I brought back Cuban cigars, and always do. I know it's illegal but I'm not selling them and only bring back 1 or 2. I usually just take the band off them so they can't be identified as Cuban. But have never even been inspected.
Usually bring a few back too and never had any problems. We also get them from Canada and no one ever says a word. My best "source" is our priest - brings BOXES back from Canada -who would suspect him?
My brother will buy a box of cubans - take bands off and mail them home from next port. He also asks for an empty box from non-cubans and puts them in there. Like Thomas - he is buying them for himself and not to resell.
That's right trcruiser. I too wish we could lift this embargo. Now that Fidel isn't being backed by the USSR he is hardly a threat to our national security and hasn't really been for 25 years. Bring on the Cuban cigars!!!
