Fully 90 percent of "Cuban" cigars sold in Canada are fakes. Just like those you may hear of being ordered from Hong kong or most of that region of the world.
Also just a word here about legality. It is ILLEGAL for a American citizen to buy or consume ANY product of Cube even when your NOT in the USA. Yes that's right if your a us citizen in Canada or any other country and buy a Cuban cigar or are given one and smoke it there your still in violation of US law. It is also unwise for a American citizen to put in writing on say a forum they have or have had a cigar or any other item from post embargo Cuba.
Customs is not known for going after people for this but they CAN and have. Many who order them online get there order and inside the box is a letter saying the items have been seized and gives you a number to call to claim them otherwise the matter will be dropped. IE you call your in trouble you do nothing then you just write off the money you spent as they will not charge you unless you call and tell you the items are yours.
I do not mean to be the bg here but just thought a little food for thought may be good at this point for those who are US citizens. Those of you who are not have fun and enjoy what you can.
