This is my first post here on L4P, so I look forward to getting to know everybody. I am going to be in the BVIs this March and want to make a stop by a local cigar shop to pick up some cubans. Which cigars would you recommend that I pick up, what would the best process be for bringing them back, and do you guys know of any good stores to shop at?

I hope you're stopping at Foxy's on Yost Van ****. Great place to spend an evening. For cigars, Monti #2's and Edmundo's are always nice. And as for getting them hope I'd suggest bringing a bubble envelope and a box with you and put them in the mail. It's the easiest way to get them home.

I think Foxys is on the agenda for the evening at Yost Van ****, have you been to Soggy Dollar Bar, Ivan’s, or Gertrude's? Thanks for the tips on mailing them back, has anyone had any experiences/stories as far as physically bringing them back?

I've never been to the other 3 places you mentioned but have heard from a friend that just spent time cruising around the area that Soggy Dollar and Ivan's were good.

Been to the Caribbean over 10 times, and customs has never once looked in my luggage. You can never be sure though I guess.

Other nice choices are the:

Partagas D#4
Hoya de Monterey Epicure #2
Romeo y Julieta Churchhills

So what would the actual repurcussions be if my bags were to be searchs. I would imagine confinscation would be about as far as they would take it...I've smoked a #2 before and was planning to pick a few up, but I was hoping to get my hands on something really unique.

Carbo-thanks for the heads up.

From what I heard they'll simply confiscate the cigars. Special = Cohiba Behike

Upping this to get a trip report from the OP. Also, Customs will confiscate and put you on a list so you're always checked on future trips. My buddy got a box taken from him returning from Asia, and he always gets searched whenever he returns to the US.

That's a good start. In addition to those:
Montecristo #2
Cohiba Genios Maduro 5
Cohiba Siglo VI (or any Siglo for that matter)
Bolivar Belicoso
Partagas Serie P #2
Cuaba is also decent.
And that's all I can remember of good cubans that I have smoked (list is bigger but oh well).
