A share is expected in return for my silence. The amount of rum seems a bit meager for so many cigars, but we'll work out the details later.

Nina is ready with a plausible denial.

The scuttlebutt on the cigars is that they are all Fauxhibas. But the rum is the real deal.

I can think of far worse offenses to be caught in the act of doing.

The funny thing is, its a lot easier to buy Cuban cigars in the US than it is in Canada via mail order. Its now gotten to the point where some foreign mail-order services, will no longer deliver to Canada due to the higher mail scrutiny, but will deliver to the US with a guarantee of shipment and without duty. Long live the embargo LOL.

A list of international retailers is available from Cigarcyclopedia (buyer beware).

No doubt. This guy has been... for years trying to peddle his fireworks approaching people who didn't solicit his business on forums such as this via PM offering to send sample packages of rare exotic Cuban smokes - supposedly rejects and over-runs right off the rolling tables.

I'm also told he had a full scale workshop at his house complete with bands, warranty seals, box making equipment and basically everything necessary to duplicate final presentation.
