This LIFE picture is one of my JFK favorites. All of us know he was a fan of Habanos. But what you may not know and what was revealed by one of his staff in a 2000 interview is that Jack Kennedy wanted to exempt cigars from the Cuban embargo, JFK told Richard Goodwin, "We tried to exempt cigars, but the cigar manufacturers in Tampa objected. I guess we’re out of luck.” Would love to see pix of your favorite cigar smokers. It can be a family member with a story too. You may recognize the attached from my profile.
