That is sad but surely there are reputable sellers here who access the premium cigars?
I occasionally like the smell of a cigar from afar, but I would never place a lit turd in my mouth
Blasphemy!!! But I bet you drink the Devil's brew, don't you? :LOL:

But seriously folks... Cigars are definitely not appreciated in the South like they are in the Cibao region.

It's even common to see women smoking cigars in Santiago and Tamboril.

I don”t know where you live but there are reasonable cigars available in Río San Juan. Edwin, a friend of mine, hé has a souvenir shop on the córner close to the old post-Office. He sells smaller brands but also the DR version of Arturo, R&J.

I've bought more 2K cigars than I would care to admit to so I know what you're talking about.

Just got a last minute request to bring some Arturo Fuente Cigars to the States on my upcoming trip.

Could someone advise where in Santiago I can buy some?

I'm a non-smoker so totally in the dark as to where to buy.
There are small factories in the central region that sell direct to consumer. There are others like Flor Dominicana and La Aurora who will offer a tour and sell direct to consumer. However Arturo Fuente is not one of them.

Leon Jimenez and La Aurora can be purchased in Supermercado Nacional. Check dates on the bottom though, they can tend to lay on the shelves there for some time.
