    Question for everyone: I am leaving for France soon to study abroad, and I'd like to bring a couple of pipes and a small supply of tobacco with me. I'm clueless about the regulations of French customs for bringing small amounts of tobacco for personal use. I plan on checking all of it in my...

    When my brain actually works it is usually in an odd sort of way. For those whose cigars have gone missing or have suffered actual seizure do you find that you lose any particular brand or is it completely random with no weighting giving to a particular label? I will start...Cohibas (one...

    This isn't really cigar related, as it is a book that I'm waiting for and not cigars. I had the book mailed to me via Royal Mail and according to the RM website it was transferred to the US on 1/11/11. I'm assuming it had to go through customs, does anyone have an idea if it should have taken...

    Gotta say, it simply amazes me the outstanding people I meet on my many cigar adventures. I met a friend from another board while in Havana in March, and I guess I let on how much I enjoy Reynaldo's custom cigars. Found these beauties on my front porch when I got home from work on Friday. Cheers...

    Sorry for the alarm! I didn't think and posted that stupid title without realising that some (most) of you would assume much worse news than mine.. I'm in Australia so my letter means I have to pay big $$$ to the government to enjoy my smokes. Came home from work today in anticipation of my...

    A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favour?" "Of course child. What may I do for you?" "Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my Mother's birthday that is unopened and well over the Customs limits, and...

    So I recently placed an order online for some Cigars from a vendor. The package arrived today with $250 worth of Tax attached to them. This is close to twice the amount I paid for the cigars alone. I am in Alberta right now (~185% provincial tabacco tax on taxable price... which is 1.3 times the...

    check it out on CA website. Maybe if he was more famous he could get away with it. I am guessing he took a flight from cuba directly to the usa and no stops in mexico or the d.r. as much as i dont like him, that really sucks and never wish the waste of quality cigars.
