Before he set up the embargo, JFK needed to make sure he got his hands on his favourite Habanos, so he instructed his right-hand man ‘Pierre Salinger’ a critical mission – to obtain at least 1,000 premium cigars from Cuba. As impossible as it sounds, Salinger successfully collected 1,200 puros just before the embargo was placed. We would expect he took home a lot of H. Upmann Cigars as it was known to be J.F.K.’s favourite.
The Embargo Lifted Selection Gift Box includes:
