What are some names of good cuban cigars?

My husband has told me that he LOVES cuban cigars, and I want to get him some for Christmas. Any names that tend to be the best sellers or are generally good? I would ask him but it would give it away that I am getting them for him 🙂

Depending on where you live you may have a problem finding them. There are so many counterfeit cigars out there you could get ripped off.
Play it safe. Find out what kind of smoke he likes mild, strong etc. Go to a good smoke shop and ask for suggestions

What brand of cuban cigars are the real deal?

What brand of cuban cigars are the real deal? Like Cohibas or what?

try Sigaro toscano (Tuscan cigar), very different from the Havana style

Montecristo are the best I hear they are all made by the cuban gov. but Montecristo is famus in Gangster films and also in the hip-hop world. The govoner of California smokes them also.

What are cuban cigars supposed to taste like?

I want to know if i have a good source for buying tobacco, what do cuban cigars taste like? Compare them to cigarettes or other cheaper cigars.

Thanks to Uncle Fidel and his communist regime, most of the good cigar makers have left Cuba to set up shop in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Costa Rica. A few others.
That being said, the very wide ranging tastes and flavors of cigars grown in different soils will depend on your personal preference. You’ll simply have to experiment with different filler/binder/wrapper combinations.
Try this: http://www.cigaradvisor.com/. That should get you started. Cigar smoking is not a habit, but a hobby. It will take research and trail & error to find your niche in the cigar world. Good luck, and happy smoking!
