Dear aficionados,

We are more than happy to come up with another  discussion. Today, we are going to discuss on fake Cohiba 1966 Edicion Limitada 2011 sold by FinestCubanCigars.

As you are all aware, in our previous article Finest Cuban Cigars is Fake or Real! (Part 1), we had tried to feed you on the fake Cohiba Siglo VI. Right after we published the relevant article, suddenly FCC had ceased selling box of 25 and start to sell 20 sticks. Later on they started to sell box of 25 again but with a different price. Current price of Siglo VI 25 is 766 USD whereas the old price was 479 USD. Do you think the reason in such increment just because they started to sell real Siglo VI? What was the reason of increasing a product price up to 287 USD at one time?

Let’s get to today’s topic. How can you distinguish real and fake Cohiba 1966 purchased over FCC? Let’s look at the details.

As you know, Habanos S.A is very particular about the box productions. Dimensions and shapes of the boxes must be same all the time and never differs. However Cohiba 1966 which was purchased over FCC is really different. You wonder how? Lets check it out,

As you can see below images, there are some discrepancies in terms of dimensions between fake and real ones.

We are all agreed that both fake and real boxes have hologram and UV water mark. But the bizarre thing, fake one’s warranty seal is lighter and blurry. Not clear as much as the real one. The real one’s is sharp and clear. Focus on fonts! how clear. Please check out warranty seal, hologram and UV water mark on your boxes if you ever purchased over FCC. This UV water marks are not a result of advanced-technology and beginners hardly can realize whether it is fake or not. So that most of smokers might face being cheated.

and BOMBBB.. When you check your product’s barcode serial number with Habanos website, what should the result be? Of course it has to match with your product. Another word, if you check for your COHIBA 1966, the result has to show, it is COHIBA 1966. However FCC tried to remove this barcode serial number on Cohiba 1966 but unfortunately they could not manage to cut all the way and left some of the part of it. When you scan this part with any barcode scanner application through your mobile phone, what to see? The code is  000013975158 and when you check this code with Habanos website, result shows up as ROMEO Y JULIETA ROMEO No.3. This is really a BOMB. Not much things to say!

Now lets have a look inside the box. It has been already proved that it is fake at the first stage but anyway lets carry on.

4. As you can see below image, the left one is REAL and right one is FAKE. Look at the dimensions. Dimensins are totally different.

5.Look at the clasp with cohiba logo in front of the box. Real one is sharp and clear whereas fake one is blurry.

6. Now lets look at the cigars finally. Below you can find the real box and authentic cigars. Other box and cigars are fake. Fake cigars look very good and wrapper color, cohiba sticker and rings look also quite well-done. But did you realize the problem here? Normally while Habanos produce the boxes, they apply different dimensions for the boxes than the cigar’s dimensions. Like boxes are slightly bigger than the cigars. By doing this, Habanos intend to avoid any damage might be imposed on the cigars inside the box and give some room in order to maintain the air circulation inside the box. Now after this, look at the fake box and cigars in it, you will see there is almost no any room and cigars look like touching the box. We think, FCC did not take this into account 🙂

This is the proof of purchase of this product from finestcubancigars.com

CONCLUSION;

Especially beginner smokers should be careful before buying expensive products. Otherwise they might get cheated and waste their money.

We also have lots of question marks regarding the structure of this online website not only its products;

*If they are a legal company why then they do not reveal their registered name in Hong Kong?
*Why they do not have a local number instead of using toll free US number?
*Why they do not reveal their Hong Kong address and only Switzerland address is available on their website?
*Why they do not have a local Switzerland phone number? and what is the use of putting Switzerland address?
*We found this on their website “We have been distributors of Habanos Cuban Cigars since 1997.”
This basically means that they are official importer of habanos in Hong Kong. But when you go to Habanos S.A’s website as you can see below,
Distributors of Habanos S.A
Official importer of Habanos S.A is The Pacific Cigar Co. Ltd. so now are they making fool of people? leave it to you all to judge this.

We suggest you to ask this basic but very important questions to this company before place order. We hope that Mr. Bill will reply your all questions asap.

  1. I don’t get it? I’ve bought cigars from finest many times. Never once had any of my cigars came back fake. Also never did the boxes look fake or the barcode. Plus may cigar bloggers/reviewers recommend them, I wouldn’t have found them otherwise. And we’re talking about top cigar reviewers with members and respected amongst us cigar smokers. You’re doing them a disservice with the blog.

    • Dr Joe is that you?!?! Lol

      I am completely thrown off by these articles (part 1 and 2) I’ve purchased multiple boxes from FCC, and everything always looked right (and smoked right). But, those siglo 6s (from part 1) you received wouldve had anyone suspicious! Has FCC gotten back to you with any response? Any explanation??

      • Dear Nico,
        As we highlighted in the above article in ATTENTION section, we do not claim that all of their products are fake as we have yet to try all of them. We had only evaluated a few of them and published our results with proofs already.
        We answered all the necessary response in the previous reply. You may want to click on the below link to see it.

    • I agree with you totally. Never had an issue with authenticity with FCC. And I’ve never been offered free sticks for a review. I have been given a $5 off coupon code for leaving a review. ( positive OR negative )
      And in the grand picture $5 is very minute when spending $300+ on some boxes of cigars.

  4. Someone can help me ? cigars-of-cuba is FAKE or REAL

    the same SWISS.

    Thank you

  5. Bought some sticks from finestcubancigars, some sticks are real, but the bhk’s are fake, taste bad, bands are different with my inventory. tried to leave bad comments on finestcubancigars website but never posted.

    I guess all bad comments or reviews are not allowed on their website. thats why i can’t find bad reviews on their website.

  6. Hello Cigar Analysis, I made a purchase from Finest Cuban Cigars website and dissected one of their cigars (Cohiba Siglo 1). I made a side by side comparison of the real Cuban counterpart I acquired from the duty free shop in Canada and the fake one I bought from Finest Cuban Cigars. Can you please do an analysis of the photos I took? I would greatly appreciate some professional observations and feedback. Thank you for your time.

  7. Just ordered a box of chohiba robusto on finestcubancigars on 2017 sep.01, the box was badly damaged and those cigars smelled like Davidoff cigars, I’m wondering it is fake……

  8. Hello Cigar Analysis, I made a purchase of Cohiba Maduro 5 from FCC and I have a doubt about the authenticity as well. I have no idea whether you guys have tried that as well. I would be really appreciated if you have a clue. Thank you so much about these info.

  9. I think this site is fake. The English is atrocious and right away that is an indicator that the company/organization is low budget and not well funded.

  10. Hi,
    I just got a box of cohiba siglo VI from finestcubancigars.com. It Looks like the real thing. I paid 766.00us dls. everything checks as legit. the only thing that bothers me is that on tre transparent paper that folds on the cigars there is a big space between habana , cuba. I had siglo II before. and i kept the box, they look very similar.

    Where can i Send you pics of it
