A forum for cigar lovers.
Ladies and Gents~
I've recently entered into the wonderful world of cigars, and I'm certainly enjoying my newfound hobby. In perusing the blogs and forums, I must say that a newbie will feel very welcomed by the surrounding people. I've read most, if not all, of the posts and responses, and all questions are entertained with sincerity and respect, whether obvious or elementary.
With that, I must ask my question: do you "professionals" leave the wrappers on the cigars when you put them in your humidors?
I've read the answers from "Yes, the plastic will breath so it's ok," to the "No, they are only used for shipping and should be removed."
So which is it? I'm sure there are personal preferences, but is there an overwhelming preference either way?
Thanks in advance!
i keep all the cellophane on. I know it ages a bit slower but, i rummage through my stash often and i like the added protection.
its about personal taste
Personally, I leave my wrappers on. I tend to travel quite a bit and take various smokes with me when I go. So I like having the wrappers on to help protect my sticks.
However that being said, I do think that the sticks look better in the humidor without their wrappers.
Great article, Alex. And thanks to all giving their respective input. I believe I will take everyone's advice; I left one tray for unwrapped sticks, and the rest will remain wrapped. We'll see which ones taste best at the "smoking hour."
