Hi everybody; in 2 weeks I'll go to Cuba for 10 days. I smoke cigars, but I'm not an expert and I like medium to full body cigars.. any suggestion about what to buy in Havana?
Thank you

    A lot of people will probably recommend the Cohibas (if you can find them), but If I were going to Cuba, or asking people to get cigars there for me, the only brand I'd buy is San Cristobal de la Habana in a smaller (under 50) ring size. The best cigar I've ever smoked, period. Medium strength, creamy, malty flavor and overloaded with the unique "carbonated fizz" characteristic of great Cuban cigars.

    Go to the Hotels and buy from rollers there. Unless your buying from a Habanos SA shop you are probably gonna get fakes. If it looks to good to be true price wise, it probably is. You are getting a chance of a lifetime to visit and smoke seegars from some of the greatest rollers in the world.

    Do a search of custom rollers in Cuba and you see that many offer great smokes that are well priced. 

    You can get cc's anywhere today but to meet and buy from some of the rollers below is not an everyday experience. Enjoy the trip.

    I would highly recommend Jorge Lopez, Juanita Guerra and Alex Gonzalez.

    Cohibas in the glass top are best.
