December 2005

Thank you all for a fantastic year

By Richard on December, 28th 2005 - 2:20 pm

Time for us to thank you all for a fabulous year on behalf of all the staff at and the Habanos Importer in Switzerland. Not only have we seen a continued improvement in the quality of the cigars being produced in Cuba, but the new smokes introduced have been exciting and show an deeper understanding to produce cigars that suit the modern smokers wants and needs. From the point of view of, we have introduced a number of improvements to the site and our services. We hope all these factors have helped contribute to making 2005 one of your best smoking years yet. One objective for next year, keep improving on this and further development the Club feeling. Have an excellent New Year.

The first thing that caught my eye was the wonderful graphical design of this site. The next thing I noticed was the expertise of the shopkeeper. The third thing I got to enjoy was the fantastic service during and after my order. This is a webstore I enjoy browsing and keep coming back to again and again. It is also the only site I've allowed to send me a newsletter about their current offerings. I have not regretted.

Richard's Christmas Day smoke

By Richard on December, 20th 2005 - 12:09 pm

I always look really forward to my Christmas day afternoon smoke. It is tradition for all the Bergman men to gather after Christmas lunch, bottle of Cognac in hand and share a great smoke. A years worth of anecdotes are exchanged with the usual fair share of tall stories, that get taller as the afternoon moves on. I have chosen the Hoyo Epicure Especial EL 2004 as the cigar to be sampled this year. Although we will not all be big smokers, after a large lunch and a few bottles of red wine, this fine rich and complex cigar will be perfect.

E-mail communication problems ?

By Richard on December, 12th 2005 - 11:06 am

I have word back from a number of Members, informing me that there have been some difficulties with the reception of e-mails sent from addresses. If you have not been receiving replies to your mails (I will always reply within 24 hrs), do not hesitate to re-send me your mail, informing me that you have not had a reply. The more feedback I can get from you, the more proactive I can be in resolving problems. I look forward to hearing from you.

Richard - What a great site this is. You perfectly mirror the wonderful experience of enjoying a cigar either alone or with friends. The site is well constructed and easy to navigate through. Besides the great selection and immediate shipping, your thoughts and pontifications on life makes a great read while I'm enjoying one of your smokes.

Season of Goodwill - Let us remember that !

By Richard on December, 06th 2005 - 5:42 pm

Just a quick note to remind you all that Rick and I are real people, we are madly passionate about the world of Cuban cigars and we adore sharing this culture with you all. is an official Habanos S.A. registered distributor, based in Geneva, Switzerland, generally regarded as the finest market for Cuban hand rolled cigars. We have been in the business for over 10 years and have smoked our fair share of cigars, all over the world. If you come to us, it is to join a club, to become part of a group of like minded people. Joining, means you want to develop your cigar experience and that you take pride in the exploration of aromas and flavors. It means you are here to share. I realize that the world of the Cuban cigar is confusing (box codes, bands, etc...), believe me it is a nightmare especially to us, but I would really appreciate if a minimum level of politeness and respect was applied when communicating with us by mail or by phone. As clearly explained on our web site, we stand by our product and services, if you are not happy, simply inform us, you don't have to insult us. It is a Season of good will for everyone, not just for clients. I thank you for your understanding.

// Daniel // December, 21st 2005 // 6:53 pm

Although I have only ordered from TopCubans for about a year and, typically, communicate only by e-mail, nonetheless, I am very happy with the quality of cigars. On the one occassion where there was a problem Rick and I exchanged emails, addressing my issues and the problem was resolved quickly thereof (much to my benefit and delight).

I see no reason that if a mistake occurs, folks should toss their manners and basic courtesy out the window. It has been my experience that if you explain your problem to TopCubans and exercise a small amount of patience, they will resolve the issue and bend over backwards to make up for the inconvenience (as in my case). TopCubans has my thanks and my business.


// hockeyman // December, 09th 2005 // 9:10 pm

Richard and Rick give the greatest customer service!! They are the Best-I take offence that somebody or somebodies would be rude to these men-There service and product quality is the AWESOME!!!FOR THE RUDE ONES GET A LIFE!!!
