So, a friend and I went to the local cigar shop today to buy some "victory cigars" to celebrate a successful year of college, and the guy there sold us two "Cuban" cigars. We were of course curious as to how they could legally sell Cubans.

Supposedly, the tobacco in the cigars is pre-embargo (pre-1960's for all you uneducated folk). The rest of the materials, leaf and all, were also Cuban, but the actually making of the cigars was done in the Dominican Republic. This cigar shop was also one of only a hundred stores in the country that can sell these.

Do they still count as Cubans even though they were rolled in the D.R.? Do they count as Cubans without the "other ingredients" in them?

i think that since they were "manufactured" in DR, they arent considered real Cubans even though the tobacco is cuban. i dont know this for a fact and im basing it on nothing except my own guess.

Let's say two men meet for lunch. After lunch they decide to smoke Cigars.

Man#1 "I brought these back from cuba, I hid them in a can of coffee"

Man#2 "(insert long story from cigar shop)"

Which would you rather be smoking?

Simple. If they were not rolled on the white thighs of cuban virgins, they are not cubans.

Man, now I can't remember where I read/heard that. -_-

Oh man....

Btw, you should have learned the Cuban stuff in High school at least!

Any moron can make it in college dude, so dont try to wear it like a big diamond ring under everyone's nose! It's snobbish!

Yes, I went to college.... big fuggin deal!

You got suckered. You probably payed $20 a pop for $5 Dominican cigars. The chances that the tobacco that you smoked ever saw Cuba is about 1 in 10000000000000000000.

Didn't they teach you to heed your own advice in college?

No?

Ah well.

Actually, they were only $4, which had me a little suspicious. Then again, I'm poor, so I didn't argue much.

Aside from the fact that I think cigars are horrible, both in aroma and in factors of health, the only question I have is..

Did you enjoy your victory cigars?

And congratulations on surviving a year of college! :)

My favorite definition of diplomacy (or at least a diplomat) is this: A good diplomat can tell you to go to **** and make you look forward to the trip.

Your sig just reminded me of that. I had to share. :P

Heheh $4 Cubans. It didn't strike you as odd that someone stored tobacco in a moisture controlled envoiorment for 30 years and then shipped it to the DR,hand rolled it into a cigar and then sold it to you....for $4?

The important thing was that you liked the cigar.
