Sorry to burst your bubble, but I'm 99% sure that the Cohiba is a fake. It's tough to be 1000% sure from that picture, but from what I can see it doesn't look right. There are no current production Cubans sold in glass tubes, and even if it had been put into the tube later it still looks fishy. I just don't want to to have high hopes for that cigar, and then have it disappoint you. The market is flooded with fake Cubans, and it's likely that someone brought the gentlmen back this as gift from a Caribbean vacation without knowing what they were buying.
As long as the foam looks clean it should be fine. Season the humidor first, and then put the cigars back in and you'll want to bring the humidity up slowly. If you bring them up too quick you can crack the wrappers.
Edit: Sorry, I didn't see the full gallery before I posted. With the other pictures I'm calling it a fake. Sorry.
