MIAMI Attention U.S. travelers going abroad: You now can bring home all the Cuban rum and cigars you want.

The Obama administration announced Friday a new round of executive actions designed to increase trade and travel with the communist island. And this is the one many Americans have been waiting for no more restrictions on the island's famed rum and cigars.

Under the new rules, which go into effect Monday, travelers can purchase unlimited quantities of Cuban rum and cigars in any country where they are sold so long as they are for personal consumption. Sorry American couch potatoes: You can't order Cuban rum and cigars online and have them shipped to your home.

US rum is better and I bet the quality
of Cuban cigars has gone down the toilet.

At least in the near future they won't be able
to supply the increased demand I bet. You'll
be smoking Cuban saw dust mixed with shit
tobacco leaves.

:biggrin-new: I doubt I've ever smoked one.

And I didn't know Cuban rum was anything approaching 'popular'.

Sorry, Barry and Fidel... No Sale.

I've had Cuban cigars I've bought on vacation
in the Caribbean, they were nothing special.

Same here. I'm not a huge aficionado, but would occasionally share one with the former Mrs. And on the golf course. I've heard that the ones that are "Cuban style", made in the Caribbean and sold in the U.S. have conditioned Americans to that flavor & taste.

The Cuban cigars of 1950's & '60's were very, very, very good!

People around Detroit have had access to Cuban cigars via Canada for a while. I bet more people still go over to get 222s (low-dose codeine sold OTC) than to get Cuban cigars. I don't know anyone who smokes cigars. My dad used to, but gave it up a while ago when he stopped drinking.

One of the White House interns might say the same thing about the current product.
