Dear Aficionado’s,

There are hundreds of companies selling Cuban and non-Cuban cigars worldwide. This article is about online cigar shops. Our mission is directing cigar culture through the correct way and deciding authentic products to be purchased.

NOTE: Conclusions and comments are derived from individual experiences by purchased products and companies.

As we were listing these companies we stated some important criteria and tried to list companies fulfilling these criteria.

Our Criteria’s;
* Authentic Habanos product must be available only. (Must have)
* Must be a legal company (If a company is not an official one, doubt product authenticity and trust to company)
* Providing real address and contact information (many companies are using fake address and standart TOLL FREE numbers. These will not be listed)
* Verified by Habanos S.A. or official distributor in the country.(Unverified companies by Habanos S.A. or regional distributors should be questioned.)
* Selling tax paid product.(Taxes are income for all countries. Selling tax-free products as duty-free can be considered but currently I don’t think it’s right to publish at blog.)
* Customer pleasure (Fast reply, finding a quick solution to all problems occurred is extremely important.)

These are the qualified companies fulfilling our criteria’s. (It is not possible to list all but we tried to list most popular ones.)

Let’s see the companies;
LCDH Knokke is one of official sales offices of Habanos S.A which is owned by Mrs. Dominique Gyselinck. She is really one of the leading ladies in cigar knowledge.

Shop Cigars Lighters Humidors Online Best Prices


  1. Do you not read the review of the cigar inspector?
    I ordered cigars for verification of the content is written.
    As a result, it is written in the cigar inspector review seems truth.
    They sent me the tracking number, but the data did not exist anywhere.
    I would urge the attention to the whole world through the credit card company.

    This shop is very suspicious.

    This is the web site that I have as a reference.

    • The Hamburg LCDH may well rip you off, if ordering from abroad. They had sent cigars before, albeit taking their sweet time to do so. The last time, they took my money (via credit card) and despite several emails and phone conversations over 10 months telling me they would send or had sent them, Christoph was just lying. Pretty sad that the only time I have ever had an issue was when ordering from an LCDH…a German one, no less.

  2. how about ihavana

    • We aware that in order to confirm a website whether it is a original or fake, we need to access below informations on website;7
      Company Name:
      Phone Number:
      Fax Number:
      The website mentioned by you we do not see any information that we would like to see. It is not right to comment about a website that has only email address on their website.

    • Alston T Burge

      Very legit, been using them for a while now. I’ve been smoking cigars for 30+ years and can tell the difference from a real Cuban and a fake just by construction, and then the flavor will always give it away or confirm it for sure.

    • Alston T Burge

      ihavana’s is definitely the real McCoy, been using them for years and have never gotten a bogus batch. 30+ year cigar smoker, 20+ just Cubans.

      • Ihavana is fake rip off place an order paid for it and never received there phone number don’t work and there email is a fake

        • Jonathan Lange

          Not true at all. They are fantastic about cigars that do not arrive they stand behind everything. I have no idea who you are dealing with but Ihavanas is the real deal. I have been ordering from them for 10 plus years I presently own about 500 cigars in my humidor everything from rear Cohibas to everyday smokes like RJ Wide Churchill’s and Juan Lopez robustos. I have turned over a dozen cigar-smoking friends on to that site and they have never had a problem even once. The other site that is 100% real is cigars of habanos. I have been dealing with Ravi for also 15 years or so and he stands behind every order. I have also turned on my friends to that website and none of them have had problems. Once in awhile in order gets confiscated and they replace it no questions asked.

          • I totally agree with you. IHavana is legit and they’re great. I have never had any problem with them and I’ve been buying from them for 10 years. I’ve also bought Cuban cigars while traveling abroad through duty free stores, and I’ve purchased from TopCubans, CigarOne, and Montefortuna. IHavanas cigars are the same and when I checked the bar codes and labeling through S.A. Habanos, everything checkout as authentic.
            I like IHavana better only because they ship for free, they’re located in a duty free zone in Switzerland (that’s why the can offer a little better prices) and as mentioned, you can get great deals and often better prices.

          • Wrong. I ordered a box of montecristo #2 from them and they were fake. I took 2 apart to see what was inside and it wasn’t close to what an authentic monte 2 should be. They rob me once but not twice.

