After hearing about the upcoming release several months ago, the Cohiba "Behike" cigars have finally hit the market. They were named after the cheif of one of Cuba's indigenous tribes and are said to be the most expensive cigars in the world. Only 4,000 were rolled, all to be sold in groups of 40 in specially designed humidors for $18,860 - which comes out to about $470 per cigar. Every one of the cigars was hand-rolled by Norma Fernandez, the cigar roller at the El Laguito factory in Havana.A bit of trivia: no one knows how they taste. Aside from the few who approved the original tobacco blend designed by Norma and used in the cigars, no one has smoked one of the completed cigars yet.
