    My first pack of cigars (Cohiba Siglo II)

    My friend came back from Cuba (he goes once a year) and I got this 5pk of Siglo II's from him. I haven't tried one yet, but they smell great!

    Sorry to say my Brother but..............
    (and I am not joking around)
    They are fakes.
    Siglo II's are Petite Coronas
    Those look to me like they are petite Torpedos.
    and
    The bands are a pretty crappy reproduction.
    Look int oit a bit more but they are definately FAKES

    I wasn't sure about them either, as from what I heard about how they were obtained, it all seemed very 'shady'.

    I just noticed when I was taking the pictures that some of the bands were faded, others weren't. And I'm guessing that true premium stogies all have nice colourful bands on them....

    GRRR what a disappointment. And there's no way I'm spending $150 or whatever it costs to buy them up here.

    Although I'm not that dismayed.. they were cheap (I think), and they smell great.. not like the cheap cigarette type shredded leaf you get in cheap-e sticks.

    And I'm more than grateful to both of the people who made it possible to get them to me, so all is still well in my world

    Those bands are brutal.

    Thanks, I don't feel so bad now I guess it's time to get my rookie mistakes out of the way while I'm still a rookie. For premiums I think I'll stick to stores now (although I hope these ones still taste nice). If I was allowed to bring more than just 2 boxes of 25ct back into Canada it might even be worth a trip down there in cheap season (middle of summer), heh.

    I see now what the Siglo II's really look like: (oops, sorry, can't post links)

    If they came outta Cuba perhaps they are cuban cigars.
    Take the bands off and call them "custom Rolls"

    Also, if you are one of the daring. try and smoke one. They may not be that bad, just not Sig II's nor Cohibas.

    It's all how you look at it.
    Plus it was only a five pack. Right now I believe a cab of 25 is selling for $168 approx.
    Which is still not a BAD price. I have seen them cheaper but not much.

    Try it, you might like it. hahahahaha

    LOL, I didn't think they came in 5 packs either.
    The night before JFK signed the Cuban Embargo he had Pierre Sallinger buy him 1200 H. Upmann Petit Corona cigars. How's that for government hypocrisy!

    Bummer, but you never know, they might be decent smokes, they came from Cuba so its Cuban tobacco. I'd dissect one before smoking any of them though. Makes sure there's no nasty stuff jammed in there.

    How do these guys not even bother to match the name on the box with a known vitola? Maybe they're too busy making and selling fakes to even care ...
