HI there all

Just a question When you get new cigars that are in plastic wrappers do you take them out before you put them in the humidor??

    Now, cellophane wrappers are a different story. If left on, they’ll add a layer of protection to your sticks so they don’t get messed up by handling, etc. 
    sorry that’s what I meant cellophane

    And, the cellophane is permeable so you don’t have to worry about your sticks drying out. The RH can still get to them. 

    As as far as I know, Cubans come with no cello. I don’t know why that is. Any of you other guys able to help me out on that point?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Agree with the fellas above 100%. On that note (and I'll try not to hijack the thread), what say you all about shrink wrap on cigar boxes? I mean, they must sit in the factories/warehouses like that so no problem, right? What about tins? Got a few FFOX 3pk rare estate double Robustos and they're still shrink wrapped in the tins. Will they be okay like that long term?

    Some say that the shrink wrap hastens the aging of cigars, probably because the tobacco gas has nowhere to go.  They also say that the shrink wrap is like the cello on cigars in that it can breathe somewhat so it doesn't hurt to leave it on.

    Too many hands involved in the supply chain, best take a look.
