    Spain gets nice shiny stuff every year as well.
    The UK is not out of the EU free trade agreement until the end of this year. You are still allowed 200 cigars each from mainland Spain (not the Canaries) for personal use before any questions are asked.

    Live Spanish prices here.

    Within Europe there’s no official limit currently but they’re meant to be for personal use so a couple hundred isn’t unreasonable

    I have been told that they don't ask questions until you reach around 400 for personal use. I'm sure a few members on here have come pretty close to that. In fact if you buy puritos or clubs that's very easily achievable. If you buy duty free in the DR; where of course you are limited, they supply it in clear plastic carrier bags and I've followed people through the green lane at Gatwick brazenly walking through with a 1000 cigarettes without being challenged.

    If you can back up why you’re buying them and don’t buy like a smuggler I’m sure you’ll be okay. If you’ve got 20 of the same box they’ll probably start asking questions yes but if you can show you collect know what you’re talking about and buy in a way that makes sense for someone who smokes I wouldn’t worry too much.

    I’d probably start getting nervous if more than half of my suitcase was full with them!

    (Copied from another thread 06.04.2020)
    *Well here's the thing Simon..... as you know, it's the Spanish government who set the prices..... me and my new lady were wanting to go to Barcelona for a city break in may..... so, when this thing lifts, I'll be going there! Saying that, the hotel in Torremolinos ran day trips by coach to Morocco (tangiers, 85euros), Gibraltar (25euros), Seville and the Alhambra in Granada (both 50euros each)..... so it's a great place to explore southern Spain! I'd say most hotels in this region would offer the same thing.....

    check out this cigar club in tangiers:
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/categ...8226756137777/

    a quick google search for 'estancos in seville' brought up loads of results..... all with reviews and photos.....

    if I'm not breaking any rules, I could attach the pdf of the latest Spanish prices for all cigars in their government controlled 'estancos'..... they don't post abroad anyway, and it's for the benefit of those intending to buy cigars while on holiday...... so I shouldn't be breaking any forum rules! I'll wait on a ruling on that.... lol
