    They’re a lot more strict with what you can leave the country though unbanded

    In Cuba yes, over here expect to pay the same prices as any other comparable Cubans

    Yeah I meant in Cuba, for me itís much more about the experience and memories than anything but you canít do that out of Cuba.

    But as a cigar lover Iím always intrigued to try something new

    its a few years old so no doubt there are some errors...


    • Alejandro Gonzalez Arias || Hotel Comodoro Cigar Shop at 3ra Ave. & Calle 84, Playa || Replaced Santos. Word is good on his sticks.
    • Is this the roller known as Alex? ask as I can't see his name listed elsewhere. I have had some of Alex's & there were all excellent.
    • Leopoldina Gutierrez aka 'La China' || Partagas LCDH at Calle Industria #520, Centro Habana || Great personality, excellent roller. Get whatever you can. She can't roll as much as she used to.I have been to the Party LCDH a couple of times, no rollers there at the time. This is another problem when just visiting on a holiday, like the weather you have to be lucky to catch people so try not to set your heart on seeing anyone in particular. They might have some customs that they might tell you a certain roller made but of course if you didn't see them roll them then your just taking a punt.
    • Amaury, and Reynol || Club Havana LCDH at 5ta Ave. between Calle 188-192, Playa || Worth the visit for his Monsdales alone. His new Robusto Largo is also a winner. No roller there on my only visit.
    • Reynaldo Gonzalez & Jorge || Conde de Villanueva LCDH at Mercaderes #202 corner of Lamparilla, Habana Vieja || Another master roller. Known for rolling monster sized cigars. Full bodied blends.Reynaldo is excellent & he's your man if you prefer very large RG's. I bought half a dozen of half a dozen different shapes & sizes, my fav was the Salomones.
    • Juanita Ramos Guerra || Hotel Melia Cohiba LCDH, at Paseo Ave. between Calle 1 & 3, Vedado || Ask about her Elefantes. Short, chubby cigars, packed with flavour.Haven't met her but have tried several of her cigars, everyone a gem.
    • Milagro Morales || Hotel Nacional LCDH at Calle 21 & O, Vedado || Unknown to me, but a stop for a smoke here is a must.Been to the Nacional every visit & there was a different roller on duty each time. Didn't try their Ciustoms but that's mainly because I am always with MLW & more concerned with finding something more unusual & aged. Both VHTF in Havana. My last great find was a couple of 50 cabs of Boli CG's 2007 (in 2011). I had already bought my allowance by then (as I had been assured by every shop that I would find one so I hid them at the back & told Moon Dancer about them. He went out 4/52 later & one was still there! And dear reader, we spilt the cab & I am still enjoying my half!
    • Cueto || El Morro Castle. La Habana del Este, Havana, Cuba || Roller of the world's longest cigar (268.4 ft Guinness record).It wasn't until our last visit to Havana (Nov '18), that we finally got to cross the river & visit el Morro but I never saw a tabac or someone rolling. The Lighthouse itself was closed that day & they had smashed all the lighthouse glass & it was lying at the base. I assumed it was closed for safety reasons but the next day when we sailed out of the harbour, I saw there were tourists up there taking photos of our ship leaving! Like I say, you need some luck on a holiday.
