Hi everyone! Every once in a while I smoke a macanudo with the guys at our hangout. They always talk about cuban cigars and how good they are (they smoked them overseas). I now they are against the law to have in this country, but I don't care. They are only cigars. Where can I get them on-line? You can email me if you are to scared to post :) jml263@aol.com. Thanks alot Jay

I agree, so much so that I thought I was ripped off. I'd rather have an Arturo Fuente OPUS X

[url]http://www.cigarweekly.com[/url] is a popular place to discuss cigars. Edited to add that, although I would NEVER encourage you to smoke something that is illegal for Americans to smoke, anywhere in the world, if they WERE to become legal, I would concentrate on the cigars that use tobacco grown in the Pinar Del Rio region of Cuba. I seem to remember reading somewhere that Cohiba Siglo IV, Partagas Serie D. 4, Bolivar Belicosos Finos, H. Upmann Magnum 46, Montecristo Nr. 2's, Punch Punch, Saint Luis Rey coronas and Sancho Panza Non Plus all have WONDERFUL flavor profiles that I would THOROUGHLY ENJOY if they were only legal. If you should ever come across an illegal Cuban cigar, you should call the BATF immediately. If you don't happen to have their phone number on you, you could help America by destroying the contriband yourself. I recommend burning it. Oops, forgot to add that if the cigars are new manufacture, you may have to secure them in a safe place, with proper climate control, (65% humidity & no more than 70-75 degrees F) for up to TWO years before you can be assured of their complete destruction.

Jesse Ventura (our Governor) was recently on a trip down to Cuba...He brought back a few boxes of Cuban cigars. I would imagine that they were a "gift" from Castro, so that makes it OK for Jesse to have them...Right?

Strangely enough, Congress exempted itself from these types of things, probably true for governors who may have to enterain congressmen too.

Cubans are overated. I generally prefer dominicans although I had a Cuban Montecristo in BC, Canada that was so good I almost needed a roach clip to finish it. The real deal is that a premium cigar will taste like crap without proper temperature and humidity storage conditions. IMHO...most medium priced cigars taste pretty damn good when stored properly. I have been quite disapointed by some of the "cigar stars" both cuban and non from hotel humidors. A good cigar shop will have a proper humidor so depending on what your climate is like you may need to light em up soon after purchase. That is, until you build your walk in...
