Likewise, our philosophy consists in offering our customers our best prices unlike other competitors who charge excessive amounts and take advantage of the difficulty of finding authentic Cuban cigars in the Off-line market.
Where do you get your cigars?
Our cigars are obtained from Habanos S.A. or their authorized wholesalers. Habanos S.A. is the sole distributor of genuine Cuban Cigars. We have experience in the cigar business and stand behind our product with a 100% guarantee of authenticity. We demand from our supplier the absolute best cigars and do not hesitate to return cigars to the distributor if we feel they are not of the very best standard.

In the first place because CIGoutlet.net only markets Cuban Cigars and in the second place because our refund policy ensures that you will get your money back immediately if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase. Completely guaranteed; you only have to send us back the original box.
How do I know the cigars you sell are authentic?
Since the beginning of the US Cuban trade embargo, there has always been a black market economy in fake Cuban Cigars. Most of these fakes are of very poor quality and are easy to spot. Recently, there have been a flood of hard to spot fake Cubans coming on the market through unauthorized retailers sometimes even producing them without license in Cuba. We take this threat very seriously, and protect the quality and authenticity of our products by only buying through Habanos S.A., the original producer and manufacturer of all Cuban Cigars. When purchasing we only buy in whole unopened boxes, cases and master cases. We guarantee and stand by the fact that all of the products we sell are 100% authentic.

Will my order arrive in optimum conditions?
Our greatest worry is for our customers to be completely satisfied with their purchase. Our cigars are perfectly stored and conserved in our industrial caves at a temperature of 10? centigrade [50? Fahrenheit] and a 68% humidity. We handle them carefully and package them ingeniously, by vacuum sealing the boxes, which enables the cigars to maintain the freshness of a recently handcrafted cigar.
How should I store my cigars?
If you do not have a humidor we suggest you buy one. It is very important to store your cigars in a way which will prevent them from dying out. A humidor is specially designed to keep cigars fresh enough to be a great smoke but not humid enough that they begin to mold or degrade. One can store them without a humidor, but they will dry out quickly and can not be dehydrated. It is commonly understood that a cigar that has dried out is not as good as a fresh one.