    • Have ordered from Top, Ihavana and Cigars of Habanos, all w no problems. 100% legit Cubans from all 3. Also have ordered non-Cubans from CoH when they have had good sales and they arrived in good shape. CHEERS

      • Cigarsofhabanos is an absolute rip off, I have placed a large order on their site (>$1000) and a week later I was informed that some items were not available in stock and a refund will be issued for them. 6 weeks later still no refund and every time I sent an email to them, a person named Ravi, her answer was “the refund will be credited next week” they took my money and didn’t ship the order. ABSOLUTE RIPOFF!!!

    • Kevin Chambers

      Ihavanas is definitely a great site to order cuban cigars from. Buy with confidence

  3. Any info on (edited by CigarAnalysis)

      It is not a proper manner by writing related website’s URL to obtain backlink and your attempt has been corrected.
      Once related company demands then will be added to this page.

      • My question was directly related to you overall distribution of propaganda accosiated to falsifying authenticity. The question can be simplified. Is the RFI on the website above real or fake?

        • This is already CigarAnalysis job that to find out websites sell fake in all over the world and we are capable to determine whether a website sells fake or not through our criterions. So what does it bother you here? What kind of criterion do you have? Your all anonymous comments and unvalid e mail address show that you are not a real commentator

      • The term backline is used to refer just to audio amplification equipment that stands behind the band on stage, including amplifiers for guitars, bass guitars and keyboards.

        I simply used your nomiclacture shown above subtracting the prefix “www.”

        How do I know I’m not being mixed in soil full of propaganda in the heat of the sun by a man flipping s fake rake? This and my last reply are not currently posted. Pleases correct your response to the orininal post or I will feel obligated to do so

        • Dear TFN,
          Thank you for your interest however here is a honorable cigar forum.
          To entertain yourself please go and enroll into related colleges in your country. I am sure there are a few free colleges that provide such “entertainment”department. You have proved your success by not being aware of BACKLINK term as you mentioned BACKLINE in your comment.
          We as CigarAnalysis family congratulate you and wish you many more successes

          • Neither one of you know proper english grammar. I now feel less intelligent after reading each of your comments. I appreciate the useful information provided by thjs site. However, both of you gentleman need to further your education on the English language.

          • I would love to know if David can speak and write fluently in two languages. I appreciate what you gentlemen do, and I for one have saved many hundreds of $ on this site. I barely can read or write in my own language (English), lol! Again you guys are amazing, thank you for your time and information.

        • I want to buy some cigars , but i live in Viet nam. Can you ship to Viet nam

  4. Are there any websites that sell online authentic cubans from ASIA, specifically Hong Kong?

    • cigarsofhabanos (edited by cigaranalysis) in Hk….. I’ve ordered from them numerous times and even met the owner …. good stuff, great prices…. I’ve even once returned a box (only coz i didn’t like the strong blend, so kept one box that i opened and returned the unopened one) …. very good service and they post with a tracking number.

      • Cigarsofhabanos is an absolute rip off, I have placed a large order on their site (>$1000) and a week later I was informed that some items were not available in stock and a refund will be issued for them. 6 weeks later still no refund and every time I sent an email to them, a person named Ravi, her answer was “the refund will be credited next week” they took my money and didn’t ship the order. ABSOLUTE RIPOFF!!!

  5. Cigar One will not deliver unopened boxes of cigars. Search online reviews and you will find this is the case with all their shipments. I placed two orders for a total of 6 full boxes of cigars and everyone arrived with the seals broken and previously opened. I’ve ordered from other companies that take 4-5 weeks for cigars to arrive, but at least box I’ve received from them were unopened with original seals intact.

  6. Doug michigan

    CIGARS OF HABANOS- I ordered a box of Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2 and Petit Robustos. Both full boxes had seals that had been cut and boxes opened prior to shipping. The cigars out of the box and after sitting in humidor for a couple weeks had cracking wrappers, cigars were tight in some places and loose in others.
    Highly suspicious and poor quality cigars. I will not order again from Cigars of HABANOS.
    I wish there was a feature to upload photos of cigars. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    • Dear Doug,

      Can you please share your cigars’ photos?
      Best Regards,

    • I have ordered over 10k in cigars from cigarsofhabanos….no issues

      • lmao. you don’t realize it, and most likely never will, but this means you have spent 10K on fakes.

