What do I found inside my Cohiba that I bought two weeks ago in Habana, Cuba to my private TourGuide

Hello folks! Hopefully these photos can help to anyone who visit Cuba like me in New Year's Eve for two days. I bought with my father-in-law a 25 Box (25 Genios Maduro 5) in Habana Vieja, Cuba 3 weeks ago. @Bob_Luken request an autopsy of one of the cigars and that's what I found.
That box cost to us $170.00 with all the origin warranty seals, cedar sheet, tissue, nice black wooden box and the Fohibas inside. 

Hopefully you enjoy the photos!!! Let comments!!!

    Now it's time to try it. Remember I don't know anything about taste, palate, cigars. I don't smoke I only drink Single Malt Scotch Whiskies and some japanese and irish.  :D

    Probably still made from Cuban tobacco

    This was a better experience by far.

    Live and learn. Nice nails. While vacationing in the Dominacan Republic not to long ago I piss-ed off some beach sellers with knowledge gained from these Forum members. The regular poster's on this forum will educate in ways no other forums would or could hope to accomplish. Just my opinion.  Enjoy your time here. Peace.

    @miller65rod I barely can see it  but I think is: 000003 394058 

    That's because this box is in the home of my Father-in-Law right now. I will go there next month. Maybe I can take more photos of the other Cohibas and its box. 

    Peace  ;)

    At least it all looks like tobacco. Glad you found no trash or garbage in there.

    I'm glad as well but I really didn't enjoy the smoke. I will buy another sticks to try different kinds of cigars for example Opus X for A. Fuente, Camacho American Barrel Aged, and some Olivas. What do you reccommend me to start in a good price @Bob_Luken ? Thanks for your help!

    I'm not sure what the prices might be where you are. Where are you? My advice would be to try everything. Keep a record of your favorites. Try your favorites again to be sure. Buy boxes of the ones you know for sure you like.  Online auction sites are best deal. cigarbid.com  

    But go slow at first. You don't want to be stuck with too many  cigars you have lost interest in. 

    Brands to explore:
    Brick House
    Crowned Heads
    Drew Estate 
    Diamond Crown
    La Flor Dominicana (LFD)
    Warped
    Too many to list all of them.

    There are so many choices out there. Nobody I know of,  smokes just one cigar. Everybody smokes different cigars on different days.

    The CCOM Forum Top 25 of 2018 list might make a good start.
