If it makes you feel better, there's a Cohiba each year, in most of the years prior to 2015. Cigar Aficionado - Low Membership Price! But my point is this: when I'm in the Caribbean, I not only expect to be able to buy local, but to get local for less than in New England. It's true for rum, but not cigars. Having to pay $25 - $40 for a mediocre Cuban cigar, when I'm right near Honduras, Nicaragua, or Dominican Republic, is nuts. Back home, I can get a top cigar for $15, although I rarely do so.
