Clear plastic wrap is essential for Canada but not all exported Cuban boxes will have this since it is not mandatory for other countries.
Tobacco in Canada must have a cellophane wrap on the outside of the box but it is one of the only countries with this standard. For exporters to cover every box in cellophane would be an added cost for no reason and would take extra time to send to countries where it is not mandatory.
Cigar Chief is a First Nations company located on First Nations land. This means we are able to source cigars outside of Canada. With the current pandemic situation combined with plain packaging regulations on tobacco in Canada it has become nearly impossible to secure adequate cigar inventory. This has forced us to work with suppliers around the globe.
Your cigars still have our Cigar Chief Guarantees and are guaranteed authentic regardless or having clear plastic wrap or not.