      • Same. Have ordered from COH, Ihavanas and Top, and all three sell good quality, legit Cubans that compare w those I have had in Cuba and at various LCDHs. No problems whatsoever. CHEERS

    • I have had nothing but great results from COH. I’ve been a customer for 10 years. The proprietor, Ravi has always made good on any discrepancies. He has always answered emails within 48 hours. He also opens every box to make sure the cigars are in hood order.

      • Ordered 20+ boxes (every different brand of petite corona numerous times). Monte #4 were legit at first (to earn business) then were substituted w/only God knows what. Substitute was very peppery, no draw, darker and very inconsistent color, loose cap. Brought it to Ravi’s attention and he explained they have too high of volume for any quality control and didn’t offer a refund or credit. Currently looking for a new vendor.

        • I have ordered several boxes from COH and they were all legit. Numbers all checked out and they were all in good shape. Waiting on a box of Partagas SDN4s and a box of Bolivar Petite Coronas now.

          • Their cigars are clearly fake. Serial numbers checking out doesn’t mean jack, because all you need is one real serial number and you have 99 of them.

    • I have ordered from COH too. Everything there is 100% fake. Pretty funny that people can’t tell the difference.

      • Cigarsofhabanos is an absolute rip off, I have placed a large order on their site (>$1000) and a week later I was informed that some items were not available in stock and a refund will be issued for them. 6 weeks later still no refund and every time I sent an email to them, a person named Ravi, her answer was “the refund will be credited next week” they took my money and didn’t ship the order. ABSOLUTE RIPOFF!!!

    • Doug – I had an identical experience with COH, exact same cigar. I even requested to have boxes delivered unopened. They were all opened, and you could see where the original seal had been remover and another added over it. Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2…. No doubt in my mind they were not real or legit. This was Oct 2018.

  7. Doing the lord’s work with these posts!! Much appreciated. I’ve ordered from both TopCuban and CigarOne and while they’re both great, CigarOne has unbelievably fast shipping. I’ve ordered cigars from them and from a US cigar shop and received my Cubans first.

  8. How about Cigar Terminal? I have ordered twice and the seam to be Real Deal Cuban Cigars! Are the Real web Site?

  9. good site.

  10. Greetings,
    Has anyone ordered from They say they deliver to the U.S. but I’m a little worried that they are based out of the Cayman Islands. I recently heard of a large number of fake cigars that were confiscated recently? ANY good/bad feedback?

    Thank you,

    • Damian Cayman is the greatest guy who will take care of whatever you need! I have ordered multiple times from him and received my cigars in perfect condition and unopened seals. All authentic. I had ordered a box of BHK 52 and actually had received a vintage box of them for the same price as a 2017 box. I cannot emphasize enough how stress and worry free ordering from this site is.

      • I just finished a couple of transactions with Duty Free/Damian. The first round – 25 Churchill Monte’s – was OK but the cigars were very bland. Damian took from August last year to literally today to finally say that he couldn’t get my other order, 25 Romeo J’s, for me. Which I don’t understand. And with the very first order I ordered, as un-opened boxes, they came opened. To his credit, he took them back and had an unopened box sent (the above Monte’s). I think the problem with Duty Free cigars is that Damian is merely a middleman who has no control over what is sent to the customer (he said as much in his explanation regarding why my boxes arrived opened after explicit, repeated instructions to have them sealed) and they are trying to find cheap deals so they can offer lower prices, but I think that can result in lower quality and/or so-so service. Damian has personally been polite and professional, usually getting back to me within 48 hours. Overall I think that DFC sells authentic cigars (I cut one open of the bland ones to check:) but the quality and availability are unreliable so his lower prices are not worth it, unfortunately.

  11. Thank you so much for the site it really is a godsend. I was wondering about a callrd:

    I would greatly appreciate any information.

    • Dear Craig,

      Please read our page for more informations.
      This site is selling fake cigars.


      • is selling fakes. Bought my favorite – Partagas Serie D No 4. Bands were not embossed, wording wasn’t centered and they even had a “.” Where should not have been one. Stay away from that site

    • Hmmm…so you bought a couple things from COH, decided they were fake, and then proceeded to buy so many more from them that you confirmed that their stock is “100% fake”? Hahah, that’s hilarious! You aren’t real bright, are you?

