When you receive a new box of cigars (Habanos) look at the date on the bottom of the box. As a rule of thumb, aged cigars smoke much better than non-aged. That's why Cohiba Limitadas are aged for 2 years prior to release. In many cases your new box may only be 6 months old. Smoke 1 or 2 knowing they will be better after a year or two of aging.
One box of Monte #2s has been in my humidor for over 5 years. When I got them they were harsh, which is why I still have them. Now they are mind blowing, complex, elegant, smooth. I can't come up with enough adjectives to describe them.

A great cigar is a great memory!

I usually let my cigars rest in the humidor for a few weeks before I start smoking them. You should have a hell of a patience to wait 5 years.

Well, some cigars really need long aging to show their potential but the others are ready to smoke immediately, so this rule doesn't apply to every one of them.

if you just want to think, there's nothing better than taking a good cigar

As far as I know, the majority is aged before being released for sale but there's no better aging than aging them in your own humidor.
