One of these things is not like the others . . .

Cigar Aficionado has done it again. The monthly mag infamous for brushing off the Cuban dictatorship in order to sell cigars has picked the image of Fidel Castro for its latest ad campaign. What is perhaps worse is Fidel’s placement in the ad, which debuted in today’s edition of the New York Post. That’s right – old fifo has been placed right beside the visage of the late Winston Churchill. If that isn’t a slap in the face of Great Britain’s WWII-era prime minister, I don’t know what is.

  1. Apparently, Cigar Aficionado seems to believe that “men with refined taste” also enjoy murder, theft, pludering, etc, etc. . . interesting.

  2. This is one of the most anti Cuban American media outlets out there – who would of thought a cigar magazine! I have read many slanderous pieces in this rag.

    But I also blame the stupid Cuban American celebs who have been featured in its pages and also the cigar companies owned by greedy Cuban exiles that advertise in the magazine. Many former Cuban cigar manufacturers moved to other countries, and the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua and continue to make cigars and also advertise in the magazine that features Castro and says not to nice things about Cuban exiles. Shame on them.

    You know this mag is pro Cuba because they all want to make money getting Cuban cigars.

  3. James Suckling just returned from Cuba via Cancun. By his own admission the customs officials noticed he’d been to Cuba and did NOTHING!

    “Then I realized that my immigration card said that I had been to Cuba along with Mexico. I was sure the immigration office was going to balk on that one. Just like they always do. I knew I was screwed.

    I couldn’t believe it. But if she even looked at the form, I would have been surprised. She looked at me and then stamped it, without even saying a word. Nothing.”
