For Cubans Id be very wary of seeking them out as there are fakes all over the place. If you must, seek out a Casa de Habano shop (the Cuban Govt oulet). They will be legit and they are not cheap. Plan to shell out close to $20 or more per stick. If you dont know what your doing the whole Cuban thing aint worth getting ripped off over. Of note the letter of the law says you cant buy them even over seas.
They are way over priced and then you find out the are way over yukky to.
Learned that leasson.
