@ShawnOL This would not be due to a stick being considered budget vs premium (for example), it's mostly likely due to the time it's spent in the humidor in conjunction with where it is in the humidor. With that being said I'd have to check bin location because there are thousands of SKUs and I'm not insane enough to memorize them. Did you contact Customer Service?
@ShawnOL Glad to hear it all worked out, although I'm sorry you had received moldy smokes in the first place. Trust me, the damaged goods don't go on sale or anything. They will be removed from inventory.
