Re: mjp's CIGAR NEWS* and my picks and other cigar info, please add your own comments
I have been a cigar smoker most of my adult life, a customer of JR Cigar since the late 70's, and totally agree with Michael on his selections.
Back in the 80's, I lived in Berlin, flew into Moscow and Leningrad lots of times, found that the waiters at the hotel would sell me a BOX of Partagas for $10 US! Yes, they were a bit dry, but a spell in my humidor brought them back. Warsaw was another place to buy cheap Cubans, as was Palma, but that's another story.
My favorite from JR is the JR Ultimate #1.
