I am not a pro, but avid enough to know a good smoke. I have kept mine (4 boxes of Davidoffs) in a large, air tight, 'tupperware-esque' style storage box in the basement since the move from nyc almost 18 months ago and they are the same today as they were then. Perhaps the basement humidity is doing the trick, but then they are in an air tight container. Hard to say.
Incidentally, what do you pay for 'everyday' cigars on average?
