I spied one today at the B&M for about a hundred bucks...came home and looked them up online and found that it isn't really a misprint.  

So it has some magical Cameroon wrapper from the 90s on it aged between virgin thighs or somerhing...got it.  

My real questions are whether anyone here has smoked one (I'm sure yes), whether it was worth it, and wouldn't 25+ year old tobacco be past it's it's  by now, even if stored correctly?

    I have some.
    They are going for about $65-80 online.
    To be honest, they become a bit one dimensional and while they are worth smoking, if you aren't getting them to collect or have for rare occasions or they are on your unicorn list, probably not worth the cost.

    Realistically, the Royal Danish Swarovski is a much better purchase.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Thanks Tony! Very insightful. Were they really that good back in their prime?

    They were fantastic. 
    At the time they were released , they were about $15 each. 
    Over time, they became harder to find and considerably more money.
    Now, they are extremely difficult to find.

    A while ago, I was lucky to get a couple on the evil bid site for $25 each.
    I have no idea why they had them, but I took the opportunity to purchase them.

    I smoked a few. They were great but I didn't pay anywhere close to $100...
