jlmarta:Spend a little time wandering around this website:http://www.cubancigarwebsite.comIt's pretty informative.....
JGKAMIN:Hard to tell by seeing a 1/2" tip of a cigar. Packaging could be real but what about the stick? Reminds me of one vacation where the retailer said he'd just slip off the Cuban ring and put a different one on that would get by Customs...which of course is what he did to begin with. A $2 stick in packaging from a $35 cigar. With that said, I doubt anyone here can say yeah or nay based on what we see here. How about some pics of the actual cigar itself?
Cigary:Nothing beats a cigar on a balcony on a cruise ship...I do it as much as possible. Your cigars look pretty authentic and nothing about them gives my radar anything to worry...taste is usually conclusive given that you know the profile. I tend not to buy any cigars on my trips ( cruises ) anymore unless it's from an authentic licensed B&M but that usually means it costs more. I bring my own and have been for the last few years because I know they are legit and are well rested. I've learned that getting a cabin on the aft end of the boat is perfect for smoking cigars....the wind doesn't affect the burn and in fact keeps it from going sideways and nobody is whining about the smell as they do when you are on the port or starboard sides. A lot of Cruiselines are outlawing smoking on your balcony except for a select few....I tend to choose cruise lines that let me smoke or have a lounge for cigar smokers.
