Cigar Aficionado was first published in September 1992 by Marvin R Shanken. He had already seen success with other publications such as Wine Spectator, which had already had a successful run since 1976. Shanken’s vision for the magazine was to have high profile celebrities and athletes on the cover to draw in the consumers. This worked to great effect. Cigar Aficionado has had many notable persons such as Jack Nicholson, Arnold Shwarzenegger and Michael Jordan to name a few. The contents of the publication would focus on cigar culture primarily, that being said other luxury items and news would appear throughout. Being an American magazine it would often comment on its opposition to the Cuban Embargo.
