furry wrapper

Okay, its not mold, its not plume, it's not a sun spot, and it doesn't look like tooth. At least I don't think its any of those things. I am at work so I can't show you a picture, but the wrapper looks like it has little sparkly hairs on it. They don't appear to rub off. The cigar was in a tubo with a cedar wrap. Anyone got any guesses?

  • hmmmm perhaps. It doesn't look that dense though. It doesn't smell funny either

    I feel like this is just the way the wrapper is... btw... it prolly got goosebumps anticipating you smoking him! In all seriousness though - it looks normal...
  • its not my imagination though right? You do see the little hairs on it

    Yeah! They are there... Is it an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper? Or Cameroon?
  • its actually that montecristo platinum we talked about earlier. Got it from a B&M so I don't know what the wrapper is, but I would guess Sumatra. Def not cameroon

    Cound not find a close up of a tobacco pant, the hair you see there and the tomato plant(leaf and stem) are present as well on the tobacco plant. all though its life cycle . I see these hairs on many of my cigars.
    Some biology
    "Sometimes plants use hairs and spines for reasons other than making life difficult for animals. By providing greater surface area, or by creating a sunlight- or wind-deflecting blanket, thick mats of hairs or spines can actually help a plant control its temperature. Similarly, a carpet of fuzz on a leaf's underside can reduce a plant's water loss through evaporation."

    Lassy, where the heck are you? I expected a really clever off color answer to this, especially concerning little tiny hairs. Don't disappoint us!

    They are short, but not curly, so your Cigar has just hit puberty...

    And judging by your hairs being douched in glitter I'd say that Liberace skipped Puberty and channeled it into your cigar... That's right, you have a prepubescent Liberace ****...... (in a tube)

    How's that?????

    I knew you would come through for us! I've said this before, but I don't know who makes me laugh more, you or Kuzi.

    Keep it up. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't say that to you...

    just give it a good shave...
  • I checked my Monte btw and the wrapper was also furry... Not as much as yours but it was... So it def IS normal...
  • Is that cigar aged about 12-15 years? If so, its not unsual to start seeing hair in new places...
