Have any of you Havanaphiles ever had a counterfeit Cuban that had the triple wrap on the head? I usually look to this as one of the few serious defining factors in legit Cuban cigars since it takes a good roller extra time to perform this.

Just curious though...as I suppose a counterfeit couild easily have the same thing.

Definatly!!!! Had a fake Esplendido recently that looked as good as any Esplendido I've ever smoked-perfect triple cap and all. I started to smoke iot and it was aweful. Split it down the middle and it was all short filler. Can't tell a book from its cover. The best fakes look real.

Had an SD4 last week that was a horrible fake, looked like it should with a perfect triple on it, but BAD tasting!

ive heard that there are some non-cubans with triple caps , it is just one of many indicators not the sole one, taste being the only sure test........
