Question Bringing Cigars INTO Aruba.

Normally I use my annual 2 weeks in Aruba to enjoy some fine Cohibas (among other things). This year I'm on a tight budget and the $25.00/stick asking price for a Cohiba is just out of the question. As such, I thought I'd simply bring in some of my own (non-cuban) Cigars from home. They would be sealed and clearly labeled as a product of the DR. I'm thinking 10 cigars in total.

Will this be an issue on the way in?
Is this something specifically I need to "decalre" or otherwise mention on the way in through customs?

THANX!

I have brought cigars with me on my last 6-7 visits and have never had any issues. I've never declared having them and have never been questioned. Heading back to the island tomorrow morning as a matter of fact and will have about a dozen cigars with me, so I can give you a first-hand report in a couple days.

Bring my own to Aruba every year, no problem. Also enjoy Aruba's Aruhiba cigars.
