Holy smoke

Some good news for the Castro regime: cigar exports are up.

According to officials at Habanos SA, the joint venture company that runs the Cuban cigar industry, sales increased by about seven per cent last year to USD402 million.

Although Habanos did not reveal exactly how many cigars were sold, it’s estimated that production amounts to about 160 million puros.

As for the top importers of Cuban cigars, they remain Spain, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Of course, the increase is not only good news for the Castro brothers but also for Altadis, the British company that owns half of Habanos SA.
