I'm very pleased with the Cohiba and I for the price i'd expect a top tier cigar. My only grip is two of my cigars were dryed out, and it just so happpened those were the two i brought to a wedding and gave one as a gift (a little embarrising). I have a mature humidor with a variety of cigars and no other cigars were dryed out so im pretty sure I might have recieved a couple of older ones. Too bad theers no way to tell. other than that if you recieve a good one, theer worth every penny.
