If you ask the staff, there is a humidor in the back room where they will get you a fresh box. I bought a 3 pack of RyJ tubos no1 for $56 en route to NY, which for Canadian standards is not so bad! And the cigars were good. if I remember correctly, a box of Cohiba Siglo iv was priced at $500.
Uncanny. I had this exact experience as well last night. I am looking to buy another. I want to like this cigar, the wrapper is a beautiful shade and the puffs that I took tasted great. Constantly having to correct the burn on one side due to the bunching was frustrating as heck though.
