Need to pick up a couple of real Cubans. Some of you guys have done it on line. Any tips? Good sites?

Be careful, 99% sell fakes.  Cubans are not worth cost anymore compared to domestics. They had a massive price increase not long ago.

 

HABANOS, S.A. TO INTRODUCE NEW INTERNATIONAL PRICING POLICY

Cuban cigar prices are expected to substantially increase in the coming days. According to reliable sources, Habanos S.A. intends to introduce a new international price homogenization policy, similar to that applied by global luxury brands.

The bad news for smokers and connoisseurs of the acclaimed Habanos cigar is that the reference market to be used for price benchmarking will be none other than Hong Kong.  As most of our readers will know, Hong Kong is probably one of the highest priced markets for Habanos in the world.

The main brands that will be impacted with the new policy will be Cohiba and Trinidad as well as the Linea de Oro line from the Romeo y Julieta and the Linea 1935 from Montecristo. When the new policy is implemented, these products will see their worldwide sales prices in line with those charged in Hong Kong.

The other Cuban brands (classified as Global, Value, Volume and Other) are also expected to undergo an adjustment, albeit likely on a lower scale than those expected for the lines described above. However, it is certain we will see much higher prices at all markets served by the company’s exclusive distributors.

We spoke to some specialists and they are concerned this policy may make the sales price unfeasible in some markets as in some cases prices might be readjusted up to 150%. They also said that this scenario might result in the closure of some La Casa del Habano stores around the World.

They’re pretty good. I try to have a few around for when I feel like something different.

Compared to Enigma, bit sweet and fruity? 

But in that category, I’m liking Glenfiddich Grand Cru bit more

 

bought the enigma at JFK duty free.  Heard limited run. Maybe will pick up one on the way in.

Cortez Maple Bacon Bourbon to end the day.

 

Not a big flavored cigar guy but this has such a small hint of flavor to be nice and tasty.
