I was given a Cohiba in Veracruz, MX one evening at Los Portillos. I puffed it for a while and wondered that it tasted so familiar. Later I was at a Buena Noche (Christmas Eve) party and a man asked me what kind of cigars I smoke (I'd just lit one). I replied that I bought them locally. He told me that if I went one street down and two over I could buy them "hand made". I thanked him and the next time I was nearby and almost out of smokes I went there. I was greeted by the sight of one lady and two gentlemen sitting at their tables rolling cigars and chatting. The owner appeared, we chatted, discussed cigars and he invited me into another room. There on a table were boxes with the Cohiba branding, some empty, some already full. He invited me to try one, I did and it tasted exactly like the ones (not Cohiba) I was buying from the other supplier. Ah, the taste of tobacco from San Andreas Tuxtla is quite unmistakable. We discussed price, I agreed and three days later I had some hand made panatellas in my possession. None had bands nor boxes that said Cohiba, but, they were the same cigars. LOL
To put exactly what was in the "lead in" into the article and naught else is rank ignorance. And I'm ignorant for reloading it twice to see if there was more.
