Where do you ship to?

Is it legal to buy Cuban Cigars?
Yes. There has always been a very large business in selling Cuban Cigars to the US. Recently, the US Dept. of Justice modified its original embargo on Cuban products to allow importation of a limited amount of Cuban cigars when returning from a licensed trip to Cuba. This law, in practice, has been expanded by the public and law enforcement to allow the public to import small amounts of up to 2 boxes of Cuban Cigars for personal use. Although there is no law that outlines the ability for a US resident to import Cuban Cigars, of the tens of thousands of customers that are importing Cuban Cigars into the US, there is no record of anyone every being prosecuted for importing an order for personal use.

Please note, we do not recommend bringing Cigars back from trips across the border to Canada or Mexico. The border guards have been looking for individuals bringing back large amounts and have the discretionary power to hassle individuals bringing them across, even for personal use. Most people who buy in Canada, ship them home to themselves before they leave, or buy online just to avoid problems.

How do you ship? How long does it take to receive my order?
We ship standard insured registered 7-10 day mail. In both cases you will receive your package safely and with out delay, typically shipping from our locations to you in 24-48 hours.

Do the cigars come in the original packaging when shipped?

In almost all cases, Yes. Depending on which country we are shipping to. We ship in one of two ways:

  1. International: Original unopened boxes in plain and unmarked postal packages, if they are loose cigars then we ship them in their original wrappers and bands. This is the method we almost always ship by. For more on shipping please see shipping.

How do I know the cigars you sell are authentic?

All our Cuban cigars come from Havana House Canada, the official importer of Cuban cigars from Habanos S.A. Cuba, the original producer and manufacturer of all Cuban Cigars world wide. We guarantee and stand by the fact that all of the products we sell are 100% authentic.

Will I have to pay duty or import tax on the cigars I order?
No you do not. We only ship orders out in quantities of two (2) boxes maximum at a time so there are no import duties due. If you order more than 2 boxes we will ship them in two shipments, free of additional charge.

How do you store your cigars?
To large part the taste and burn of the cigar depends on the conditions it was stored in. Once a cigar has been stored in poor conditions, it can never be corrected. All our cigars are stored in their original cases in a climate controlled facility with a humidity level of 70%-75%. We only take them out immediately before shipping and ship all cigars in either original sealed boxes or safe and sealed packaging if an assortment individual cigars. In this way we guarantee you get your cigars in the condition they were meant to be smoked.

How should I store my cigars?
If you do not have a humidor we suggest you buy one. Please read storing your cigars. It is very important to store your cigars in a way which will prevent them from dying out. A humidor is specially designed to keep cigars fresh enough to be a great smoke but not humid enough that they begin to mold or degrade. One can store them without a humidor, but they will dry out quickly and can not be rehydrated. We will be offering humidors in the very near future.
