    Question to the board

    I am not sure there is a major retailer in the world who checks to see if there is a box code on every single box. I doubt this is going to start tomorrow either

    Cohiba! I don't get it...

    Some people detest Bolivar. Some hate Partagas Hoyo are flavourless to many. Much of this depends on how your palate physiology is wired. Everyone is unique. You may never "get" Cohiba and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Question to the board

    OK thanks for your input Interesting indeed. From the perspective of HSA, box codes have always been an internal management tool. They do not represent a consumer aspect of packaging. No code = no fail. Verification can be undertaken utilising the serial number and the verification API at http://www.habanos.com/en/verificacion-de-autenticidad/ I would hazard a guess that the extent of boxes with no box date is 1 in 100. That makes a lot of boxes out there When they are struggling to put bands on boxes of Bolivar Petit Corona.....I think it is a fairly good result
  13. Question to the board Does a box without a box code constitute a faulty product in your eyes? Use the poll for me and feel free to detail your thoughts. I haven't had a complaint as yet but boxes without codes are not rare. Most people accept them without a second thought. However in the world of flipping, it may make a difference. It is not something that we check every box for. Is the box code more than an internal reference point?
