Cigar mold can be the scourge of a cigar collection, and building a Cigar Closet was supposed to protect my sticks from such harmful maladies. Yet here I stand, scratching my head and wondering: why have some of my cigars grown mold? The closet’s RH is rock steady at 70% with the temp. hovering around 70 degrees. By most accounts, this is near perfect cigar conditions. Yet all is not well.
After much thinking and experimentation I have called in a mold inspecter and sent some samples to the lab. After I get the results, and have spoken to the experts, I’ll be making a full report of the events. Hopefully this situation will be resolved soon, and my cigars can, once again, rest undisturbed.
