I was gifted these cigars by an older woman who has since passed and would love information regarding the history and possibly age of the box/cigars. Completely lost as I do not enjoy cigars but I definitely admire the craft and work that went into them. TIA

    Aw man thats too bad, those ones cause Herpes. You should throw them out or burn them

    Cigars were made to be smoked, whiskey was made to be drank and women were made to be loved. The only thing I try to age is myself.

    Never heard of them, but I googled it. Click on the links. Pretty interesting.

    @GAR28 How have you been storing these? Stashed in your sock drawer or in a humidor with well regulated humidity?

    @Bob_Luken on a bookshelf with my books.

    @GAR28 For how long?

    I'm no expert but, these cigars are very interesting, and if they had been stored properly (generally 70 degrees Fahrenheit at 70% relative humidity), since the time they were manufactured, they could be quite valuable. As they are probably dried out and most likely will not be worth smoking, they may still have a much lesser value as a collectible item.

    Never heard of a canary islands cigar. Interesting. $10k for one cigar? I'll buy a whole box!

    Smoke one! What’s the humidity in your house 60’s, 70’s might get lucky and still be good.
    If you quote me do the @TX98Z28 in your text or I won't be notified of your quote, Thanks.

    The picture you see on my profile is the winning auction to some hoya epicure no 2 that were in the worst condition I have ever seen in my entire life. The auction was for a sealed box, and it was for charity, but the next picture I have is me throwing these cigars away. If you have a buddy that knows cigars, you get them to take a look closely at the cigars... just to make sure you don’t have a box of moldy prunes...