      See, I have also smoked many of the cigars I have ordered from COH in Cuba and at different LCHDs. I know what’s real and what isn’t. It’s interesting that you can go on any review site, YouTube, Reddit…and you are LITERALLY the only person who says COH sells fakes. Literally.
      The sticks from COH have all been 100% legit. Funny how haters like you make yourself feel superior by thinking you are some sort of Cuban expert. What a joke. Thanks for the laugh…uh…”Sir Winston”! Hahaha, as if.

  12. hi
    how about

    • Dear grach,

      We can not say something about iHavanas but everybody knows that they are the same of Cigarsofhabanos. Same site system.
      So we will inform all readers when we made a test order from ihavanas.

    • Alston T Burge

      Hey grach,
      We’ve (me and family members) have been using ihavanas for years and they are absolutely the real McCoy. I’ve been smoking cigars for 30+ years and 20+ of those just Cubans, I can tell the difference just by the cigar and the taste always gives it away. Bryan is a great guy to work with. Shipment always arrives about 10 days from order date, including weekends.

  13. Thank you for this website. You list Swiss Cigar Bank as reputable, but I do not see anyone reporting them as reputable. Just the opposite in fact. Can you please confirm authenticity? Many thanks!

  14. Hi, is a decent store to trust? I ordered from them twice. The first one arrived in 12 days and everything was just fine. However the second one wasn’t so good. I waited up for three weeks and started to contact them by e-mails telling them that I failed to track my package. I didn’t receive any response until I left them a message via the Messenger. Eventually I didn’t receive the package at all. Although they returned my money, the thing that got me so mad of them is their slow response. Another guy even left a message at their facebook page doubting if they are out of business.

    So I just want to know if it’s a trustful cigar store, thanks.

  15. I am curious if there is any stores that do not open boxes before shipping them out to the customer? I want to order some Cuban cigars but I don’t like the fact that someone else is touching my cigars or opening my boxes.

    • Poster above is exactly right. Why do these shops open our cigars? They cut the seals and open the box and they say Oh we just want to check the box for freshness or quality, that’s B.S. We want to buy Cuban Cigars from dealers who respect us enough to let us break the seals. Without it, even if they are real, it cast doubt.

      • Hi Thomas, this is exactly why I started making my own trips to Havana. Every box is completely sealed with receipts from LCDH or GEC Caracol Houses. Shipping only to US and Canada. For a little bit more money, you get a perfectly sealed, original box that nobody has touched or tampered with and if there are any quality issues, I will take it up with the shop owners in Havana next time down. Take a look!

        • Are you guys f****** serious. These are rolled by HAND. Meaning, people touch them. Retailers open and inspect boxes so that they know the quality they are selling. I wouldn’t want to sell hundreds or thousands of boxes of cigars that I never looked at. Doesn’t make any sense. HOWEVER, if the consumer wants the option to have a sealed box, maybe possibly implementing a waiver, so that if they do not like the quality they receive, they can not return them. I prefer my cigars being inspected. Consistency is not Cuba’s forte. Not by a long shot. Also, they are handmade agriculture products. Inherently inconsistent.

    • larry t mariano

      cuban lou’s sent my box unopened

    • larry t mariano

      cuban lou’s does open boxes my box was seal and checked out

    • cubancigar-shop in Victoria BC gives the option to leave the box unopened. You generally have to request it – but the owner has always confirmed orders by phone with me, and he usually asks if I want them inspected or sent unopened.

  16. how about ? A new website and selling some very rare cigars.

  17. Some body order cigars from

  18. Your list is wrong! Top Cubans sells FAKES!

    • I think their cigars that are on sale are fake, but when you buy the full priced ones they are real. I have gotten some really good quality stuff from them, but no longer trust them. still much better than Ihavanas or COH which are 100% fake garbage.

      • You seem to have a personal vendetta against coh and ihavanas with no proof at all. There isn’t a giant conspiracy to send a mix of fake and real cigars.

        • Cigarsofhabanos is an absolute rip off, I have placed a large order on their site (>$1000) and a week later I was informed that some items were not available in stock and a refund will be issued for them. 6 weeks later still no refund and every time I sent an email to them, a person named Ravi, her answer was “the refund will be credited next week” they took my money and didn’t ship the order. ABSOLUTE RIPOFF!!!

      • Sir winston

        Do you have some sort of condition like down syndrome? Top cubans, iHav and COH sell real cigars.

  19. Hi Edgar,

    DFCC suppliers are based in Switzerland and product is also shipped from there. Our logistics office is based Cayman Islands.

  20. Why does CigarOne open all boxes of cigars before sending them…they refused to send unopened boxes

  21. Bought a box of mille fleurs partagas 25 count from swisscigarbank and compared it to cigarone and top Cuban vendors same cigars and tge ones from swiss cigarbank look diffrenet very sloppy, still long fillers inside but taste like shit compared to vendors from Switzerland, makes me think they’re fake unless they are just extremely bad quality b-grade cuban, would deffinetly not buy from there again vendor ships from China

    • Cigars from Swiss Cigar Bank are fakes. The cigars are made in China and shipped from China. They look great but are not Habanos. The Chinese make a good looking fake. I compared the cigar from Swiss Cigar Bank with a real Habano and the difference stands out. First, the wrapper color is darker — dark like a Dominican Habano wrapper. Then there’s the distinct aroma of a real Monte #2 Habano. And then I attempted to verify authenticity with and this box number was not registered. I have ordered real Habanos and these guys are frauds. LCDH is a legit site.

  22. Swiss Cigar Bank ( https://swisscigarbank) are hackers. I ordered Cuban Montecristo #2’s and they were clearly fakes. Nice looking fakes but compared to the real Monte #2 Habanos, there’s no comparison. I have pictures of the difference in the cigars, color, aroma, and I checked Habanos verification and the box number is not registered. The box arrived with the fake seal cut open, the cigars had bubble wrap around them, and the box constructions was not that of a real Habanos. There were all sorts of stickers on the box that are no typical of real Habanos. Lastly, shipped from Switzerland, they arrived in the US via San Francisco — odd? LCDH ships from Switzerland and arrives in the US via New York in an original factory sealed box with an aroma distinctive of a real Habanos Monte #2. I also check the Habanos verification code and they are authentic every time. Stay away from Swiss Cigar Bank (

  23. any word on Cuban Lou’s ?

    • larry t mariano

      just order from them only took ten days to receive my order will use them again,also gives tracing number so you can fallow your order

  24. Anthony Sherman

    I’ve used Cigars of Cuba for some time now. They are courteous and extremely efficient. The cigars are always well packed and in great condition. As to the “genuine v fake” argument raging… All I can say is that living in the UK has a price. We pay ridiculous amounts of tax, which accounts for the huge trade in knockoffs. Why pay two and a half grand for a handbag when you can get an extremely good copy for around £2-300 or even less. However, as to the cigars: Just because they can be bought cheaply doesn’t mean they are necessarily fakes. It simply means your not paying the tax or a ridiculous UK retail mark-up: And long may it remain so.

  25. Marius Mocian

    Did anyone know the “cuban cigar online”? It is a trust online shop? I ask, because I’ve see they have many rare cigars(ex. Behike and Talisman 2017) at low prices. I wonder if there original ones, or fake.

  26. Hello, I was looking at your fake cuban cigar list, And also your legitimate list of cuban cigars.I did see listing of so call site as finest cigars. is that the same as finest cuban cigar. I didn’t see finest cuban cigars on either a fake or legit list.

  27. Hi Cigar Analysis,

    Would you recommend is it legit? Are the cigars fake or real?

    Thank you

    • Hey Romain. I bought a 25 box of montecristo no.4 and 10 box of cohiba maduro 5 from them over 7 years ago and still have some in my humador. Box seals and cigar bands were legit for both and consistant size and colour for all.

      Not much to go on with being a while since I ordered from them but that’s what I have to twll you.

      I just ordered from COH and hope all turns out as well as It did with Cigar Terminal years ago.

    • Hey Romain, I bought a 25box of montecristo no.4 and 10 box of cohiba maduro 5 from cigarterminal in march of 2015 and the cigars were all of great colour and size. The box labels and labels were legit. The cigar bands were legit as well.

