President Obama took office in January and immediately got busy in bailing out our ailing economy. We know that it is only a matter of time until he will lift the embargo and we could all go to Cuba and bring cigars, it simply has to happen, the sooner the better. If you ask me I’d tell you that actually we anticipate a NEW CIGAR BOOM that will occur in The U.S.A. with the arrival of the first legal Cuban cigar.
UNTIL THEN WE’RE NOT SELLING CUBAN CIGARS.
IT’S AGAINST THE LAW.Once it is legal this page will display Cuban cigars for sale, until then we’re inviting you to use the cigar info in this page to prepare yourself for the POST CASTRO CIGAR AGE. The Cuban cigar story began when Christopher Columbus found Cuba during his first voyage in October 1492 and sent two men – Rodrigo de Xerez and Luis de Torres - to explore the island and meet with the natives. They introduced the Spaniards to the after-dinner practice of inhaling the smoke of burned leaves into the nose through a Y-shaped device called a “tobacco.” The leaves and the “pipe” were taken back to Spain and over the next two centuries, the process was refined into the cigar we know today, produced primarily in Seville, Spain under monopoly of the Spanish Crown. Although there was tobacco grown on other Caribbean islands by the mid-1500s, Cuba was well established as the headquarters of the tobacco trade and cigars produced there carried the same notoriety they do today.
