Cuban cigars have always been highly desirable. However, with every authentic product comes a knock-off or a fake. Business Insider conducted an experiment to highlight the key ways you will be able to tell if your Cuban cigars are replicas or the real deal. Here are a few things to look for:
- Look at the quality of the box, watermark, general surgeons’ warning, and tax stamp. Are they all included? Does the watermark have a hologram?
- Look at how well the actual cigar is constructed. Does it smoke well? Is the wrapper smooth or falling apart?
- Look at the cigar bands. Are the cigar bands uniform?
- There should be a triple cap on the foot of the cigar. Cuban cigars typically have a flat foot
