Around the World in 80 Cigars Book by Nick Hammond
Around The World In 80 Cigars – The Travels Of An Epicure is a cigar book like no other.
Renowned author and cigar writer Nick Hammond is probably well known to you all; he’s been a columnist for Cigar Journal for many years, he was the inaugural winner of the Spectator Cigar Writer of the Year Award back in 2013; he pens cigar and luxury articles for publications around the world and has long been an enthusiastic supporter of the UK cigar trade .
His new book charts a quarter century of his life as a roving reporter; a compendium of weird, wonderful, poignant and poetic stories which will amuse, entertain and inspire. As well as highlighting a host of cigars available from every corner of the cigar making globe, Hammond takes us on a breathless tour of 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 rainforests of Borneo?
These, and many more remarkable tales, are retold with tongue firmly in cheek and each & 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 stunning original black and white hand drawings from renowned artist Sam Bridge and a silk ribbon page marker.
Nick Hammond has pledged ten per cent of the profits from Around The World In 80 Cigars – The Travels Of An Epicure to Fe y Alegria in Nicaragua. Faith & Happiness, as it is translated, is a Christian charity working on behalf of underprivileged children. In Nicaragua’s cigar capital of Estelí, the charity runs a hugely important school giving local children – many of whom may not otherwise stay in education much beyond their 12th birthday – the opportunity to continue to study and build a better life for themselves and their families. Tor Imports (the UKs premier Nicaraguan cigar importer) has similarly agreed to donate £1 for every copy of Around The World In 80 Cigars purchased back to Fe y Alegria.
