I was taking the cigars my parents brought from Cuba out of their tubes to put in my humidor and I noticed on one of the H.Upmanns there was a little spot on the wrapper. It was a light colored spot. It almost looked like a tree when it loses some of its bark. What is this?

Second, almost all of the bands on the H.Upmanns are a little loose. Should I be worried about them being fake or is that due to the fact that they are over four years old?

Ric, If I remember correctly the Upmanns are 98s. Poker's right (DUH), but sticks shrink a little as they get older. Even if after they've been in your box for a while and the bands are still loose, that doesn't necessarily mean they're fakes. HOW DO THEY TASTE? That's the main thing.

I chose not to do my Post Doctoral Fellowship on cigar fungus because they tend to be statistically rare. It is in all probability a bacterial infestation which is far worse. If you send a stick, I will be more than willing to test it for the bacterium moochahyourupmann.
