Everything's been covered except for one other issue. I'm a serious cigar smoker and collector and as far as marcas go, Cohiba is the most expensive. Are they worth it? No if you smoke them young. This is a cigar that needs serious age, at least 3 years and 5 or more is better. So when you go to buy, look at the bottom and you will find a date code in spanish with a 3-letter month and 2-digit year. The other code is the factory code and not as important as it once was. If you find a box of Cohibas with only letters then you have something very old, pre-2000. snap it up. Also a better reason to shop in Havana since they will have more stock and you may have a chance of finding a box that's been around for awhile.

So with good age, the answer is YES they are worth it. And whatever you hear, only buy from LCdH's with the exception being the shop in El Morro. Cueto helps manage it and he's sometmes there (his wax figure is always there lol). A great guy too. One of the best cigars I've ever had, right alongside a 1492, was a custom cigar Cueto made for me last March.
