“Earlier this month, we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of shipping our first boxes of cigars and we could not have made it this far without your support,” said the company in a letter to retailers. “As we look towards 2022 and our next ten years to come, we are facing cost increases ranging from freight to materials (tobacco, boxes, bands, etc.) to labor, and user fees. As a result, we will be making price adjustments across our portfolio of brands effective January 1, 2022.”
