    Ok Im sure this has been posted somewhere before but I'm on my phone and the search function isn't working for me. Anyway I received some cigars as a gift and a few had mold on them. Not bad but still mold. Anyway I've heard it's ok to smoke cigars that had mold on them and just wipe them off...

    :banghead: So, i recently switched over to kitty litter.. and i guess the little tray i had it in was a little too high. It was, in theory, not humidifying the bottom tray of my 3 drawer humi and spreading upwards from there, but in fact only going directly up to my little stack of cubans. The...

    Last night I went to grab a smoke from my Humidor full of Fuentes and I pulled out a Chateau Fuente Maduro Rothschild. When I sat down to light it up, as I removed the cedar sleeve, I saw the spots! There were not many, just a few under where the sleeve was, so I wiped it off with a paper...

    A few of you either have or will be receiving an '09 Camacho Liberty from me. I discovered today, thanks to MrMayorga, that have mold on them. I went through the remainder of that box and found mold on every stick. I wiped them all off and now have them drying. I also went through the other box...

    My order of a box of Partegas Mille Fleurs arrived yesterday. After opening, mold was apparent on at least 3 of the top layer of sticks. Check out the fuzziness on the cigar that is diagonal to the others. Very disappointed. I emailed my vendor (whom I have dealt with for a long time, and here...

    I can still taste it. Blech.:puke: From what i saw of the stick, it had some bluish colors at the foot. Once I cut it, and took a draw, I should have quit then and there. But no. I was thinking, hmmm....maybe it'll get better once I start smoking it. With this cigar, which was a H. Uppman...

    I recently came into owning a few cigars- some of them very valuable, some of them very hard to get in this country. A lot of them have tiny blue-green stains on the wrapper and filler leaves. These stains are at most a few millimeters in diameter. Is this mold? Will I get sick smoking these...

    Hi, I opened a couple boxes of Sam Gawith "Sam's Flake" today ... I noticed that there seemed to be small spots of a grayish/silverish streaks on the some parts of the surface of the flakes. Both boxes had it ... but then again, I bought them both at the same time. I like this tobacco ... and...

    Was near a local B&M this afternoon on an unrelated errand and had some time to check it out. I had only been there once before. During my first visit a couple months ago I had noticed a box of RP Edge Light with one cigar left in it. I picked it up to check it out, considering buying it, but...

    I was recently given a couple Sharks by my Secret Santa. With all the posts about mold, I've been checking them for mold weekly. One of them started sprouting white stuff this week :mad: It's not completely coated so I'm going to freeze it for a couple days and smoke it immediately after it...

    I've been using beads in my humis for well over a year and found mold in the bottom of my humi underneath the spot I set the bag of wet beads (I posted this problem earlier today). I have the beads in old panty hose little bags. I spray the bags with distilled water until I see the beads...

    I have a Thompson Humidor that has not been used in awhile since I have two. It now smells of mold and mildew. I have left it outside open to air out however that did nothing. Any suggestions?? I was going to try sanding the liner and replace the humidifers. :confused:

    Purchased a Henry Clay Grande Maduro from the local B&M a few days ago. It came in a aluminum tube wrapped in cedar. This particular B&M keeps the humidity up at around 75% and 70 degrees. I always open and inspect my cigars before storing them, and here is what I found: As you...

    Today, while servicing my Cigar Oasis II, I noticed white mold spots on the foam inside the unit. The RH in the humi never exceeded 66%, and all of the cigars look great. Anyone else ever had the foam start to mold? Is the foam even required for the device to work properly?
