The Cigar Week Wrap is a one stop place to catch up on the activity here at Cigar Coop. It is a combination of our news reports, cigar reviews, and assessment updates we do throughout the week. We will throw in a few bonus items from time to time as well. Our intent is to publish once a week on Saturday mornings. Note: We have decided to label our posts as “Volume 2” to be consistent with the monthly “Editor’s Corner”.

News and Previews

It appeared that this week would be a slow week of news, then the shocking news came about IPCPR CEO Bill Spann’s resignation.

Stogie Geeks Episode 66

Episode 66 was posted this week. In this episode, we had Barry Stein from Miami Cigar and Company as our special guest.

Stein is well-known for being a pioneer in cigar media with founding A Cigar Smoker’s Journal.  In 2012, he relocated to Miami and has become the Assistant Director of Marketing.  Stein discusses the many projects going on at Miami Cigar and Company including his own blend, the KILO.

Our second half of the episode focused on our smokes of the week.  This was highlighted by Paul giving the Tatuaje Black Label Corona Gorda 2013 an Oasis Rating – the highest rating on the Stogie Geeks show.
