I think a lot of people would disagree that CC's aren't worth it, but like you said, "to me". As far as the cigars from Honduras, I picked up a 5 pack of 'em when we were there in June and they were great. A few fellow smokers and I killed all of 'em except one that I brought home to a local BOTL. I wish I had smoked one before the ship left port because they were seriously a good cigar. When I first picked them up though they smelled awful. I had really low expectations going into it and was totally surprised.

Ksandy, if you plan on sticking around CA, head over to the intro forum and tell us about yourself.

They're up to $20 per package, but he gave me 4 free after telling other tourists they were "moy bien!"

Was just on Roratan and Adalberto was still on the pier and still hand rolling his cigars. Came back with a few after having a couple down there. Both were mild and not to tightly wrapped. Phone number still the same. Email has not changed either.

I was wondering if you knew how to get any of these cigars? They were a barber pole wrapper. Sorts toasty and nutty?

Just discovered this forum when I tried to find information about Moncada Cigars. A friend who returned from a cruise gave me a pack of seven. I tried one while playing pool at lunchtime and was astonished how well it drew, didn't go out, and seemed worth more respect than I was giving it at the time. So I sat on my veranda overlooking the sea (I live in Sri Lanka) last night and smoked another one as I sipped 18 year-old Laphroaig single malt whisky. The effect was mellowing; smooth, rich and not as dry as the standard Cubans we get here. Alas, I only have five left but shall make sure that every one is enjoyed without interruptions and with full respect to the skill of Sr Moncada and his skill and choice of tobacco.

I was in Roatan in April and didn't see any worthwhile cigars.
Now Grand Cayman was another story.
