x-post from cigar thread



i just got back from cuba. saving some for friends, taking offers on the rest. to the best of my ability i've identified them as:

(4) - cohiba robusto - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/19739
(15) - cohiba siglo ii - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/16454
(3) - cohiba piramides extra - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/18975
(1) - romeo y julieta churchill - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/19177
(2) - montecristo 2 - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/19839
(2) - montecristo 1 - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/19180
(2) - montecristo 4 - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/19840
(1) - montecristo double edmundo - https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/detail/source/search/note_id/18595

plus 2 fake cohibas.

all the ones in the long list are real. bought in havana and trinidad. i think cohibas are sold in the US? but those are from the dominican republic and not cuba.

As I mentioned in the cigars thread, I don't know if private sales of legally bought Cubans are OK in the U.S. so, please take any sales/trade talk to PM.

Very nice cigars, Mike. Down here Cubans go for $20ish each if you can find them. Probably more in Chicago.

Yes, you can buy Cohibas at cigar shops but they aren't Cubans.

I am 99.9% sure you can't sell Cuban cigars in the states no matter how they are obtained. Even with the embargo changes it is still illegal to buy or sell Cubans in the states. Just an FYI [MENTION=4746]Flyn[/MENTION].

these aren't for sale, but they are available for trade, and i'll trade you things like some bitcoin commodities or maybe some other things for them if you PM me a good trade.

wish i bought at least one more for a gift. this one's already being gifted.

iirc after the revolution they nationalized bacardi in cuba which had/still has a nice building there, and bacardi is still in a legal battle for the brand.

we left with absolutely no money. less than a dollar between 3 people. that's in cuban money actually, the last USDs we had we gave to a guy to take us to the right terminal - since we were dropped off at the wrong one and it wasn't really walkable.

Not knowing anything about cigars and having a bachelor party in April for a guy that would really appreciate these what would you recommend.

I need 4. Also, if we were to trade something how do I keep these good til then?

there are little water packets you can buy. i could trade you 4 of the cohibas you see there and even given you a packet as i will no longer need it. ideally they'd be kept in some container with the packet at 72 degrees. i think they'd be fine in a zip-loc.

in 2 weeks i'm leaving the country for 4 months, so we'd need to meet in the shorter term to make something happen. i'm up in grayslake and work from home so i don't venture down south too much.

my buddy just came back from Cuba, stopped there while on a cruiz. sitting on my desk this AM was a Romeo Y Julieta Romeo#3.

this weather needs to warm up before i even attempt to smoke it. not sure how long it will keep tho.
