just returned from a long weekend in St Kitts, visiting family. First off it's a beautiful island, nothing to do but beautiful none the less. HOTTHOOOTTTT, so hot that i honestly got a sunburn on parts of my body i never knew i had, it was HOT. ok now to the cigars

there's essentially 2 stores which sell qbns, the other's are all fake. I popped my head into a few shops to look, who advertised "Tobacco" on the doors and saw the unthinkable, multiple glass top boxes of fohiba esplendidos!! the two shops are SmokeNBooze and Driftwood Duty Free
Smoke and Booze has a modest selection, prices are canadian ish, kinda high but the cigars are in immaculate condition. also have tons of liquor.
Driftwood had an awesome selection at duty free prices, i mean they have tons of stuff. they also had tons of tobacco beetles. My fiance' and i selected the cigars one by one, examining each closely. The store owner came in and said it flatly "you have ruined much of your inventory, let me give you a lesson on humidity" not that i am a pro, but this guy was an idiot. I was able to get some excellant sticks though, some EL stuff as well, and after his lesson he gave me a free stick. here's what i got's for the tastin'

monte #2 esp.
monte #3
partagas #3(smoked it right away, wow it was good)
upmann epi#1
RyJ church's
Partagas 898
cuaba exclusivos
siglio v's(smoked one in the casino, burnt my fingers nicely)
diplo #2

yeah, that is basically the rundown. all in all a great trip and a lesson in humidity, which already has freakin me out about my own humidity further they i already was.

Glad to hear you had a fun trip.

As for beetles, I got a shipment of partagas shorts. I found a beetle hole in one of them. Long story short I tapped out the poop and complained until my buddy offed to take it off my hands. I smoke a good one and he took the poopy one (LOL). He told me there was not a taste difference at all. I don't know if he was lying or really could not tell. I think next time I'll keep on to it and smoke it myself.
