Took delivery of the Behike sampler from FOH in February 2011. This 54 has been with me since. It’s the only cigar I have that’s older than 4 years and will be by far the oldest cigar I’ve ever smoked. The 52 I smoked early on was perfect. The 56 a few years later was forgettable.

I think tonight is the night for the 54. As the kids say, YOLO. As the old timers say, smoke em if you got em.

My question is what would this thing be worth today?

Considering it’s a single idk what the market for it would be if any

Not trying to be negative …that was my first thought ….I think it’s wonderful that you saved it for that long and I hope it’s a cracker …report back !

Judging by the constant Behike chatter on other forums, I’m guessing there’s most definitely a market for this. And FWIW, the lone BHK54 I smoked about 4 years ago remains the finest tasting cigar I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing.

Current boxes are sparse and easily fetching up to $1500, so I’m guessing with yours, being nearly an original release stick, some fool out there (I include myself in this category occasionally) would pay upwards of $200.

You should enjoy the hell out of that fine specimen.

Well I guess my logic is if you have the kind of mentality and budget to spend $200+ on one cigar, you would probably just want a box of 10 instead …but you could certainly be right in that I’m sure plenty of ppl would ….I don’t know man I just simply thought that….could be totally wrong

what something cost and what it performs like are two different things. I have smoked $5 dollar cigars better than big money cigars. I don't get sucked into mystique in cigars regardless of the age or the brand. Good luck people smoking $200 or more dollar cigars and believing they are worth their price and if that's the case I question what people have smoked in the past to justify the prices,

We’re not really talking about what something costs though, but rather what it’s worth to someone - which are also two entirely different things, the latter being profoundly subjective.

Or, there goes your career as a Mohel. 
 

At any rate, hope you enjoyed it!

What?! I must have missed some forum discussions. As long as the thing doesn’t unravel, what’s the problem?

Well she’s gone. Paired with a bottle of Frank Family Cab. All around a classy smoke. Extraordinarily smooth and refined. The flavors just aren’t there for what some people would pay for it. Started out full bodied, and quickly moved to medium through the finish. Exclusively luxurious Cuban tobacco flavor and smooth cedar through its entirety. This cigar reminds me of a tuxedo. Very refined, but not the kaleidoscopic of flavor you would expect from the “price point”. It would be a good choice for a formal event where you want something luxurious that won’t demand much of your attention. In the end, I’d take a 1 year old 52 over an 11 year old 54 any day. To answer the original question, I’d price this at $75.

Love Franks Family Vineyard Cabernet - bought 5 cases many years ago.  Still have 2 bottles of 2002 that are a little past prime but still drinks well.

Excellent bottle of wine.
