This is what Cigars in the Sand is all about: new experiences and great cigars. Pictured above are two Cohibas that Fidel Castro personally produced for Saddam and labeled for his son, Uday Saddam Hussein. I'll smoke one of these when Saddam is executed, and the other when Castro dies. Am I allowed to hope for the occurence of both events before I leave Iraq? yes, I think so.
