27 lessons to become a cigar expert – book giveaway!

27 lessons to become a cigar expert - book giveaway!You are expecting a cigar review round-up, but today we're bringing you something you like more than that - a contest! A few months ago, David from Cashisfun.com asked me to read a book about cigars that he was planning to release. The book is called "27 Lessons to Help You Become a Cigar Expert" and provides valuable information about cigar etiquette, history, the right way to choose cigars, etc. It's written in a very simple way and whereas a seasoned aficionado already knows most of it, it's really good for newbies.

The book currently retails for ~$10 on Amazon (list price is $15). Here is the product page where you can read some reviews. Now for the good part. David is willing to give away 3 copies of the book to CigarInspector.com readers. As usual, nothing easier to enter - just leave a comment on this post. This contest is open worldwide, but you'll receive a digital copy if you're outside of the United States. Good luck! We'll announce the results (the winners will be chosen randomly) on Wednesday.

UPDATE The contest is over. Click here if you would like to purchase the book.

  59. Wow, Am I the only lady on here? lol
    Looks like great book! its been an uphill climb for me with cigars, men really do not want a woman hanging around them when they smoke so I have had to find out most of what I know by stealth or from my grandfather who said that any lass that could smoke a cigar was one worth knowing (my grandmother smoked cigars when they met) they were married for 56 years before they passed on within a month of eachother.

  60. Wow, that would be great. I’m having a cigar right now and have much to learn still.
