    ill pass on CA. It is for those A-Holes who want to buy Gurkha cigars for 250,000. I also will never in my life time be able to afford a Ferrari, Bently, or Trips to Scottland to play golf.

    This is not a personal attack on the readers just my thoughts. Oh and I love how they gave Shakin cigar of the year last year. LOL

    The latest issue is pretty good, has a great review on the top 25 sticks of 2010. Also a nice section on quality budget smokes.
    Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.

    I like the mag, I'm in the mag/publishing business so it's always nice to see a well-done mag (layout, photos, content, etc.). I just subscribed and got my first issue (Dec) and have read it cover to cover and LOVED it. I really enjoyed ALL the articles (with the exception of the basketball one, scanned the pix and moved on) with the Scotch and Belushi articles being my favorites. I look at it this way - if a magazine provides info and entertainment and draws me in, I'm going to read it. Do I read it for the reviews? Nope, but I do look at them.

    I'm in the minority. I don't like it. Very little about cigars.
    I tend to go ECJ, Smoke or CP.

    I don't subscribe but pick up a copy when flying. I enjoy the lifestyle articles. Looking forward to the February interview with Paul Giamatti.

    I won a subscription in a contest on another board. I doubt that I'd pay for a subscription, but it's not a bad mag if you take their reviews with several grains of salt.

    Last issue they had an article about some reporter babe, and there was a picture of her with a cigar so obviously airbrushed in that it was laughable. I called them out on it, and Mottola said that it was some kind of gargantuan 8x54 thing or something. LOL. All the skinny cigar smoking babes that I know go for those Flor de Oliva Giants.

    To be honest with you, I don't believe they ever were!
    I was on maghoud or whatever that netflix for magazines site it becasue my friend told me about it and that they had CA as one of the mags you could pick. Well the deal wasnt a deal, so I didnt do it, but in the description for CA it said it was for the super affluent, so I dont think its for me anyway.


    What I dont like all the time is how they seem to review so many Cubans. Its nice looking at the reviews, but when half, including the top ones, are ones I cant get its kind of annoying.

    I more or less thumb through the mag at the store, and read some reviews. Then read the articles and reviews online from there website. I may buy the occasional mag, if it looks like a lot of good content.

    It's good toilet reading, lol. I usually re-up when they have the 2 years for $20 deal.

    Speaking of which ... thumbed through last months issue at the golf course this past weekend while on the crapper. Thats the only time I read it. Although the 2 yrs for 20 sounds okay.
