. The cigar content now, though, seems often to be an after-thought. The serious articles of the past have given way to more and more ads and articles about watches and shirts that cost more than the gross national product of much of the world. Too much now is about frivolous celebrity culture, devoid of any cigar-related content. If I had the slightest interest in how some actor/singer/athlete lives, I would read one of those magazines. While I will still occasionally pick this up, and still do find the occasional exceptional article, I have now turned to Cigar magazine for my cigar-related content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Done but for the Upper Crust. January 14, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This magazine is rather interesting as it should come with a socio-economic rating because you need to have a certain amount of wealth to appreciate it. It's not for middle class guys like this reviewer as, even if I wanted to, I could never afford most of the stuff advertised in these pages. In the last issue, I read about vacation ideas which I may or may be able to afford in 30 years--provided I'm still alive. Ads for Porsches and the like are rather lost on me. It does keep its promise though as it focuses on the good life and all which this phrase encompasses. Unlike Maxim or GQ, it's short on women and big on stuff. All the accoutrements of the playboy lifestyle are on parade here. One could spend a fortune even if they took seriously only half of these suggestions. I even saw a ski jacket for $2,500; it must be nice to have that kind of disposable income. Anyway, the cigar content is thorough and interesting. I do wish that there were more articles about cigars in general as opposed to ones concerning particular brands and ratings. Overall, the quality of the features and production is excellent even though it will have limited appeal for the average person.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the decline November 11, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
When this mag started, it was the perfect (cigar) man's read. Delightful mix of politics, travel, but we always got a full plate of Cigar info.
In recent years, the mag has relied more on 'puffery' and doubled the amount of ads. It's still a decent read, but hardly what it used to be, and barely worth the (discounted) subscription price. I almost gave this a 3, but the very recent issues might be showing an uptrend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a cigar magazine . . . May 20, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I asked for this magazine last year as a birthday present, I have read this magazine at the store and friends homes. In addition to interesting stories about cigars and the industry this is a magazine about living the good life. You dont have to be a millionaire to do that and they cover all income levels of the good life. I read it cover-to-cover each month . . . what a great magazine !!

4.0 out of 5 stars man talk October 10, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Cool cars, expensive vodka, Italian suits, football, golf and its accoutrements, watches named after international capitals.

Oh, and cigars.

That's what you get in this quintessential rich man's magazine. Cigars are merely the hook and sustained theme, but upon this hook there hang and around this theme are embroidered myriad topics that men with a lot of discretionary spending power - or those who like to think they have it - enjoy.

The articles are generally well-written, their text surrounded by the volume of attractive white space with which a high-end glossy can afford to pamper the reader's eye. There's not a lot of intellectual content or insightful analysis of world events, but then that's not what men come to CIGAR AFICIONADO to find.

This monthly 'Good Life Magazine for Men' is all about eye candy and expensive guy toys without the soft porn that often peppers such periodicals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Left leaning most of the time.
It was kind of a turn off this publication leaned to far left a couple of times. I wish they would stick with lifestyle and less with politics.
