Can't wait to get back to that level of luxury.


Come On Man. Kick for the Cigars for the Cousins, I know those arms can reach to the bottom of those DEEP POCKETS.

At $30 each, I'm not supplying souvenir cigars.
I don't mind spending money, but won't be RIPPED-OFF.

Unfortunately the price of Cuban cigars has more than doubled here since September.

A small pack of 3 Cuban Macanudo/Partagas/Monte Cristo "Corona" size cigars is now $80 !
Cheapest single cigars were $29.
The relatives requesting we bring home souvenir cigars got their orders UN-fulfilled.
That price was insane.
A "regular" box of Cuban Cigars was over $400.


Back when I still smoked I would buy a few Cubans when I did jobs outside the US. I tried several different sticks but for some reason I just never liked them—too strong, or something. I much preferred a fresh Dominican or Honduran rolled Cohiba, Macanudo, Orlando, or even a Ghurka smoke.

I Can say I would not supply souvenirs at $ 30.00 each either. Back in the day when I could get
Romeo Y Julieta's for $5.00 each I would bring some back when I would visit the Suarez farm in
Mexico. I could get 12 Monterrey's for $60.00, I would smoke these with my brother on special
occasions.

Not sure why the price of Cuban cigars has blown up obnoxiously.
I used to pay around $8-9 each for Macanudos until about 2 years ago.

I think maybe the Chinese may be trading Fentanyl for Cigars.

Lol.
Sounds like a good way to get rid of both.
