Topic: Now OT Cigars Was: Introduction and help request (18 msgs / 329 lines)
1) From: Jarred Vallozzi
Smoking cigars on a college student budget was tough, and I made it a goal
of mine to find the best values available.  The every day cigar turned out
to be the Hoyo de Monterrey Maduro Majestic (under $2 a stink out of a
bundle), Consuegra Rothschild #9, and for a splurge an Arturo Fuente (I
never settled on a single line).

It is illegal as of October 2005 to even smoke a Cuban cigar!  The govt
changed the rules very quietly - for the worse!

there are coffee cigars from Mayorga...which oddly enough was the coffee
that started me down this slippery slope.

Watching Transformers with my kids - not the same as in the theater - but

http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/programs/cuba/cuba.shtmlHere is an excerpt from the treasury page
The question is often asked whether United States citizens
or permanent resident aliens of the United States may
legally purchase Cuban origin goods, including tobacco and
alcohol products, in a third country for personal use
outside the United States. The answer is no. The
Regulations prohibit persons subject to the jurisdiction of
the United States from purchasing, transporting, importing,
or otherwise dealing in or engaging in any transactions
with respect to any merchandise outside the United States
if such merchandise (1) is of Cuban origin; or (2) is or
2 has been located in or transported from or through Cuba; or
(3) is made or derived in whole or in part of any article
which is the growth, produce or manufacture of Cuba. Thus,
in the case of cigars, the prohibition extends to cigars
manufactured in Cuba and sold in a third country and to
cigars manufactured in a third country from tobacco grown
in Cuba.

It used to be that you could order them from Spain and if you got busted at
customs they would confiscate the cigars (usually the vendor would take off
the bands and put them in cellophane and keep the box - and put Producto de
Espana or something like that on it - and then send you the bands/box later
if you wanted it - not that I would ever do anything like order cigars from
Spain or the Netherlands or anything like that...).
Now if you get caught it is punishable by jail and up to 10k...juice ain't
worth the squeeze anymore.

Thanks, Sean, this is good to know.
I guess the next time someone gives me some Cohibas I'll just have to do the right thing and burn them.

Wow!  I have been out of the loop on this for a few years. I have a couple 
of cooladors, pretty full from going nuts about 5 years ago and there they 
sit.
Punch Punch is my favorite.  I think I have one left.

So you have a pile of cigars just sitting/resting/waiting to be smoked?

I am about the same, two coolers and a few humidors - when I lived in
Florida I smoked two a day - one on the way to work, one on the way home.
Temps and roads to work in the everglades were perfect for it.
Too cold in VA where we just moved from during the winter, same for NC where
we live now - and I ride an MC most days, hard to keep em lit at 45-55
mph...and I used a full face helmet :-)

Sean,
It is funny you should mention Mayorga coffee.  It was the first coffee I
ever purchased whole bean, and the rest you can guess.

The owner is a great guy, he sent me like 50lbs of free coffee when I was
deployed in 2004 - it actually is decent coffee...just way over roasted now
that I know better.  He had some great blends.
