Is there anything other than cigars that are desirable from Cuba? Everyone it seems, cigar smokers and non smokers alike seem to know about Cuba and its "fine handmades". I was just wondering what other luxuries Cuba might contain. Liquors and Craft Beers. Anyone had the pleasure of maybe trying a "Cuban" specialty while on vacation? I am very curious to here what Cuba might have to offer.

Not W/B/L related but you asked what else Cuba might have to offer. How about incredible flats fishing in the Jardines de la Riena. That's my most desirable Cuban commodity at this point.

This. But from what I've had the rum is overrated. Expensive too.

Ironically it's only expensive if you have to ship it. You can buy bottles in Mexico for like, $20. I've yet to try their 15yr, but I do enjoy their 7yr neat.

The 7yr was nothing special to me. Ive had better South American rum.

:tu 7 yr Havana Club is like any other young rum. Legendario Anejo is a whole different animal.

Had a few different HC varieties. HC7 is a good mixer (nothing more than that to me, too hot). I've had HC Barrel Proof, that wasn't too bad, and while in Greece with SmokeyNL back in 2010, we had some killer mojitos made with HC.
