Russell is dead on. I am a fellow aficionado and know for a fact that 99% of the "Cuban" cigars sold at every single shop that is not a Casa de Habano are fakes. Assuming that you are looking for a good deal on Honduran or Dominican cigars, forget about it. In the states we pay rediculously low prices that I bet you couldn't beat even if you went to Honduras or the DR. So buy one or two cigars on those islands if you run out, but do as Russell said and bring them with you.
