Revisiting Our famous Genuine Counterfeit Cuban Cigars
Today, we turn back the clock to the year 2000, when we launched a brand called Genuine Counterfeit Cuban cigars. Thought by many at first to be a gimmick or a cheap knock-off brand, we quickly surprised the throngs of hesitant smokers with a cigar that was as close in taste and quality (if not better) than many of the premium Cuban cigars on the market at that time. So, what was the idea behind this brand?
All through the 1980s and 1990s there was an influx of fake Cuban cigars flooding the market due to the stringent requirements of bringing them back to the states, and, with so many fake Cuban cigars finding their way into the mouths of unsuspecting smokers, we decided to create a cigar that is a “GENUINE” counterfeit. To accomplish this task, we turned to Nick Perdomo, and his famous factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Known for creating some of the finest Cuban-style blends on the market, we knew he was the best man to get the job done right.
Genuine Counterfeit Cuban Cigars are expertly rolled with a premium blend of perfectly aged Honduran and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos covered by a sturdy Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that was carefully chosen by Nick himself for its stunning clay red color and nice oily patina. To add even more eye-appeal, and to guarantee a cool effortless draw, the cigars are featured in six popular square-pressed vitolas. In addition, to satisfy real cigar purists that love the old-world Cuban shapes, handmade premium Genuine Counterfeit Cuban cigars are also available in a stunning 4.75 x 52 Perfecto, and a 6 x 54 Torpedo. Then, after numerous quality control inspections to assure that every Counterfeit is perfectly rolled, no plugs or soft spots, and each wrapper is evenly colored, these tasty gems are packed in retro cedar box packaging made to look like the smuggled cigar boxes of the 1960s.
Thanks to the expert blending skills of the artisans at the famous Perdomo factory, these beauties offer you the potency and complexity of a genuine Cuban cigar with its earthy, sweet, nutty, and spicy medium to full-bodied profile. Even the naturally sweet-smelling room note is reminiscent of those great old pre-embargo Habanos of yesteryear. And, to sweeten the deal, all this authentic Cuban-style goodness comes at a very affordable price! So why take the chance of buying an expensive phony Cuban when you can order a real Counterfeit Cuban from us for half the price? Trust us, these cigars are so darn tasty, you’ll need a passport and a plane ticket to find a cigar this good!
