Costly Cohibas now in Canada

behikes

Smokers in Canada who have patiently waited to get their hands on the exclusive and highly limited Cohiba Behike can now do so. Be warned, however, that it will likely leave your wallet deflated. Despite their high price, however, demand seems to be quite high, meaning you will have to act fast if you hope to purchase one of Cohiba's finest. Considering that the Behike was made available towards the end of July, the possibility that their supply is running out is a high one.

The Behike line comes in three different sizes, each named after its ring gauge: the 4.7 x 52 BHK 52, the 5.7 x 54 BHK 54, and the 6.5 x 56 BHK 56. On average, Canadian prices for each size, when converted into U.S. dollars are as follows: $73 for a BHK 52, $93 for a BHK 54, and $110 for a BHK 56. Keep in mind, those are prices per single, not per pack. If you are considering buying a package of 10, you are looking at figures that hover around $1,000. That's far from chump change, and probably knocks the Behike out of many smokers' budgetary ballparks.

As a comparison, Behikes have been sold in countries such as Switzerland and Mexico for less than half the Canadian cost. What's the reason for the extreme prices north of the border? You can thank Canadian taxes for that. Either way, the high prices do not seem to be stopping sales or demand much, so Behike suitors do not have much time to grumble if they want to light one up.

Higher tobacco taxes backfire on the state of Utah

As discussed on Puff.com last month, the state of Utah instituted a major tax hike on tobacco products. The new tax rate kicked in on July 1, and it jumped to 86 percent of the wholesale price on other tobacco products from its previous rate of 35 percent. In addition, the state increased the tax on a pack of cigarettes by a dollar from 70 cents to $1.70. The higher taxes were instituted to aid an ailing state budget in need of a $40 million band-aid, as well as to address the health concerns of many.
