Default Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

I have seen (in my 37 years smoking cigars) plume & mold.

Plume (or bloom) are oils natural to the tobacco, that rise to the surface and crystalize, usually it is spotty (little spots), more like little spots of dust.

Mold is more fuzzy, but can be less so, and usually covers more of a cigar, maybe the whole thing.

Given the picture shown, I am more inclined to say mold. But, without a more magnified picture, and Alstair's comments I am less certain it is mold.

That being said, I'd be suspect of what I see in the pictures as I see it.

Just my $.02.
