  1. Hey sorry about the delay, didn't see that you'd posted this reply. I've smoked 2 of them now. One last weekend, and the other mid-August. Overall, I'm coming to the conclusion that they're definitely real Cubans, and probably real Behike's, all things considered. I've never had another Behike, so I can't say with 100% confidence based on smoking one. In my eyes, the signs point to them being real. It was a sealed box, the box code checked out and matches the production date. The bands look fine, except that there is no UV reactive element to them. From what I've found online, earlier in that
  2. Great well this makes me feel a lot better. I think I might smoke one this weekend and see what happens. Thanks for your help!
  3. Cool so you're saying you were able to look up that serial number and see which month/year it was used at Cohiba? Is that a tool that's available to everyone?
  4. Thanks, yeah I will likely just smoke one in a few weeks once they've settled. They do smell a lot like my CoRos, so we'll see.
  5. Hey all, Newbie checking in from Kalamazoo, MI. I'm 33, recently married, and have recently taken this up as my summer lockdown hobby. Per the great recommendations I've seen on Reddit, I've got myself a box of Cohiba Robustos, Partagas SD4, Montecristo No 2, and Behike 52's. I have 2 more orders en route, including some Trinidad Reyes, RyJ Cazadores, and Monte Edmundos. I'm doing a tupperdor system using 9.6 cup Rubbermaid Brilliance containers, 65% Boveda packs, and 1 SensorPush Bluetooth monitor. My intent is to age most of these for years, and occasionally pick one off. The past coupl
  6. I appreciate the feedback. If it sounds like I'm crazy, that's just the culmination of me being very new to fine cigars (this was my 2nd box), and being a bit OCD. I do tend to go down rabbit holes and definitely did with this, exploring every possible thing to look for, and what people have said in past authenticity discussions. The one thing I will challenge you on though... I paid $800 for this box, which I assumed was not a bargain basement price as you put it, not to mention these aren't commonly available to buy. I don't see any for sale on FOH, and also hadn't heard that FOH was superio
  7. Sorry about that, it's fixed. I will check the rules and make an introduction post soon. Just wanted to get this cleared up and out of my mind first!
  8. Serial# is 000023860022 I'll work on getting some better pictures. Anything you want to see in particular?
  9. Hey all, Just joined the forum, as I see there are some experts here, and I'm hoping that some of you can help me decide what to do with this box of BHK 52's I received last Monday. Here is the link to the photo album. Below is my thought process and things I checked and took into account, but I would really appreciate any extra insight you may have. The box is from a reputable online vendor, and it was sealed when I received it. I know they are a legitimate seller and claim to buy all merchandise from authorized distributors. Someone attempted to remove all serial markings, eve
