I grew up near Little Havana, and was never interested in cigars. Now I live in Michigan, and when I went back down for winter break this year one of my friends asked me to scout out the factories for him. Now I have a habit; a Serie R Maduro smoked at the fruit market down the street from El Credito, with a colada in the other hand, in February, will do that. Beautiful scenery.
My tasting notes right now list about 20 sticks, so far my favorites are the Serie R No. 4, the Romeo Robusto by Romeo y Julieta, and the La Abeja Robusto. Liked the Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan as well, but it make me pretty dizzy. And some unbanded maduros and colorados I got from Santiago Cabana's shop on Calle Ocho... I have to go back home to get more.

Oh, yeah, no doubt online buying is the plan. I have to disagree with you on Calle Ocho being set up for tourists, like I said I lived near there my whole life and that's how it really is. Sure, some of the cigar shops are a bit upscale but the last one I mentioned isn't one of them... check it out. North side of SW 8th Street at 58th Ave. 3 bucks a stick and IMO better than a lot of big-name stuff that sells online for more.
