‘Around The World In 80 Cigars – The Travels Of An Epicure’ is a cigar book like no other.
This journal-style, cigar-flavoured travelogue has been written by respected cigar writer Nick Hammond and is now available across the UK (as well as Europe, with the US soon to follow).
Hammond has cast his eye over the past quarter-century, at his life as a roving reporter, and the result is a compendium of weird, wonderful, poignant and poetic stories which will amuse, entertain and inspire.
As well as highlighting a host of cigars from every corner of the cigar-making globe, Nick introduces some of the world’s most amazing people, places and perspectives.
Ever wondered what it’s like to walk through a Bosnian minefield? Play tug of war with a Nile crocodile on the Limpopo River? Dive with Great White Sharks off South Africa, sail in a hot air balloon over Cognac or trek the rain forests of Borneo?
These, and many more remarkable tales, are retold with tongue firmly in cheek and each and every story is trailed by the waft of fine cigar smoke. A must-read for the cigar man or woman and a wonderful gift from a thoughtful friend or relative, Around The World In 80 Cigars – The Travels Of An Epicure is a beautifully presented, luxurious hardback journal, featuring a silk ribbon page marker and stunning original black and white hand drawings from renowned artist Sam Bridge.
Nick Hammond has been a columnist for Cigar Journal for many years, was the inaugural winner of the Boisdale Spectator Cigar Writer of the Year Award back in 2013, regularly hosts cigar events. He is well known as a supporter of the UK cigar industry and may well be known to many of you.
The book has an RRP of £19.99 and is available from all good bookshops – and cigar stores – now.
