About Cigar Reader
Meet John Thames!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to visit Cigar Reader. I am John Thames, the founder and the creator of Cigar Reader and I am attempting to use my years of experience in the cigar industry to teach you to become a cigar expert.
I have been working in the cigar industry for over 30 years in a wide variety of different positions. I started my career in my 20’s as fan of smoking cigars in my free time. This passion soon became an obssession and I decided to get a job at my local cigar manufacturer. This was hard manual labor but it taught me everything I needed to know about how cigars are made, what it takes to create high quality cigars, as well as got to use different cigar products.
I used this experience to fuel my future entreprenuerial ventures as I started my own cigar brands and even helped cigar brands to grow their customer base. As you can tell, cigars and the cigar industry have been a passion of mine for many years and I hope to use my years of experience to help you learn more about cigars. We produce new articles on a weekly basis and are always looking for new article ideas. So if you would like the Cigar Reader team to teach you a specific thing or write about a specific topic in the cigar industry then please use our contact form to let us know what you would like to us to write about!
My Passion For Cigars
I have been in the cigar industry for over 30 years but my passion for cigars started when I was in my early 20’s. I absolutely loved smoking cigars with my dad and these experiences fueled my passion for cigars. This made me want to work in the cigar industry and I have loved every single day of it for the past 30+ years!
The cigar industry has changed a lot over the past 30 years. This is because legislation has changed, new brands have entered the market, and there has just been a lot of changes in the industry as a whole.
