Alex Svenson:Can be on any part of the tobacco. Be careful of white and blue though as they are typically mold.
j0z3r:I thought plume/bloom was characterized by a crystallization of the essential oils in the tobacco...no one said it had to be on the wrapper. Though maybe some do make that distinction, I don't cuz I don't much care about plume one way or the other.
Thewelder:I couldn't telly you if they had any color or not since I saw them on the ash. I do have another of the same cigar, so i'll smoke it today and let you know
kuzi16:mamny cigars have speckles on them that arent bloom/plume but other mineral deposits. if they were textured and raised then it probably wasnt plume. if it wasnt, and sparkled in the light then it was. if it was only on the binder then technically speaking, it cannot be bloom. maybe it was about to. Iduno. pics always help in this situation. did you manage to get any?
kuzi16:anyone else ever smoke a cigar with bloom to confirm?
j0z3r:also if I smoke a cigar with a toothy wrapper, the bumps (tooth) will leave differently colored speckles as well.
