You can't buy Cuban cigars legally at any US cigar store. That's because it's been illegal to import or possess any Cuban exports, including cigars, since 1963. It is also illegal to buy Cuban cigars from an online cigar catalog or a foreign cigar shop where Cuban cigars are legal and have them shipped to the US. If you're caught, you'll pay big money and be subject to jail time. Instead, choose a Honduran or Dominican cigars, which are legal and offer just as good a smoke. You can also choose a Nicaraguan cigar, which is one of the faster growing imports and recently exceeded Dominican cigar imports into the US.
