I recently purchased a box of cigars and they smell like the crawlspace under my house (for real , just like that). They were a brazialian wrapper which I know is fermented but I am not sure if the smell is normal or if it is an underlying affect of perhaps mold inside of the cigars. There is no visible mold on them. The box they came in did not smell and I really only noticed the smell when I removed the cellophane from a couple. I have them segragated from others in a small humidor just in case. Has anyone else ever had this happen and are they trashed or what. I am a longtime cigar smoker but recently fell in love with brazilian wrapper (CAO Brazilia, my FAV). Not sure if some cheaper labels are similar to this.
Thanks for any feedback. Ted