      I would buy from them again but there supply is low in what I want right now so I decided to buy cigars from COH.
      25 box of montecristo no.2 and
      montecristo puritos 25×4 just the other day. I will keep up with the post and supply photos, info as the progression of the shippment and quality as time passes. I live in alberta canada as well.

  28. Some body knows is read shop cigars or fake shop? Thanks

    • I just purchased a box of epicure no.2 50 cab from I will update you to let you know my experience.

  29. Hi,

    I need to source boxes of Partagas Serie D 4’s for a bucks party and have found a site in Hong Kong called with very reasonable pricing for a box of 25 – $350 US ($500 AUD) In Australia they are always selling for $800. Does anybody know if is a legitimate site? Should I be weary of a box of 25s for $350 USD or is that reasonable and we just pay too much in Australia? (Which is usually the case!)


  30. Alston T Burge

    Need to add La Casa Del Habano in St. Kitts, they don’t get any more legit than these guys.
    Just visited there little shop and was blown a way.
    Alston Burge

  31. Hello, looking for great Luxury Cigar
    Check this out!

  32. Has anyone ever used Cuban cigars online from Montreal

  33. Does La Casa Del Habanos Hamburg sell real cubans? It was a redirect from the website

  34. I meant a redirect from which takes you to la casa del habanos hamburg.

  35. Hashem Alhashemi

    I would add, tried it many time and they are quick to ship and if you have special requests, they will try to find it for you.

  36. VIP cigars have repeatedly ignored my emails over order’s issues. As I am in the UK and they are in Switzerland, how can I sort this out?

  37. Cigarsofhabanos is an absolute rip off, I have placed a large order on their site (>$1000) and a week later I was informed that some items were not available in stock and a refund will be issued for them. 6 weeks later still no refund and every time I sent an email to them, a person named Ravi, her answer was “the refund will be credited next week” they took my money and didn’t ship the order. ABSOLUTE RIPOFF!!!
    And the boxes that I received were ALL OPENED, even though I requested sealed boxes!

  38. I’ve been a customer of COH for years and have had an occasional problem which never involved fakes.
    Ravi is their only problem, very rude and terse!!!
    The good side is that you never have to worry about receiving fakes!!!
    Good luck !!


  40. Received my first order from Mail Cuban Cigars, which was rum and cigars, and the shipping time was too bad.

  41. kevin chambers

    Has anyone ever heard of I seen this page for the 1st time 9/1/20 prices look about right except 2 or 3 boxes are really cheap.

  42. Hello guys, has anyone ordered from online-cigars? delays? legit? fake?
    thanks and good smokes

  43. Hashem Alhashemi

    Tried EGM Cigars,, very good service and authentic cigars. You should look into this website.

  44. I’ve used COH for 8 years now. No problems at all. They used to ship out of Hong Kong to North America and now ship out of Hungary. Like some say they don’t have everything in stock in Europe. I ordered a box of RASS and was informed they don’t have it in stock, and did not charge my CC. They sent me a spread sheet of all the Cuban cigars they had in stock with date stamps and factory codes of all the boxes.
    I go to Cuba once a year and have Mules bring back cigars from LCDH stores. I always get my favorites, and I can say they COH cigars are the same as direct from Cuba. Yes you get an occasional plugged one, wrapper color changes from year to year. If you smoke enough Cuban cigars you’ll know if there the real thing.
    All boxes from COH have checked out OK. Construction of box, Seals, barcodes, parchment paper, cedar
    cover in box, holographic on seal, everything as it is on the boxes from LCDH from Cuba.
    One more tip for all you who think your getting fakes, run your finger over the Cuban government seal
    (the one with the barcode) from the holographic end towards the front lip of the box, you will feel a slight bump, the factory seal is underneath the Government seal. if it’s not there then yes it’s something to be concerned about. Also the micro printed numbers are on the government seal in a few places (barcode numbers) these cannot be made by photo copying the seal. You need a magnifying glass to see them.

  45. Looking for information to find out if their selling real or fake cubans

  46. Hi guys,
    I used to buy cigars more than 20 years from puroexpress but now they stop to send in Europe. After reading all these reviews I decided to order from ihavanas or COH. But I have a questions about these sites. Does someone knows from where send their cigars; I mean if they send from place which located in European zone or somewhere else ;


    Can you tell me if these are good sites to buy Cuban cigars from. Thank you
