First ever cigar book dedicated to Nicaraguan cigars, containing background stories and glossy images from each of the following cigar makers: Joya de Nicaragua, AJ Fernandez, My Father Cigars, Drew Estate, Oliva, Rocky Patel, Padron, Espinosa and Plasencia.
Cuba has the reputation but Nicaragua has the cigars. Experts know that Nicaragua’s advance as cigar country has been unstoppable for years. The Central American Country has a fabulous climate, fertile soil and - maybe most importantly - the right people to make great cigars. This book is not so much about cigars, but above all about - some - of the people who make them.
Writer Marcel Langedijk and photographer Jesaja Hizkia im-mersed themselves in Estelí, Nicaragua, the cigar capital of the world and visited many legendary cigar makers. From classic companies like Padrón and Joya de Nicaragua to the ridiculously cool Drew Estate and relative newcomers like Espinosa Cigars. A breathtaking account of the current cigar country.
