Why you shouldn't store sealed boxes.

0patience0patience Posts: 10,665 ✭✭✭✭✭
Let me preface this by saying, no, these were NOT bought at Ccom.
A while back, there was a discussion about whether someone should open up boxes when they get them or keep them sealed.

THIS is why you shouldn't throw sealed boxes in your humidor.
Had I thrown this box in my humidor without opening it, I'd have probably put my entire tower at risk of mold.

    And by the way, if any vendor (starts with an H) tries to tell you this is plume, probably want to walk away. 
    It isn't as aggravating to have it happen, as it is for these places to be telling folks it is plume.

    Looks like plume to me.

    With a little tiny bit of mold. :'(

    I would definitely smoke that one on the right upside down.  Wouldn't wanna put that plume in your mouth!

    I always inspect for damage during shipping anyway.

    Wonderful plummage!
    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    That's the good stuff right there, just like a medium rare cooked chicken breast delicious 😂

    I'm still trying to figure out why you shouldn't steal store boxes.  That's what I see when I see the title of this thread.

    More importantly, what you should never do is buy moldy cigars.  Sealed boxes are not the problem.

    Right?
    I think I have that problem solved. 
    That vendor is struck from my list.

    You mean we have the option to buy moldy or non-moldy cigars ?

    Yeah, buy from the wrong place and then have them tell you it is plume.
