The official account of Cigar Aficionado, the magazine that celebrates #cigars and #TheGoodLife.
On newsstands July 10: It's hard not to smile when you're Matthew McConaughey, who has an Oscar, a new #Bourbon and three films heading to theaters this year. In August's Cigar Aficionado, we sit down with the actor for the second time to discuss his illustrious career, his new role as creative director for @WildTurkey, and his three upcoming films that span comedy, drama and action. Also, we look at the dawn of legal sports betting in America, the unlikely success of the @NHL's @VegasGoldenKnights and the new rules affecting the @PGATour. Plus, @JoyaCigars marks its 50th birthday, America's oldest cigar smoker (and oldest man) turns 112, and 79 cigars rated in six sizes: Churchill, corona gorda, double corona, figurado, panetela and robusto.
Fans of Nicaraguan tobacco will be happy to know that this @AgingRoomCigars Small Batch Pura Cepa is in stores now. This new cigar combines tobaccos from the four primary growing regions of Nicaragua: Ometepe, Jalapa, Condega and Estelí.

#CigarOfTheWeek | @PlasenciaCigars Alma del Campo Travesía: This oily looking cigar has a good draw. Woody notes of cedar play off the cigar's inherent salt-and-pepper qualities. The bready finish hints of sweetness and spice.
#WatchesToWatch | @IWCWatches' classic Portugieser collection is expanding with the Portugieser Automatic (Slide 1, $12,700) and Portugieser Perpetual Calendar (Slide 2, $53,300). The Portugieser line can be traced back to the 1930s, when two Portuguese wholesalers approached the watch company in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, about developing a stainless-steel wristwatch with the exacting precision of a marine chronometer.

#CigarOfTheWeek | Joya Cabinetta Robusto from @JoyaCigars: Rolled with two wrappers, this cigar starts woody and tangy with hints of vanilla bean but takes on the sweet quality of chocolate-covered raisins. The finish is toasty.
