    This is how everything and everyone operates in Cuba. Likely there was no allowance either and they were just stolen. Everyone (and I mean everyone) steals at their job in Cuba an resells in the black market. Currently have a friend visiting who described how she pays a commission to the power company guy to rig her meter so she only pays a fraction of the cost, and got caught once by 3 inspectors and just bribed the inspectors. I don’t visit Cuba for personal reasons, but if I did I’d much rather buy this way than just giving the money to the government, so kudos to you.

    haha only you would buy cigars that you don’t smoke. Great read.

    Having worked in cigars, I’ve seen truly terrible bundles of discard tobacco sold this way. You have no assurance of quality in many aspects that make a Cuban cigar great. I’ve smoked some truly awful Cuban sourced cigars: whether inconsistent in construction, blend or leaf quality. You may have purchased floor cuttings. I’d bite in this deal if I could pocket cigars from the floor and knew which brand they were. Otherwise, I would expect these to be a total crap shoot. Still, a fun adventure and if one doesn’t smoke right, toss it and light another. Still a good time.
