While movies like The Godfather, Once Upon A Time in America and Goodfellas make for fascinating viewing, there’s an even better story out there—the tales of real-life mobsters–that we tell in this issue of Cigar Aficionado. From Al Capone to Charles “Lucky” Luciano, we look at the lives of men who made their living by gun and knife. Also, New York Times best-selling author T.J. English tells the story of the Italian-Cuban Mob war of New York. We also talk to Tiger Woods about his new golf course, taste an array of cask-strength whiskeys and chat with a bold entrepreneur who just put up the luxurious, $1 billion Circa Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Plus, we sit down for a smoke with NFL Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed, check in with cigar legends on their favorite holiday drinks and speak with Carlos Fuente Jr. and Jorge Padrón on their sentimental collaboration. And it wouldn’t be complete without our Good Life Guide and fresh reviews of 70-plus cigars in six size categories. All this and more, on newsstands December 22.
