So that is from Cuba, I am guessing the embargo still holds for purchasing rum and cigars while traveling outside of the US in other countries?

grey area? because 30 states Cuban-origin while 31 states specifically travel to Cuba.

From the link Mark posted.

32. Can I purchase Cuban-origin cigars and/or Cuban-origin rum or other Cuban-origin
alcohol while in a third country (i.e. not Cuba)?
Yes, persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction may purchase or acquire Cuban-origin merchandise,
including alcohol and tobacco products, while in a third country for personal consumption. Such
products may be consumed while in a third country, or imported into the United States as
accompanied baggage for personal use only. For a complete description of what this general
license authorizes and the restrictions that apply, see 31 CFR 515.585(c) and (d)

Thanks Dom, I read the "for personal consumption" in 32 but read right past the "or imported in the United States"

If only I could read ..... ;)
