just read through some of this thread and it's pretty entertaining, I get the idea ha ha
We don't discuss Cuban sources on this board. Since you're in Australia you shouldn't have an issue finding legitimate sources locally or from people in your neck of the woods that smoke.Well I live In Australia
so no problem in getting cubans here although the import duties are disgusting. In saying that can anyone direct me to a few cuban stores ? or should i be posting somewhere else ?
What Is A Customs Duty?Customs Duty is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders. The purpose of Customs Duty is to protect each country's economy, residents, jobs, environment, etc., by controlling the flow of goods, especially restrictive and prohibited...www.cbp.gov
Here is a link where you can find the info. Essentially $800 worth of goods duty free from cuba including 1 liter of rum and 100 cigars. More than this and you will pay a duty tax of 4% the value of the goods
I would personally only purchase from Las Casas del hubanos storesAs this discussion is taking place in the Sources section. I will kindly remind folks, it is imperative to...TRUST YOUR SOURCE. If you know nothing about Cuban cigars and come back to the US with garbage in a glass top or that you acquired from someone selling you on a story that they know the person’s, cousin’s, mailman’s, niece, works at the factory, you are smoking fakes.
What problem are you referring to befreebern?

Oh ok. I haven't been to Cuba yet, but I'm planning on going soon. I will have to figure all this out. My research thus far showed the safest way to avoid fakes was to shop at the official stores. Obviously I have alot of research to do.If I were you, I'd stay away from "Las Casas del Hubanos" stores. I'd say those stores sell 100% fake anything, if that's their business name.
