The Cigar - Moments of Pleasure

I recently had the joy of receiving a beautiful coffee book for free entitled The Cigar – Moments of Pleasure, by Morten Ehrhorn & Justin Hummerston (official book page). It’s a hardbound book, 312 pages, pretty heavy—and absolutely brimming with information about cigars and gorgeous color photographs.

I’ve read a number of coffee table books about cigars over the years. Some of them are amazing; many more are ambitious, but fall short of achieving their aims.

This one is by far one of the best I have read! The Cigar – Moments of Pleasure covers everything you could hope to learn about cigars—their history, how and where they are made, all about cigar leaves, and even how cigars stimulate our brains. There is research in this book I simply haven’t seen anywhere else. And the photographs and the layouts are absolutely stunning!

The Cigar - Moments of Pleasure

Like a good cigar itself, this is a book you want to spend time with, leisurely turning through the pages, enjoying the experience moment by moment. In fact, there is no better way to do it than while smoking your favorite stogie.

The Cigar - Moments of Pleasure

It is a pricey book, but very reasonable in light of what you are getting—hundreds of pages of color photographs and a goldmine of information; right now on Amazon it is going for $59. It’s well worth the cost; it’s a great book for newbies who are just starting to learn about cigars as well as veteran smokers who want to add to their already-comprehensive knowledge. Anyone can learn something from this book, or just lose themselves in the photos.

  192. Welcome back Cigar Inspector 🙂 Looks like there’s a few books coming out about cigars as of late and this one looks be the one to get ahold of. Thanks for another great contest and good luck everyone.

  193. Now I need to go out and buy a coffee table.

  194. I just love to read and ever since I started smoking cigars I have been looking online and in the book stores for information. this book looks like it is a gold mine and I cant wait to get it..

  195. The price from Amazon sounds pretty reasonable for a well done table book. I love studying about cigars. The history, the origins of the growers, blenders and makers all areenthralling.
    Gee, being an old geezer on a fixed income, goads me into hoping for this prize.
    Thanks for sharing!

  196. Would love to have it to increase my knowledge and love of cigars.

  197. I can’t wait to see how my brain will be stimulated by the reading of this research about cigar brain stimulation!

  198. Looks like book to me!

  200. Love to read, love to smoke!

  201. A great book to read while having a great cigar!

  202. I would love to have this beautiful book, whether I am selected or not, I will be adding it to my library.

  203. That would make me enjoy reading!.

  204. I’ve read The Complete IDIOTS guide to Cigars by Tad Gage, The Cigar Lover’s Compendium by Lawrence Dorfman, The Ultimate Cigar Book by Richard Hacker and read every issue of Cigar Aficionado from cover to cover; many twice. Winning a copy of ‘The Cigar – Moments of Pleasure’ would be just that and more…a long and lasting moment of pleasure. I’m fascinated with cigar history, the great multi-generational family legacies, the upstarts like Willy Herrera,the agriculture/growing, the harvesting, the art and science of maturation, curing and rolling. This particular book will be read and re-read I’m sure. And it will be prominently displayed as my coffee table centerpiece surrounded by Wine Spectator and Travel & Leisure.
    Thanks for this opportunity,

  205. When you know better, you smoke better!
    Looks beautiful. Would love it!
    Happy Smokes !!!
