A little more cigar history, when JF Kennedy was going to put the embargo of Cuban goods in place he had an aide go and buy up THOUSANDS of his favorite Cuban cigars.
Pre-embargo maybe most Cuban tobacco was shipped to Tampa and some to Miami to be rolled into cigars. That business is virtually gone, cheaper to go to the DR, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and now even Equador and other cheap labor countries.....some like DR, Honduras, Nicaragua getting pretty good.
Jamacia used to be a good cigar country, NOT SO MUCH NOW.
And the USA smoked ~90% green cigars, I used to smoke machine made AC Grenadiers (sp?) in the 70s, not now.
In the 1800s and 1900s cigars were made everywhere.....including the Newman company in Cleveland.
In my 2000 Pearlman's Cigar Encyclopedia they listed 1,222 brands of cigars (down from 1444 in the previous edition) and over 6000 models.......but I'd stick with the better names, some come and go like crazy.
