Best ways to smuggle Cuban rum into the US

Recommended Posts

Not that I'm in Mexico, not that I like Cuban rum, not that I would ever break the law or commit treason, but . . . .

given some of the fares I've seen between NYC and Paris, you may have a good arbitrage opportunity provided you've got sturdy luggage. Also pack wine and declare it all as wine - I bring over all sorts of funky booze (though none yet cuban) and even when sent to the ag line for inspection - twice now - never once a problem, nor any close inspection, nor even asked to pay duty. honestly they are more interested in agricultural hazards...and you really do see alot of that when you get sent over to the ag line.

while packing the cuban rum, don't ignore the cuban coffee.

Have you checked what's for sale in Canada?

I know that my old boss at Chez Henri would organinze "educational" trips, which seem to be legal. They would go over for the purpose of "studying" the food and drink of Cuba. Because the trip was legal in nature, they were fast tracked through customs. We always used to have Havana Club rum at the restaurant, displayed it even.

I have never had a problem Smugling too many Bottles of Rum into the USA.

I do like the Wine Idea though, just in case. If you do get caught, blame it on the wife. :biggrin: What's the worse that can happen ?
