OK. I had some "Cohibas" on a Mexican resort that I can now say were fake. They were not vile rolled up turds, rather some OK facsimile.
I was still experimenting with cigars at this point and didn't know better.
On my way back I picked up a 5 count pack of Cohiba Lanceros. The smell and taste of these were far beyond my "Fauxhiba" experience.
The Lanceros are one of my favourite cigars ever.
