Often times fake Cubans will have non-Spanish-sounding names and won't be able to speak or understand any Spanish, and can only say, "Say hello to my little friend!" in horrendous accents.

P.S. - Those limited edition glass tops look like really sweet Christmas presents... where could I get those?

Great article man. Thanks!

HAHAHAHA Those glass top fakes dont even resemble a CC. They are so bad you would have to not smoke cigars at all to buy them. CC's have stitchy veins more often than smoothed down ones. If you get a CC with that stitch/stretched veining you can bet its legit.

Good article.

So my friend, I won 3 Siglo VI on twitter. dude lives in Ontario. Correspondence goes like this:1. Sending them across the border with a buddy to mail them from the U.S. in about two weeks.2. Sorry not going to send you the tubos just singles,afraid the tubos will get confiscated at the border. 3. Take a picture with the bands on then mail you w/o bands. 4. I'll mail the bands separately. I will be taking many photos of these for yours and others for perusal and verification upon receipt!

OMG! HAHAHAHAH!!!! I order CC's from Canada once a month. I have been getting them via USPS for years, there is never anything to worry about idk what your talking about, bands off? No tubo? thats just bs. its just like sending a book never a problem.

Interesting Doc... There are questionable Cohiba coming from Canada. Def send me pics when they arrive, it should be easy to identify.

Hey Doc, regarding the shipping.  We get a lot of cross border packages being seized by customs so that's pretty SOP for us.
