    Nassau

    Just got back from a trip to Nassau and wanted to share a warning.... If you are looking for Cubans watch very carefully that the cigars you are shown are actually the cigars you leave with. I watch a German dude buy what he thought were a box of Cohibas from a store right on Bay Street, (the main shopping area), but when he was paying for them he was actually given a different box - the guy said the new one was sealed and fresh.... Oh yeah. Outside the German opened the box to find rough rolled cigars with what was obviously copied labels. So beware if buying in Nassau.

    Thanks for the information. I'm told to stick with Graycliffs and The Shops in Atlantis for "real" cigars.

    I can sort of confirm this as well.

    I was just in Nassau during x-mas and stayed at the Colonial Hilton (right beside the shopping area). The concierge told my father to check out every single cigar he was interested in (individually) before paying.

    Also we stopped by Graycliffs and they had their own in house torcedores rolling. Man I regret not grabbing one of those freshly rolled robusto's

    Ugh, those streets smell like urine too. Will stick to Mexico and central trips for now on.

    Graycliffs and The Atlantis ARE the only reputable places for cigars in Nassau. I saw a lot of cigars being sold on the street, convenience stores and pharmacies that "looked" good, but I stuck to the places that were recommended.

    It is unlawful for an American to even buy a CC, let alone bring it back, so be careful if that is the plan LGHT. As far as NCs (which I'm sure is what you are talking about ) I have no idea about boat travel, but I would assume if you are leaving the states, there will be customs. I've heard that you can bring 10 or less cigars into the states without needing to declare them. But, I may be wrong.

    I'm going on a cruise as well and wondered the same thing.

    But I wanted to find out more about the Hotel Graycliff cigars. Are there any that they sell there that I should specifically look for? I've never had a Graycliff but have been told that the ones from the Bahamas are fantastic.

    customs doesn't check usually if you don't look "suspicious" and your with a family sort of crowd. I guess it comes down to how honest you are?
