What has been your experience with moldy cigars?

jfields introduced me to this thread when I mentioned a funky smell in my coolidors. Just to clarify, are you adding two ounces of the 10 or 20 PPM solution to a gallon of water?

I’ve been buying and using the 20ppm version Jeff. Sometimes I put a little more than two ounces per gallon.

Seems like some amazing stuff. A couple teaspoons orally seems to have incredible health benefits and a couple ounces in a gallon of distilled water can work wonders in my coolidor. I think I'll have a beer☺

Me too John....err on the side of a little too much than not enough. When it comes to my coolers, I air them out when I do my humidification routine once a month by leaving to lids open for an hour or two. Same thing with my Aristocrat...a little fresh air does our cigars good.

I don't see much of anything on those cigars. Maybe it's just the tooth of the wrapper leaf you're seeing? I don't really see any mold and I would think plume would be hard to photograph while the cigar is still in the cellophane.

Hey guys i ordered a 5 pack of tabernacle cigars from cigar place and can't figure out if its plume or mold even there is a thing called plume would love to hear your opinions
Hard to tell from your pics just what it is...maybe slipping them out of the cello will help. But know this, plume is a unicorn...very few, if any...have ever seen it. If there are white dots on your cigars, it's mold. Just wipe them down and smoke them. If you're going to rest them for a while, separate them from the rest of your stock as a precautionary measure.

Happy smoking...those are some nice cigars!

I agree with black cloud. Mold is definitely noticeable from a foot away. Close up pics may relate to many different things that the elders here could relate to. Mold you will definitely notice tho. I think you’re good just watch for larger white spots = mold
