A “Newbie’s” Guide to Habanos Vendors

Well now, after smoking NCs for about 2 years and deciding to take the plunge into CCs. I started surfing the net and reading this and that and lurked in a couple forums and noticed a tendency to keep the cards close to the vest for sources which is understandable especially when dealing with an embargo plagued country. Since no one is going to give up a source to a new guy, I found a source online which luckily turned out to be be legit.

I stumbled upon this forum and after lurking and reading just about all the old posts, decided to join. What really caught my eye was this forum seemed to be average joes who love cigars and are willing to share information without being a bunch of elitist frat boy *******, (I was a frat boy in college) btw. It just seemed like a good mix to me. Hopefully I won't be deemed a "Wanker or Toseer" and will continue to be educated in this "thing of ours". Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I'm going out to finish the rest of my HDM 2007 EL and a couple fingers of bourbon.

OK enough BS, I joined because of the fishing sub forum.............. :D

A “Newbie’s” Guide to Developing a Relationship with Your Habanos Vendor For the Cuban cigar consumer, the vendor is arguably the most important link in a long chain that begins in the fields of Cub

Very good post. I know personally its a trust thing for me. When you get a call from some long haired fellow in Australia on his dime to BS a bit that make a connection in a positive way. Prez...I hav

Thank you for this Shrink, even though this was written in 2007.....doesn't seem like much if anything has changed. I am very new to the world of Habanos......not cigars mind you. I have printed this

Thanks for the very thoughtful post! I guess I am really privileged/ lucky to find FOH before I made any bad buys from bad vendors.

Wow... this is very useful. I've been on some other forums (not naming names) but this place is definitely different. Why are people so open, honest, and laid back on this site? I've found my online cigar home :) Cheers to a good group of 'mates' !!

I have to agree with the other members and their posts. I found this place throug a search and like reading the reviews and the other great information found here.

What's even better is the video reviews by Prez and Ken, a couple of regular guys, enjoying a cigar and a glass or bottle of 2 of wine. Who can't trust guys like this.

Fantastic information!

I haven't actually made any purchases yet but I've read a lot of vendor reviews on cigarinspector.com (not sure if it's cool to post that but it's how I found the Czar and FoH), although I don't trust all of the reviews it's better than nothing.

What an excellent post, super advice.

I was in exactly the same boat as most of you others, looking for a legit vendor. I did not want to waste too much money and get ripped off. I made the almost criminal mistake of asking in some other forum if anyone knew how to check if a particular vendor was any good. The nastiness was what really bothered me, but I'm a big boy and ignored it. Some very nice guy passed on a site that just reviews places, I sampled around, found this wonderful place and really it was not too much of a hassle.

Take your time and sample first. If it seems too good to be true, well you know the answer to that one.
