We are more than happy to come up with a new discussion. Today’s discussion is about FinestCubanCigars.com
We have some substantial evidences that prove Finest Cuban Cigars sells fake some of cuban cigars (not all of them)
At first, this company had sold totally authentic cuban cigars until they obtained a significant number of customers.they later started to do their business in a trick way just like selling fake cuban cigars including some special cigars (Cohiba Siglo VI,Cohiba 1966).
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.
Now we will be comparing 2 products that had been bought from Finest Cuban Cigars and will be more clear why we said that they are doing tricky business.
These both boxes were bought from Finest Cuban Cigars. Left one is Fake Cohiba Siglo VI and right one Authentic Cohiba Siglo II
1) Cohiba Siglo II’s seal label is in totally proper way and genuine (label colour,serial number and hologram).
However in the second and third shot, Cohiba Siglo VI’s seal label colour is light green and was deformed as if there was serial number on it. ( most of companies that ship to other countries remove micro serial number from boxes but not this much! you can have a look at our related article here)
2) In this photo, the barcode serial number was cut ( Removal of barcode serial number is a common practice. click for details), but the bizarre part of it;
Serial number was not cut properly and a small part is seen. You can download a barcode scanner app and when you scan this barcode, the result wil be 000013923089
According to this result, as you can see below, when you input the above code on Habanos official website, product name will show up as COHIBA SIGLO VI D-C-C/P-3-A/T-15
which means Cohiba Siglo VI Tubos (5×3 packs) but what we have is Cohiba Siglo VI SLB-VW-GPSR-M-n-25 in other word Cohiba Siglo VI (cab of 25).
So obviously they had stuck a different label belongs to different product!!!
3) Watch the golden rings on top and bottom of the band! on Siglo VI have different high which it should be but not too much difference!!!
4) Labels quality are totally disaster. you can easily see the difference between the 2 labels below.
5) Watch the comma between “Habana, Cuba” on the label. Fake Siglo VI’s comma is on the middle, real Siglo II’s one is close to “habana”
6) When you look at below transparent brand information papers, right one is what it is supposed to look like! but left one is bold and not clear and cohiba logo is very intense.
This is the proof of purchase of this product from finestcubancigars.com
After we released our article related to Cohiba Siglo VI, FinestCubanCigars.com has ceased selling Siglo VI (SLB 25). Instead they have started to sell 20 sticks.
This obviously means that buyers no longer can buy 25 sticks boxes (SLB 25) through them and thereby buyers would be unable to check barcode serial numbers as well as sealed label part on boxes. Also buyers wont be able to make any comparison with the Cohiba Siglo products purchased before and the one will be purchased.
As we emphasized before FinestCubanCigars mix up genuine and fake cigars and our assumptions has come truth by this last incident.
We will wait a reply from Finest Cuban Cigars about it.
Finest Cuban Cigars has released Cohiba Siglo VI SLB 25 again on their website. The product is for sale as 25 sticks not 20. We cannot make any comment on whether it is fake or authentic but we believe that after our article, they started to sell authentic product.
CubanCigars2u.com is belong to Finest Cuban Cigars as well.
The falsity of Cohiba Siglo VI has been detected purchased from Finest Cuban Cigars. To make any comments on the other products is also not possible since we cannot say whether it is fake or genuine about the products that have not been purchased yet. Soon another examination will be conducted on another product in here as well.
Hope to see you again on our next article…
