The current guarantee seal has numerous anti-counterfitting measures which can be verified with a magnifying glass and a fluorescent light (if you don't have a UV light).

    Yes, all of the above stuff is simple, but almost all fakes screw up one or more of the above. Those that don't are the good fakes (typically from Spain or the Canary Islands), but those now usually fail on the new seal code. The new seal code (usually 13 digits) can be verified on the Habanos.com website. When the code is entered on the website, the website displays the cigar and packaging info for the box.

    Note that these checks don't even involve looking at cigars or opening the box, but start with these as anytime these fail or can't be verified ("I threw out the box") then, as always, caveat emptor.
    Wait, are those in the photo yours Craig?

    What? Huh? Sorry, I was distracted by the post-orgasmic glow of the least-endowed of the three.

    Um, no, not my photo or my cigars. Sorry for the verb confusion. I was just going by what I have, and what I have seen elsewhere. Cohiba packaging sometimes uses different sticker placements and/or additional stickers and/or some on the box and some on the outer box, but the Behike packaging does not AFAIK, and places all stickers on the outside cardboard box in the usual places.

    There are some differences in the other packaging inside of the Behike box, but my point, I guess, is to know these things before you buy a cigar with such a premium price, and have a good relationship with your vendor.

    Just had a quick look at Craigslist (no relation ) and the presumed-fake Behike's are out there, with very nice-looking bands. No boxes yet, so these are probably all cigars brought back from tourists who went to Cuba.

    My off-the-top-of-my-head-guess is that the same outfit that pushed out the PSD4 and (IIRC) EL fakes a couple years ago (and resulting in all kinds of sh*t in online forums) are pushing out Behike's now. A large dealer has posted elsewhere that he has been offered cases of Behike's. This is beyond the scope of most producers of fakes. I'd be very careful buying these things.

    Hopefully this won't be viewed as polluting the thread. If they are, I will remove these icky yucky pictures pronto.









    Natually we're talking about the one with the big...uhhh...stone in her necklace.
    Not 100% sure about the first girl (she of the long dark hair) but I suspect real. Sadly, that angle she's leaning in at makes hard to be completely sure.

    Those two above.........real and real.......no doubt no question!

    Those BHK's, impossible to tell from the teeny tiny picture. I'd say use the info craig's post (damn nice of them to fix that up) to check.

    I have two boxes. Seals etc are on the cardboard. The box is also in a very fitted velvet black back. The box itself has a plastic cling(like new cell phones) protecting the black laquer paint job. The inner portion of the hinges has cohiba stamped on them.

    Also the labels will have lots of holographic craziness in it too.

    I will try to find my pics.


    Oh and the jugs....nom nom nom....lol
