Q & A: Clear Havanas?

Q.
What are Clear Havanas?

5/05/08 | by JT of Hartford, CT

A.
Clear Havanas are a specific type of cigar made by machine prior to 1962. These cigars all contain 100% authentic Cuban tobacco, and were rolled in factories located in the United States. Since they were created before the year 1962 (prior to the embargo), they are perfectly legal to buy, sell, and smoke, unlike most other Cuban cigars. The cigars received their name because certain officials would be present at the US factories to "clear" the Cuban tobacco through customs. Since the tobacco is 100% Cuban, and these sticks were cleared by the United States government for distribution, they were named "Clear Havanas."
