Smelly cigars. Sick period or something else?
I was recently gifted a handful of cigars, and they smell... pungent. Very pungent. Very similar to a dirty hampster cage, so yes theres a slight ammonia smell. They dont look too new, so I'm thinking the so called Sick Period cant be in play here. Or can it? I put them in my small humidor and the smell spread to my cigars in there... I'm hoping it wont affect the taste. I took them all out and am letting them air out. Will probably zip lock bag them to keep the smell away from the others. Has anyone experienced this? And what can I do to rid smell?
