    As I understand it, the 2 liters is duty free. Anything above that requires a duty, which last I checked isn't much. I've brought back, and declared, quite a bit more and haven't been asked. FYI: The Havana Club is still banned. I think it is only legal now if brought back directly from Cuba. I took a chance a couple of years ago, and didn't have a problem. I made sure to pack it separately in case they confiscated it. Makes great mojito's and daiquiris by the way.

    Regarding US Customs and rum, just tell them the truth. You can actually bring back much more, subject to paying Duty. Given the small amount of Duty due, they will usually waive the Duty. If you actually have to pay Duty it will be just a few dollars. Youíre talking a few bottles. Thatís one thing. If you were talking a case or mire then that would be different.

    The Havana Club, for personal consumption, is legal now, as are Cuban cigars for personal consumption.
