Normally when I travel outside the US, I don’t take cigars with me. One of the added benefits of traveling abroad whether I’m traveling for business or pleasure, is the ability to to purchase and smoke all the real cuban cigars that I want. So on a trip to Australia a couple of years back, upon arriving in Port Douglas, I immedietely set out to buy some cuban cigars, to no avail.
Nothing. This endless pursuit went on for days, until I arrived in Sydney. At which point I happily paid a ridiculous premium for a handful of Montecristo #2’s, and a couple Rocky Patel’s in a top downtown hotel. But when I buy cigars online, I want to pay a good price.

And it’s no different with . We found that overall they had the best prices. But that’s not to say they have the lowest prices on every cigar. The big takeaway here is if price is paramount, Famous Smoke Shop is a great starting point..
