Hey guys! I live in the waayyy Northern Suburbs of Chicago, and decided I wanted to check out this forum.

I currently run two cigar forums, and I wanted to relax for once with some rum drinkers.

One of the things I specifically was looking forward to was trading some premium cigars for rum and I have no idea how to go about that or what the etiquette is. Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction!

Thanks and a votre sante!

Welcome to the forums. Trading rum unless you are licensed is basically illegal and not encouraged on this forum. If you find yourself doing that activity in your own home, that's your business, but this isn't the place to initiate illegal activity.
Thanks for understanding

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Good to know Edward! I actually didn't know that. Very interesting!

Well I will be enjoying this community regardless.
