New Cigar Releases at the IPCPR International Trade Show

There were literally hundreds of new cigars released at the 84th Annual Convention and International Trade Show at the Sands Expo and Venetian in Las Vegas, NV. The event was sponsored by the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association and was held July 24-28th, 2016. We couldn’t pretend to list every cigar released at this year’s event, in light of the pending Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (FUFDA) regulation. Below is a list of the major new cigar releases.
