fakes

    Just got 2 boxes of these in and they do not look right to me... Did they get the best of me? These are from a major supplier that I have purchased from before and had good luck with. I can take more pictures if needed.

    So a few days back I'm in research mode and asked about the Trinidad cigars. Not only did I get some answers, I also received a very generous and unselfish offer from our resident friend Martin (mvorbrodt). Yea, he faked me out. I open the shipping box and this what I see! I immediately think...

    Of course most people now know to be very skeptical of any sticks they buy that were also being sold by TL. However, I figured I should warn people who may not know that it looks like there are a ton of fake Dunhills and Davidoffs floating around. Although these have not been confirmed fakes...

    Hi guys, long time no see .. Been eyeing this seller on a Danish 'used goods' website, he's got a couple of nice deals on Cubans, that he allegedly brought back from 'the factory' in Cuba. What puzzles me is, that none of the packages carry a hologram, or the code that you can verify on the...

    Hi gang, Am spending the summer in a sleepy but decent sized town in South America, which has ONE "real" cigar shop. Over the past few years on visits here, I've picked up goodies like Cohiba Maduros, BBF, PSD4, Montes, Upmanns, etc. They have a fairly decent selection for being small, and the...

    I have seen pictures of, smoked, held, etc... fake CCs. Is there a general area that they are produced? Are they made in ISOM with cheap tabacco, or somewheres else like the Domminican, Nicaraqua....? Anyone ever had a good or decent tasting "fake" before? I'd like two of the "glass top"...

    A friend snapped this picture for me in Veracruz, Mexico.

    I was gifted these. I'm not very confident that they are authentic, but then I know next to nothing of isoms. I had them in my freezer for several days, and finally acclimated them back to room temp. Any opinions as to their authenticity will be appreciated. Here they are:

    Well I think I know the answer to this but have to ask. I just got a box of Fonseca #1s in the mail today. This is the first time I've used this vendor but they appear to be a long standing provider and they have a good rating at Skokerings... Other than the cigars taking 35 days to get here...

    Hey all, I recently got to look at some Cohiba's that were purchased from the LCDH in Panama City, Panama. Now I am very ignorant of the Cohiba marca and I don't really have that much experience with them to say that these are real or fake. I included quite a number of pictures, and hope that...

    "Price point: Often the most telltale sign. If the price is too good to be true, it usually is. Do yourself a favor and check the price against the original manufacturer's recommended retail price on its Web site or that of an authorized dealer. Deep discounts are a huge tip-off that you may...

    No pics right now... The Cigars in question are Montecristo Petit Edmundo's. This order included these, and Diplomaticos #5's. I have ordered from this particular vendor several times, and it has always been good... The warranty seal under blacklight doesn't have the same hue as the...

    My brother-in-law was in Nicaragua this past two weeks on a mission trip. Van is a very novice cigar smoker, I've given him the only 4 or 5 he has smoked. Regardless, he knew Nic was a major cigar producer, and went ready to bring back several boxes or bundles of Nic puros if he could find a...

    Guys, I have never had the opportunity to enjoy one of those cigars from over there.... if you know what I mean... :huh_oh: I leave for the Philippines on Thursday and was hoping to have my first at a local B&M while there... how do I know if I have the real deal and that I am not just...

    I thought you'd all get a good laugh out of this... My brother was "gifted" these gorgeous Cohiba torpedos as a joke from our local B&M. I don't know where to begin with how bogus these are. Notice how they say "Carribean's Finest" on the band, so they must be real. Also, for some reason...

    It's possible that I could receive some Habanos for Fathers Day from my dad. Unlikely but possible. If they are fakes do I tell him to take them back and get a refund?
