Hostal Valencia Cigar Shop (Old Havana)

                  For those of you who follow my blog you may remember a post I did a while back talking about the smaller cigar shops and what someone might find there. I had intentions of possibly adding this shop to my list but after visiting recently I'm scratching it off. It never had a huge inventory to begin with but it looks totally depleted now. If you check out the pictures below you'll see a big difference in three year's time. It always seems to have people in there shopping....obviously not aficionados.

    1. It's definitely not a place for us Steven...which is basically what I meant to say.
