Alot of my followers have been asking me if they should keep there cigars in there cellophane or remove it when storing there cigars. I do not have the answer because this debate has been the one where both sides are right. There are pros and cons for each method but I have a system I believe might work for you and make everyone happy lol. Some of the cons of leaving the cellophane on the cigar are; the aging process is 60% slower. Another con is over time as the cigar ages you will notice the cellophane changing color from the oils released from the cigar making the cellophane clogged and unable to breathe creating a micro climate in which mold can grow easier. Now some of the cons of taking the cellophane off. If you have your cigars touching one and other and they are different blends or brands, these two cigars will trade oils creating a taste and aroma not meant for either blend or make. Also, once you take the cellophane off, your exposing the fragile wrapper to easily become torn if you are not careful. There are more cons for each method but these are just examples. My method is as follows, since I review a ton of cigars, I generally won’t have them aging long enough to make it an “aged cigar” , so I will leave the cellophane on. However, some of my favorites such as the “Casa Magna Colorado” , I keep unwrapped to properly age and I keep them separate in there own special corner of my humidor so there is no chance to cross flavors with any other cigars. At the end of the day no one is right or wrong, it all comes down to personal preference and the only thing that really matters is that when you sit down and enjoy your cigar, you are happy. Stay toasting!
