The Cigar Industry Report is a one stop place to catch up on the activity here at Cigar Coop and Stogie Geeks. It is a combination of our news reports, cigar reviews, and assessment updates we do throughout the week. We will also recap what happened on our Stogie Geeks show.  Finally, each week we will look back at Cigar Coop history. Look for this report every Saturday morning at 8am Eastern time.

We Remember Mike DeRago

Popular retailer Mike “Mikey Black” DeRago passed away on 3/11/15.  Mike was the owner of Nero’s Cigars in Haddonfield, New Jersey.  Mike was a Philly guy through and through.  He touched many lives both inside the cigar industry and outside the cigar industry.  He loved cigars and the La Jugada Prieto was one that became among his favorites. He was a mentor and a friend to this author.  Our prayers and condolences go to his family and friends.
