I dont know, but I bet it will be better than what we get now. My question though is what is going to happen with the company names? I mean, all the companies like RyJ and Cohiba stole the names of their cigars from their cuban counterparts. What will happen with that?Jeff said:I wonder what the prices of ISOMs will be after the embargo is lifted?
Amen brother, on the China/Cuba comparison.SeanGAR said:Castro? I'm more concerned about the Red Chinese....they have nukes, a chip on their shoulder, and they're psycho. Next time you buy something, take a look at the label. Do it daily for a week....then tell me that Red China isn't a threat. Castro is such small potatos that it blows my mind the US gives a rats a$$ about him....oh yeah....Cuban-American votes in Florida...I remember now why Castro is supposedly relevant....
YES, He confiscated all the farms when he took over and the Gov owns and gets most of the revenue from them. Called Communism.FunkyPorcini said:I have always wondered how the whole Cuban Cigar trade world rotates. If we buy a Cuban cigar is it money going directly into Castro's pockets and in turn funding his armies?
I did a brief Google search but was unsuccesful.

I feel like I need to make an educated decision.
I can relate and while I understand that if I was to let every belief I had dictate my purchases then I would spend most of my days trying to find goods that were not traced back to some sort of violation of those beliefs; I cannot do it.magno said:but I have resigned myself to being a hypocritical selfish cigar nut, and have resolved not to argue with a leftist about Cuba while smoking a Cuban cigar.
Can't buy a thrill baby, those guys are fantastic.magno said:It's good to see another Steely Dan fan around here.
I could justify it by saying the embargo isn't really hurting Cuba; they are, afterall, trading with every other western nation( I don't really believe this and actually think trade with the US would be highly beneficial for them)
