AUTHENTIC CIGAR SHOPS

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;

  1. hi guys
    has anyone ordered from montefortunacigars.com ? it seems like a fake site and i am not sure to trust it.

  2. NOTICE on PRICING

    Habanos has announced its annual price increase.
    As a result, we will be increasing our prices on all Cuban cigars.
    These price changes will be reflected by the end of May 2021.
    Mail Cuban Cigars.com

  3. hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone has order can cigars from cigarone.com?

  4. Has anyone heard of and used Swiss Cuban Cigars company? Are they fake?

  5. Is Friends of Habanos out of Australia a legit online resource for Cuban cigars?

    • Christopher Johnson

      Yes. I have been a customer of FOH for years. They are wonderful people and are well connected to Habanos, S.A. as an official cigar merchant.

  6. Has anyone ordered from Bestofcigarshop.com or can tell me if they are fake or not.

    • Brian, bestofcigarshop.com is very suspicious. Bolivar Royal Coronas for $950 and Cohiba BHK 54 for $950 and all 3 sizes of BHK are all in stock.

    Another good company is Cigar Terminal out of Switzerland. I have ordered from them several times and they have always been tops. Great prices, along with shrink wrapping with Boveda and they are authentic. I just got three boxes of Romeo y Julietas and their last box of Hoyo de Monterrey Escogidos. They were sealed and the bar codes checked out with the online Habanos S.A. authenticator.

  8. damm wish I did a little digging on Swiss cuban cigar just got robbed Montecristo Edmundo aren’t even the right color and the silo v1 burn white ash even thought all the labels are authentic there just fake fu– don’t buy from them

  9. Watch out for Cubanlous Cuban Lou’s in Switzerland. I got a 5-pack of Cohiba Siglo III in June 2021. The box arrived and the 5-pack box had no “Habanos” corner sticker on the top right and there was no white sticker on the back showing date code and factory code. Every cigar was plugged solid, no draw what so ever. They claim it was just a bad box, but it was obviously fake, but they don’t admit it. I am a very experience Cuban smoker. Back in the early 2000’s Habanos was having production problems due to high demand. Many hard draw and plugged cigars in 2002-2003 box dates. They mostly fixed the issues. So 5 out of 5 Cohibas with bad and plugged draw? Not likely, these days.

  10. CigarOne, TopCubans, Cigars of Cuba, all good.

  11. I was told by the nice people at The Cigar or LeCigare that they do not ship to the US. This was as of July 2021. Anyone else been told this? They have a nice selection of cigars, so it is a shame they won’t ship to the US.

  12. Cigarone is a disaster. They were good at one time but they now sell cigars that appear to be fake and don’t respond when you complain. I’d avoid them like the plague. If you have $250 to spend, buy 5 White Owls and put $245 in your pocket. Bruce S

    Hi

    Does anyone know if online-cigars.com is legit?

    Please advise

  14. Hey guys is mailcubancigars.com legit? I found a box of Cubans but they’re sold out everywhere but there.

    • Hi Hanes, Yes, I have bought from them before but they only accept crypto which I bought from crypto.com with my card. The box was legit and checked on Habanos verification. Was informed also that will have cards and other payments very soon available.

    • Mail Cuban cigars is duty free cuban cigars re-badged as a new site. The guy “Daniel” that promotes them is really Damian Bancroft, who just happens to be the man behind this site. MCC is a cigar broker, and do not actually have most of the cigars listed on their site in hand. If you order this box of unicorn cigars advertised on their page, God knows how long you’ll be waiting for it. If they can’t even accept credit cards, what does that tell you?! Too many chargebacks from frustrated customers! Avoid like the plague!

      • Hello, That Guy? I am Daniel who is a sales rep. and marketing for Mail Cuban Cigars In Bern and Geneva Switzerland. We will soon accept cards using a name not mentioning Cuban Cigars as so many other online vendors do for their US clients and with Visa and Mastercard US cardsholders. We have never been associated with DFCC or this Damian. We did find out that the web designer who was contracted to build our website took a shortcut and copied info from the DFCC. Yes, we are drop shippers and openly advertise this on our website just like anyone having a Shopify site or even like Amazon who promotes products for other companies and will drop ship from a different address. We are also a broker if you wish to negotiate rare products and don’t wish to openly advertise and want to be anonymous until the transaction is agreed upon. Now based in Geneva, Switzerland we have sourced proven authorized Habanos SA distributors for their region including the most renowned from Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, Malta & Canary Islands. We choose these countries for the bonded tax-free zone for import and exports, thus saving not having to add an import tax and passing this cost to the customer. These verified wholesale sources also have websites online and we do get a discount brokering their harder to sell hard to find inventory.

      • I disagree, I have purchased from them over US$5,000 using my Bitcoin and they always deliver within a month or less. I receive multiple packages from addresses in Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium. I did see a negative review on Mail Cuban Cigars and believe it’s an opportunist who is getting free boxes of Cuban’s from other popular online vendors.

  15. I am interested in ordering from mailcubancigars. Nice rare boxes. Has anyone else been successful ? Thanks, Steve.

  16. I have ordered from https://ciggarosemporium.com/ a couple of times and recently took in the new Hupmann connoisseur No 2 the box was a device I think they need more publicity they doing some awesome work out here.

  17. https://ciggarosemporium.com/ I just checked this website out the inventory and it’s very extensive with much rare and stock that is not currently available from many other legit vendors online. Like Behikes 52 and 54 are in stock. I have suspicions that this is another latest website launch from the same persons that started habanosticks.com and lacasadelhabano.net and rarecigars.com there are many red flags.
