    I have 2 gurkha platinum triads that are 6x60. I can only find info saying that they were made in only one size 7x52. Any info about these cigars would be helpful. Mainly to know if they could be fake or not.

    My girlfriend and I were fooling around with my DSLR tonight, and I wanted a picture of me with a cigar. Since I can't light up in the house, that's what came up. Not bad for a unlit cigar?

    Well, no Holy Grail here. "I must have chosen poorly." It's an obvious fake via Cigar Aficionado's vids: Counterfeit Behikes Huge bummer. Well, I guess my source is a nice guy, just not well educated either in the Habano Cigar culture. Damn cigarettes must have clouded his mind. QUESTION: Do I...

    The band above is from a Boli PC '09, the bottom band is from a Boli RC '10, notice the one on the bottom does not have the rounded off end on the left side displaying the ring gage range. I know they started stamping the ring gage on the end of the band like that in '09 I believe, but the...

    Well, my friend from work just came back from a cruise (yea, we all know where this is going). He has smoked with me a few times, and know I'm a pretty regular smoker, so he was gracious enough to pick me up some "cubans" while he was away. :( Well, pictures speak for themselves. I won't say...
