Howdy, folks. Long time, no see. This smoke has been in my humidor for almost 10 years, now. I wanted to get a 2nd opinion on this to determine if what I'm looking at is plume, mold or a combination. If mold, should I toss it, or is it still smokable?

Thanks in advance!

Mold, mold, and more mold.

I'd toss it.

Efflorescence is my thoughts.

Page 2 of the link below will tell you how to tell if it's mold or minerals.

1000% mold. Try gently wiping it off with your fingers (wash them afterwards) and if it comes off, you should be able to resurrect it. Otherwise, toss it in the round file for an eternity of additional aging.

Fair enough, fellas. Thanks.

So, same question, different sticks.

Same answer - mold.
But worth wiping off and smoking.

Agreed. Those are an easy fix; the first stick, not so much.

Agree with the others. First stick, toss. The other two you can salvage.

Actually, I gave a shot at wiping her down, and she cleaned up kinda nice. Still a tosser, or is it smokable?

If there is mold in the foot, I believe that makes it.. much like a jerky english guy .. a tosser.

Smokable. You cleaned up the minerals coming out of the wrappper. Should be a tasty cigar.

:tpd:

Given the amount of mold on the wrapper, I'd still toss it.
