No insult intended, meant to be humorous, but the trip from those photos to hell was a short one.

hi thanks for the link and the memorys.
I have a lot of people say you grow tobacco here? I thought it was virgina and cuba that did tobacco. I always answer do you remember seeing or smoking Have- a - Tampa . where do you think they where made? I smoked a lot of have a tampa 's, king edwards, and swisher sweets and crooks when I was younger.
A few years ago was visiting some friends at High Springs and took some pictures of the old tobacco drying barns there .
Thanks again Lee

While it will never be what it once was... there are some things for the tobacco enthusiast to do there... La Harencia de Cuba rolls great cigars. The proprietor is a Master Torcedor and once #1 in all of Cuba...

Visit Tampa Sweethearts for direct-from-the-source deals on Arturo Fuente, Ashton, etc.

Of course... The Columbia for dining greatness.

April 9th is a Cigar Festival... I may go!

Great site.

Hoyo de Monterrey cigars, Punch, La Gloria Cubana and many more were made in Florida after the embargo. Labor costs sent them all away.
