Coming Soon: IPCPR 2017

Let me ask you a personal question: Do you like free cigars? Odds are you do. My scientific, peer-eschewed research indicates 9.5 out of 10 people prefer their cigars to cost nothing. The other guy? He got so excited he scribbled all over the survey, broke his pencil and then fell out of his chair. I’m counting that as half a “yes”. Heck, I’m a little excited just writing this paragraph, and I’m the one giving away cigars.

The next obvious question is what does free cigars have to do with the upcoming IPCPR 2017 trade show? Well here’s the scoop. I’m interested in your feedback. As you know, the trade show is huge, and it just isn’t possible to interview everyone and ask every question. I’d like to know what and who you’d most like to see in our IPCPR coverage. And if you help us out with a comment below by the end of next Wednesday (July 5th), I’ll put your name in the hat to win a fiver of fine smokes.

Here are a few questions to get you going:

Who would you most like to see us interview? (You don’t have to pick just one person/manufacturer.)

What IPCPR cigar release(s) are you most looking forward to?

What question(s) would you like to us to ask? (Can be a general question or for a specific person/manufacturer.)

Of course, feel free to elaborate to your heart’s content, or go off script if you have other ideas. If you need a refresher on how we do things at IPCPR, here’s the IPCPR 2016 Complete Digest.

On Thursday I should have mostly recovered from July 4th festivities, and will pick a winner using my proprietary and only moderately biased algorithm. Don’t worry, it’s biased in favor of the quality of the feedback, not on how well I know you. (Multiple questions answered means multiple entries.) And maybe I’ll nudge the scale in your favor if you do me a favor and share this post on FaceBook and Twitter.

You also probably want to know what’s in the five pack. Because, hey, if you’re going to take the time to type and possibly even think a bit, it better be worth it, right? If you win, you’ll get one of each: Warped Flor Del Valle Sky Flower, Four Kicks Mule Kick 2017, Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua, Hoyo La Amistad, and Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Maduro. Are you typing yet? I would be. Seriously though, thank you for your time and your comment.
