I do not envy the job of the appraiser.

I didn't call him out. I just told him my concerns. Also, I don't accept the argument that he was unaware they were counterfeits. He spends tens of thousands of dollars on cigars per year. He knows the difference, which makes me believe that he knew they were fake. He tried to use them to gain favor with me. I'm looking at this from a different perspective than you all are. It's a matter of principle. He walked around the office and told everyone to look at my $600 box on my desk and how great a client he is and other non-sense. I guess bought into his bull also.

I appreciate your advice.

Is it not a little arrogant to think he wants to gain favor with you. Sounds like he just wanted you to feel like a big deal for a little while. Unfortunately style forum has a way of making you second guess that sort of stuff on a regular occasion. We're lucky enough to have an expert in nearly every topic and the anonymity of the internet allows them to voice their true opinion (for good or bad).

This.

On top of that, you really bothered him on a Saturday night to tell him you think the gift he gave you was fake? crackup[1].giffacepalm.gif

I don't understand where you are coming from. You are trying to get a job with this fellow, right? Who cares if he gives you fakes? The operative word is gives, its not like it costs you anything to get them.

Also, have you considered that maybe he thinks these cigars are real? Everyone wants to believe that they know "a guy" who hooks them up and when they find one they tend to believe them.

Not exactly a cigar, but a simple (but large) Butz Chacom with Cavendish Virginia and Burley tobacco, no other "treatments".
