Default Anyone what/need anything from the great white north?

I'm leaving for Toronto in about 22 hours, any souvenir request? I'll probably be stopping in Niagara Falls also. Yes Cat, I remember your magnets. This goes for teh Dallas peeps also, seeing as though American decided to stop just short of Houston and make me wait in the abyss that is the Dallas airport. See you guys on the 5th.

Sure I'd be willing.. a couple of questions though, what is the limit for cigs? (I'm assuming it's the same as coming back from Mexico, 2 cartons) and I'm checking to see just how long I will be in Dallas.. looks like 2 hours.

serious? Is it really that much cheaper in Canada? I'm willing if you're willing to pick it up at the airport. What is the airport security like? Can you get past the checkpoint if you don't have a ticket? In Houston you can't get to the gate unless you have a ticket.. I forgot about that.

At DFW you can only get through security with a ticket. And those guys are A-NAL.

well.. I can purchase them in Canada, but they can't be brought across into the US unless things have changed since last October. I would if I could, but I don't think I can.

I wish I could remember the guy I got them from last time, he sent them to me in a box of old textbooks.

BTW, cuban cigars are overrated, the only appeal really is that they are illegal. There are damn good cigars out of Honduras, Jamaica and Miami. Oddly enough they all (even the ones from Cuba) use Conneticut wrappers, and the wrapper is where 90% of the flavor comes from.

I don't know where you got this from, but... what? The wrappers, unless flavored and aged in some sort of mixture (i.e. Black & Milds ), usually have the least amount of flavor, like 10%. The tobacco inside is what gives a cigar its body. That's why there are so many different mixtures, leading to different quality of cigars.

Wrappers come from Honduras, Morocco, Romania, Chad, even America. A Cuban has pre-embargo tobacco that contains some THC... that makes them illegal. For a good cigar that has some pre-embargo tobacco in it and are still legal in America, look for a Ghurka. Great smoke.

All wrappers of good cigars are aged (cured), some are shade grown, some aren't and have a little darker color. Conneticut provides wrapper tobbaco to almost all of the big time cigar houses. The other popular wrappers are Ecuadorian and Sumatran, but Conneticut has the lions share. The combination of wrapper and filler make the cigar what it is and defines the flavor of all of them. Easily the tastiest (or at least my current favorite) brand right now is La Gloria Cubana, which is out of Miami and uses (primarily) an Ecuadorian wrapper. Some lighter flavored cigars for you n00bs would be some Macanudos with a Conneticut shade wrapper, noted by it's lighter color and less "veins" for lack of a better term.

Oh, and what makes the cubans illegal is not the THC (myth anyways) but the fact that there is an embargo against Cuban goods in America (perhaps you've heard of this?).

I agree with you about the Glorias. I smoke the robustos and they are delicious. My favorite cigar is from City Cigar in Dallas. The owner rolls his own smokes in multiple strengths and shapes, and damn is he good.

EDIT: And notice how I mentioned the pre-embargo tobacco and such in my original post. Original Montecristos also contain tobacco cured in wormwood. Wormwood is used in absenthe and contains trace amounts of THC.
