    Nubs, cains, olivas,padilla,camacho, man o wars, pepins, tatuaje the list goes on and on. Prices vary hugely in the NC market too. Check out the non cuban reviews, see what interests you then track some down, plenty of us can help with the latter

      Yeah i emailed him to and asked him to photo the hologram for me to view etc.. in return i got a stroppy email back saying he paid $600 for these and he wouldnt be selling them for just over ?200 on ebay.. (which made no sense), he refused to give any details of the markings on the packaging, just sent a snotty email..

      I would avoid these if i were you...

          well i never even considered buying cigars off ebay but after reading this i thought id look to see whats on offer and after a few emails to sellers found some cohiba robusto for sale.it was an auction for two 'empty' cigar tubes but after mailing i was informed the robusto were included.I enquired how the seller had come buy the cigars and was told he originated from cuba and always brought some back after he had visited there.Why i continued with this after that old cliche i have no idea but i'd had a few whiskies and thought for 12 quid what have i got to lose? well turns out 12 quid is the answer.they arrived today and were very well packaged but upon removing them from the bubble wrap the bands just fell off,then i noticed the bands were different widths and the printing on one was quite bad,also the two robusto are different lengths and widths.now either cohiba have some quality control issues or im a mug.i'm going with the latter

                I hope you have reported the scammer to ebay for 1) flaunting their rules on selling tobacco products & 2) selling fake goods.

                        No reporting I wouldn't do, I'm an adult and went into this with my eyes wide open if it was hundreds of pounds then I might be bitter but as it stands I will take it on the chin.

                          I reckon selling fake cigars, as well as being illegal, is immoral and further, the perpetrator should not be allowed to transgress again.

                          It's not a victimless crime. Next time it might be with several boxes, taking ?00's off BOTL & providing them with rubbish cigars.

                          Just my 2p's worth.

                            He technically didn't do anything wrong since the auction was suppose to be for empty tubes. The seller could play the "I thought they were empty" if Ebay contacts him about it
