  1. Gotta be careful with distinguishing between plume/mold. It's hard to tell from the pictures what you've got there, but I've seen brown substance on some cigars that we're in a overly moist environment. It looks entirely different than your average white or green mold and IME it ruins the appearance and texture of the wrapper if left unchecked. Almost as if it is decomposing it, leaving it rough to the touch. I've never had actual plume act this way and I have never seen or heard of Plume damaging a wrapper. Im not saying that is what the example above has, but it looks like it might be from the pictures.
  2. While not Cuban, I have some Opus X cigars from early 2000,s that absolutely have Plume on them..,not mold. I would be happy to send one or two of them if you like Rob.
  3. Well just remember there are always two sides to every coin and just because there is a well done video produced by activists, it doesn't necessarily make it accurate.
  4. Since I'm 0-2 I decided I'm going to go with my first instinct on this one. Upon taking my first puff I "knew" exactly what this that I'm half way through I'm beginning to doubt myself.
  5. I have found the above to be very true. For whatever reason, it seems the current productions don't need nearly as much down time as they once did, with a few exceptions. I vote 1-3 years as a good general rule
  6. Same here. Just so happened to coincide with when I got a new phone, so I've been tirelessly trying find the reason. It eases my mind to know I'm not the only one.
  7. All the above responses have me wondering if it's a wood mite...hmmm
  8. The smoking experience is night and day difference for me with some fresh lemon squeezed in water.
  9. I don't have a whole lot of experience with SLR as a whole, but a Serie A with some age if pretty hard to beat. I have recently been smoking through a box from '09 and they are fantastic. However, I didn't care too much for them when they were young.
  10. I prefer wood matches, but as others have stated, they can be a challenge if the weather doesn't cooperate. When I use a lighter, I use a butane soft flame.
  11. I'm definitely in too as long as they're not already all spoker for.
  12. I've got some company coming over tonight for dinner. If they don't stay too long, I'll make my way to the lounge. How late do you plan on being there?
