Assouline Just Released a Thousand Dollar Cigar Book

Assouline-Impossible-Collection-of-Cigars

Assouline’s Ultimate Collection of coffee table books is the bar against which all others are judged. Each book in the bestselling series is an oversized, luxury, hand-bound tome devoted to impossible collections of Rolex watches, Andy Warhol’s art and now, cigars. Written by author Aaron Sigmond (founding editor of Smoke magazine and The Cigar Report and former creative director of General Cigar Co.) The Impossible Collection of Cigars “envisions the ultimate humidor brimming with the most remarkable cigars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries from the most prestigious makers.” Ultimate humidor and prestigious makers are the operative parts of that description because this is nothing but big guns. Nicaragua’s Padrón. Dominican Republic’s Arturo Fuente. Davidoff of Geneva. Honduras’ Rocky Patel. Bahamas’ Graycliff. All things Cuba. The book itself is a cigar bucket list that truly shines a light on the differences and attributes of the smokes we all covet not just as finished products but through the entire process from farm to finishing. $995.00

    *For THAT much there'd better be some very premium, aged cigars in there as well - :thinking:

       Come to think  - give it some time: it'll be available on Ebay for 1/3rd the price***

I'm not sure how Rocky Patel landed in such lofty company.

Yeah, that’s just silly. I wouldn’t buy it for $100...

Even MRN which has been out of print for over a decade only recently has reached over $500 and it arguably is the ultimate bible for cigars. This coffee table book starts out at double that price. Laughable.

Nice pictures, a bit of a meaningless and forgettable blurb on each, yer whatever. Buy this book? A thousand bucks for what is essentially just a coffee table book?

"yet today, a robusto is amongst the smallest acceptable ring guages".

What I would like to do is take this big heavy book and beat Robin Birley over the head with it for this asinine comment.

Really nitpicking here, but it says 'Puros' on the cover. The Avo in the sample pictures has tobaccos from different countries and thus is not a puro.  Same with a large percentage of NC cigars.

Better served residing on the back of the commode for reading during my 'morning ritual' lol.
