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)
TODAY IS THE 500th INSTALLMENT OF THE CIGAR INDUSTRY REPORT!
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 each Saturday (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.
Caraballo Splits from Tarazona; Tarazona Loses U.S. House Bid
Mario Caraballo has split from Tarazona Cigars. This week Caraballo announced he has launched Casa Caraballo Cigars, and he has taken the Caraballo branded cigars with him. Meanwhile Tarazona Cigars’ owner Eddie Tarazona has lost his bid for the U.S. House of Representatives as he was defeated in the GOP Primary.
