    Reynaldo ar the Conde Villanueva had the Connie B and the Partagas ELs were at the LCDH Partagas. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  3. I froze everything. Custom rolls first, then the boxes. Just got everything put away. My humidor is definitely full, but I will go back as soon as we are able. We've been talking about it since and even my wife who only enjoys the occasional cigar would go back. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    The Partagas are Culebras, if you're talking about the ones in the lower left hand corner. And there are no stupid questions. lol I literally just did the same thing a couple hours ago to someone else.

    What are the singles with the shaggy feet in the center in front? I definitely short changed myself on customs. Next time I'm going with a list of customs I need to try instead of just winging it.
  6. Based on the responses here, clearly I was. lol I'm very glad to hear that though. Sounds like I need to figure out when I can swing it in late fall or early spring.
  7. Absolutely agree 100%. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  8. No it definitely wasn't late when I arrived, it was closer to lunch time. My only thought was that while I wasn't in a tshirt, I was dressed in shorts and had been touring havana all morning with Jorge so perhaps I was too casually dressed. And it could have simply been luck of the draw as to who was working the register as well. Which is what I sort of lean towards more than anything. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks @Corylax18. Good to know that if the wife wants to go check out a school that at the end of the day it's not that big a deal. I know I'm already looking forward to going back.
  10. I'm in the process of freezing mine now. Did the custom rolls first and now the boxes are in the freezer. It's a process, but safety first.
  11. I could have posted this question in my little Cuba thread but thought maybe on it's own it would garner more responses. So, since things are "iffy" right now in the States for traveling to Cuba, how often are people going? I've seen that many here have gone multiple times, but is that over a few years? Getting a Visa once was a breeze, but is anyone making multiple trips per year to "support the Cuban people"? It's actually a great value to get down there and there's a lot of history to check out in addition to the cigars and rum, but I'm wondering if any red flags start going up if you make more than one trip in a calendar year? My wife is a teacher and would like to revisit Havana once their school year is in session and visit one of the schools, and I definitely wouldn't mind tagging along, but obviously I don't want to be put on some sort of list where every time we fly we are "randomly" selected to have our stuff searched, etc.
  12. I just realized most of the pictures are on my wife's phone and that Jorge took quite a few as well that we are waiting on. Random shots around Havana, plus a picture of some of the tobacco leaves used from Yolanda's shop. The last shot is from our balcony overlooking the Plaza Vieja. I of course picked when it was raining and empty to take the photo. lol And if you're wondering about the purplish tint in the picture, well that's the view through the tint in Jorge's cab, not some silly filter I used.

  13. We were talking about it last night, and really feel like Havana is actually a great "bang for your buck" little vacation. There really is a lot to see and do, there's tons of interesting history, even if you didn't enjoy cigars. That being said, while you can find Cuban cigars all over the world, there was just something about going around to the various LCDH's and seeing what was available and watching Yolanda and Reynaldo roll a cigar was a real treat. The first visit is definitely a great primer for a return trip, so you know better what you want to do and where you want to go.
  14. Yes, it is off the lobby and down to the left if I'm recalling correctly. They sell books there, etc and had the ashtrays sitting out at a little counter.
