Unless Habanos/Altadis is very careful, post-embargo cuban cigar quality will experience the same dive that non-Cubans experienced during the cigar boom.

More pricy and quality would suffer but I' think it would only be for a short time. (I' hope).

The United States' position on Cuba remains a mystery to most other countries in the world. How is it possible that the US will recognise and trade with China but not Cuba. Or the former Soviet Union.
The nukes in Cuba were a Soviet response to the NATO nukes which had been deployed in Turkey (on the doorstep of the Soviet Union). It was the then typical cold war game of which NATO and the United States were active participants.
The other argument that is usually cited by people in favour of the embargo deals with the property confiscated during the Cuban revolution. As far as I can tell, the government of the United States provided no compensation to those people who lost property as a result of the American revolution.
I don't mean to offend anyone but just my 2 cents.

If there were enough unhappy Cubans there would be a revolution and when Castro dies there probably will be. Like it or not there are many in Cuba that are very happy with the way things are. Is it simple and antiquated by our standards but some people like that. Even with Castro gone things wont change overnight. Put democracy in place and you have 11 million people that wouldnt know how to handle it. Look at Russia. Its a much larger scenario granted, but, is everyone in Russia happy about having democracy? The money isnt exactly pouring in there either, or what is is going to the mafia. Peoples lives in russia havent changed much and thats because it takes time to implement democracy. If Cuba opened tomorrow it could be 10-20 years before there was some sort of normal democracy there.
Just my opinion of course
