    Default Cedar Wrapped Cigars?

    Gents,

    I've reached into my humidor this afternoon and decided on a 1 year aged hemingway Classic, and to my surprise after i removed the cedar wrapped I found mold in this cigar. All other cigars are clean, and had me wonder if I should remove the cedar wrapped on all of the anejo's that i am currently aging.

    Thoughts? and suggestions are welcomed.

    Positive it's mold?

    Regardless if it is or isn't, I'm thinking it has nothing to do with the cedar wrap. Mold is a product of excess moisture combined with temperature and cedar actually absorbs moisture. My inkling is keep the cedar wraps on. I don't know how many cigars you have that are cedar wrapped, but I would maybe pick a couple and check them out as a sample size. If they are all fine, I say throw the one away and move on.

    Just some suggestions...good luck!

    I'm with Jim. I have let cigars age with the cedar wrapping still on them before and never had an issue. Mold is a result of a temperature/humidity problem. Are you sure that it is mold and not simply some bloom?

    The rest are all fine just the one Hemingway that was cedar wrapped and cello... Glad I found it sooner then later no other cigars have any signs.. Cigar was gifted from my brother so ill slap him on the back of his head tomorrow.

    Cigar 101

    Here's an article on how to distinguish between the two. I hope it's not mold if it is I'd check all the others like Jim said.

    Couldn't be the cedar. Most of mine are aged in cedar and a handful that I haven't got around to smoking for about 2 years are still fine.
