A “Newbie’s” Guide to Developing a Relationship with Your Habanos Vendor For the Cuban cigar consumer, the vendor is arguably the most important link in a long chain that begins in the fields of Cub

Very good post. I know personally its a trust thing for me. When you get a call from some long haired fellow in Australia on his dime to BS a bit that make a connection in a positive way. Prez...I hav

Thank you for this Shrink, even though this was written in 2007.....doesn't seem like much if anything has changed. I am very new to the world of Habanos......not cigars mind you. I have printed this

Nice writeup Shrink! Thanks for taking the time to create this, I know it took quite a bit of time.

I remember back when I was reading the CA Cuban forum and reading all the guys saying how they are going to keep their "Sources" a secret teasing the noobs with their knowledge. It's really disheartening to a noob who wants to give the Cubans a go. It seems so elitist when approached that way and it shouldn't be really.

So I started searching the internet. And find sources I did. You are correct, there are TONS of them. What convinced me to buy however, was the forum right here at FOH. Nice to have a place where the Owner is not only an advocate, but an active member of the forums as well!

Prez...I have referred several family members...and I guess I never asked if you need to know that prior to me sending them over to look/buy.

Very well done. I thought you summed up the most important considerations and presented them in an interesting fashion. It really reads like something out of a book or magazine. (A good magazine, not those teen rags that Rob reads to find out whom Lindsey Lohan is dating during her latest stint in rehab.)

» Most “newbies” who seek sources for genuine Habanos are concerned about

» getting burned, or receiving fakes.

A very nice and informative post.

I wish I had stumbled across a thread like this when I first started my venture into Online Vendors. I too was impatient being used to instant gratification.

Thinking I knew it all, I bought several thousands of dollars of fakes from shady vendors. Wilkey now has the majority of them, and I am waiting for him to do his write ups. Hopefully, if this saves one "Newbie" the same heartbreak, my loss and Wilkeys sluething will be rewarded.

It's a war out there when it comes to finding an honest trustworthy vendor.
