Cuban cigars are back, at least legally. But, they haven’t gotten any cheaper, yet. So if you’re going to spend the cash you best be sure you’re smoking the real thing. I’m pretty sure there are more fake Cuban cigars out there than there are fake Ray Bans. As with just about any luxury purchase, there are things to look for to determine if your Cuban cigar is legit. Cigar Obsession has some solid tips in the video above so you can rest assured that Cuban is actually a Cuban.

Footnotes:

#1 Tip for avoiding fakes, don’t buy from unauthorized stores/sellers.

#1 Tip for determining if you have a fake, google for a known good band and compare EVERYTHING.

Note, even then, unless it was from a good source, it can still be ANYTHING inside, as sometimes real bands are put on crappy cigars.
