Whenever I come to my favourite Cigar Shop in Havana, actually, in the world, it's usually jammed with people. This always occurs when there's some kind of Cigar event happening in the city, either the Partagas Encuentro or the Habanos Festival that just took place in early March. All the major Aficionados had already left the city and they left nothing but pedestrian cigars in the Partagas humidor. The shelves were well stocked but no Habanos or Limited Edition cigars to be found in this shop. As well, after turning over more than a hundred boxes, nothing with more than 2 years age. So I sat myself down in the VIP room, alone, and smoked myself a cigar while sipping on an espresso and Santiago de Cuba Rum. The shop itself had it usual group of tourists coming in to buy cigars to take home to friends and family but the back room was empty. Of course I had to snap a few pics. Posted below is the info for the next Encuentro.....no prices yet.
