I had read reviews about Don Lucas online before our trip and knew that it was a MUST on the list of things today.
As we walked in the small rolling room, our tour guide came out and asked what type/size cigar I preferred, briefly went to another room and grabbed a cigar for me to smoke during the tour. Our tour guide was Kelmin and he did not hesitate to answer every question that I had about the rolling process as well as many questions I had about identifying counterfeit Cubans. We spent well over 30 minutes in the humidor talking about the aforementioned topics and in the meantime, selecting what I wanted to purchase. He was not pushy about the purchases and did not seem in a hurry to get rid of us. It was only my wife and I, so going into it I thought they wouldnt want to waste their time on us.
I ended up purchasing a box of Don Lucas cigars that was half medium body and half full body cigars, and a box of Romeo y Julieta Cubans upon his recommendation. After my cigar selection was complete, he poured 4 different shots of rum for me to sample. By this point the medium bodied cigar I was smoking was coming to a powerful end, and the rums complemented and balanced out the cigar nicely.
Overall, this is a great little excursion that is free of charge and very educational for a cigar lover. However, we did tip the driver $5 there, $5 back because it was two different drivers. And, I gave Kelmin some $$ too for his time.
