VSIgar insider, Cigar loverThe bi-monthly newsletter has a new, state-of-the-art design meant to give you even more information about the cigars you love. The publication, which features unique vertical tastings of brands, reviews of the latest cigars, insightful interviews with cigar makers and the latest cigar industry news, is now fully digital.
In other words, The initiate is now designed for cigar aficionados who love to read on the go.
Cigar initiated has evaluated thousands of cigars since its debut in 1996. Over the years, the publication has become best known for conducting unique vertical tastings of your favorite brands, which no other publication does.
While Cigar lover rate only individual cigars, Cigar initiatedVertical Brand Tastings take it a step further by tasting and rating each size of a particular brand, giving the reader a complete analysis of the entire range in a single snapshot. This overview of the brand in its entirety provides the cigar aficionado or retailer with more accurate information, as they can instantly determine which size provides the best smoking experience, and size matters. Some mixes can excel as robusto but are quite dull in a 6 by 60 grande. Others may be mediocre in a Churchill format but absolutely brilliant as a belicoso.
And like our Cigar lover tastings, all noted in Cigar initiated is blind smoked, which makes the process as objective as possible. Our tasting coordinator purchases all cigars for review by Cigar initiated retailers to mimic the consumer experience.
In addition to vertical tastings, Cigar initiated is also known to review the newest cigars as soon as they hit store shelves. Subscribers also have first access to the best ratings of Cigar lover magazine a few weeks before the issue hit newsstands.
Cigar initiated still delivers the same great cigar content, only now it’s packaged for the 21st century. This means that subscribers will be able to easily scroll through fascinating interviews as well as the most relevant and recent cigar news on their mobile devices.
