The Cigar Industry Report is a one-stop place to catch up on the activity here at Cigar Coop. It is a combination of the news reports, cigar reviews, and assessment updates we do throughout the week. In addition, each week we will look back at Cigar Coop history. Look for this report every Saturday morning at 8am Eastern Time.


Cigar Industry Report: Edition 500 (8/27/22)

The Headlines


On January 26, 2013, we introduced a Saturday feature called “Cigar Wrap Week” meant to summarize all of the activities on Cigar Coop for the previous week. Eventually this morphed into the “Cigar Industry Report.” For nearly every Saturday since then (with the exception of some IPCPR/PCA coverage), this has been a feature on Cigar Coop. Today we have published our 500th installment of this series.
