During my most recent trip, a gentleman gave me his 3 remaining cigars from a sampler pack he purchased. He did not want to travel with them, but I suspected he wanted to get rid of them since they were so horrible. The labels were poorly made; the filler tobacco was chopped and the binder was missing; and they were not smoke-able because there were so poorly made. Please beware, any Cuban cigars not bought at the official La Casa del Habano store will most likely be a poorly made counterfeits. I have seen many stores, including one in the malls selling these rip-offs.
