Tel Aviv 2019


Recommended Posts

Honeymoon in Israel, sorry to say there is no longer an LCDH at the Intercontinental. There is still a cigar bar, the Che Bar, but very limited stock. They DO have Behikes, but EDIT a crazy amount of shekels per.   I’m smoking a Robusto now.  They don’t even have Havana Club.  Much disappoint.  

Rome Duty Free was horrific unless you like boxes of Quintero’s.  They did have a few hard to find Rolex’s at their shop.  

Hoping Fincato on way back home through Rome is better.  Israel lovely, just not for Cuban cigars so far.

We had a box of the RE Israel. Sent from Brill’s as I mentioned above. We smoked two, after letting them rest in the humidor for a good long time.

These short, expensive, “big deal” RE’s as I call them, have exhausted my interest.

Sold them.

But I hope you enjoy that one!

Mazel tov on your mitzvah.

Israeli airport duty free is really solid and had serious discounts if you could buy 2+ boxes.  

My days of hoping to find cigars travelling to any locale are over.  Bring cigars!  Sure it's fun the shop for them too, but I don't want to be let down or spin wheels when time is limited.

How do they compare to other ER RA? It seems like there are a million of them now, for every country, region, etc.

I like them, although I haven't had one in years....they were little flavour bombs. Don't know how they have aged.

If you are still there, the best cigar store in Israel is in Tel Aviv. Brill’s.

In Jerusalem now for a few days.  Flying out of Tel Aviv to Rome, I want to check out duty free and then Fincato in Rome.  The Rome duty free was complete crap.  But at least I’ll pick up some Seleccion Maestro and maybe Limoncello (per the wife) for trip back.

My experience with Duty Free is zero. Cigar shoppers have been through 24 hours a day long before us. We try to find out the guys who are recommended sellers and email them before traveling to let them know we are coming by. This has always been a fun thing to show on travel stories here as many may agree I hope. 

Example below is in Vienna. If you find a great spot, please share. Ok?

Cheers and Mazel tov!

Ok, in Jerusalem there’s a Habanos specialist right across from the Waldorf on Mamilla Ave.  hooray!  Picked up a few more.  No boxes, but had some accessories for sale

I agree on finding trusted sellers, that’s why it was surprising to me that the LCDH in Tel Aviv had closed.  The girl there said closed for 2 years, you’d think HSA would update the website
