The cigar countdown began Monday December 1st with cigar #30.  Cigar #29 is unveiled on December 2nd, Cigar #28 on December 3rd, etc. When we get to #1 and #2, we will hold a little suspense and announce those cigars on New Years’ Eve.  Cigars eligible are ones released for the first time to retailers during the “2015 Cigar Year” (November 28, 2014 through November 26, 2015 – the Cigar Coop Black Friday to Thanksgiving cycle). The process is detailed in the December 2015 Editor’s Corner column.

I hope you will enjoy this original concept in sharing the top cigars of the year.
