    These sound just like the D4s I bought recently. I'll see if I can post pictures also to get opinions before naming.


    (edit) camera battery is on charge, photos soon)

    Hi Skyhigh,

    The box in your picture is actually identical to mine. The reason I questioned if mine were genuine was because they application of the band is very scrappy for the most part, the ends don't perfectly overlap on alot of the bands and some have white patches as if they've been stuck together and pulled apart so that the red on the label has been pulled off.

    I did get the habanos leaflet in mine too so maybe I'm just worrying for nothing. Perhaps Partagas just don't have such strict quality controls on the banding of their cigars recently? (he asks hopefully...)

    pics to follow

    Don't forget pictures of the box, seals and all (one with the lid closed preferably) which will help identify a degree of authenticity Morris.

    is it posted somewhere that we're not allowed to discuss sourcing?

    pic of 2 sticks next to each other from different trusted sources. Taking into account the different sized boxes both boxes are identical in markings apart from the 10 box been stamped in blue and the 25 box stamped black. 10 box box code MAS AGO 08 and the 25 box code STA SEP 09.

    No that's fine. The issue here is that it's being suggested they are not real.

    The below link to a thread in ICC is very very educative, it does not only show from which website an experienced smoker got ripped off but also brings a very important light on smokerings.com, a website that comes up quite high when you google various internet retailer names. It lists them along allegedly independant reviews. After reading this thread you will keep an eye more cautious than ever on what you read there :

    The more shortens my cigar, the more I must reach out to the ashtray. A boss also has his worries.

    There was a thread not too long back concerning variation in Montecristo bands here. It doesn't seem to be as uncommon as you'd hope...
