  • Smoked Real Cuban Cigar 1st Time in My Life

    I was on vacation in the Caribbean. It was a Romeo & Julieta cigar and I paid $27 for just 1 cigar!


    If we live in USA and we can't get Cubans because of the embargo, what can we get as a substitute that has comparable quality??

    Doesn't Honduras put out a good product in cigars?

      Everyone I've heard from about cigars says that Dominicans are the best better than overrated Cubans.

        Dominicans are also good at rolling crepes.

            Dominican Republic as well. IMO better than Cuban. They have been over priced while they are the forbidden fruit not that their that much better.

                    I've had a few Cubans and found them to be over-priced and over-rated. Most of the top producers left Cuba when Castro took over and took their knowledge, as well as their seeds, to other countries.

                      I think the H. Upmann's from the Dominican Republic are as good or better than any Cuban cigar. H. Upmann was a Cuban company that fled when Castro came to power. They are Cuban seed, grown in the same soil and conditions and the quality is better.

                        Cuban cigars are not the apex that many folks believe them to be. That being said, they're not bad either. One of my most memorable smokes was a Habana Montecristo #2. The Cuban cigar industry was nationalized by the Castro regime along with most other privately held industries when the island went communist in the late '50s. There is still, however, a pride in manufacture along with a pride in country, brand, ingredients, construction and distribution of Cuban cigars.
                        In my opinion the mere fact that they are contraband here in the US give them a sort of mystical cachet that they probably don't deserve. This tends to make them overpriced in the places where they are available. Add to that the fact that the Cuban cigar industry commands and gets a good price for their wares gives one the impression that they may not be worth the cost.
                        And it is certainly true that several other Caribbean countries have, as their exports, wonderful cigars. The Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Panama, Mexico, and especially Honduras have all developed tobacco industries that put them along with Cuba at the top of the cigar heap.
                        There is a myriad of different styles, blends, strengths, lengths, ring sizes, ages and colors available to the avid cigar smoker. What one prefers is a personal choice. So...smoke 'em if ya got 'em and enjoy the experience.

                          If you got sick, you may have smoked a fake one. Real Cuban cigars have a creamy spicy aftertaste.
                          Selling fake cigars to tourists is a national sport in Cuba.







                          The only place to get authentic Cuban cigars is from a Cuban government sanctioned Habanos store and stores at the airport.
                          If you are buying a box of them, insist on a box where all seals are intact. Then you can authenticate it on this site: www.habanos.com
                          Select “Authenticity Check” on the top center of the home page. You can enter the barcode number and learn if your box is authentic.
                          If you bought an open unsealed box of cigars, it will be hard to authenticate.

                              You probably hadn't smoked one for awhile or just weren't use to smoking. They can be over powering, best to smoke a smaller cigar than a Churchill when starting out.
