    To Wrap or Unwrap

    First let me say thanks to you bro & sis gorillas for helping a newbie in less than three weeks i have a new 150 count glass top humi up and running beautifully with no hangups thanks to your suggestions!
    Please as a newbie gorilla i would like your opinions on leaving the wrap or cellophane on cigars i place in my humidor. Will say here in south fla. the temps been high around 76 degrees maybe 78 in the afternoon with the ac on but i have been at a comfy 70 per humidity. Do you apes leave your sticks wrapped or do you remove them when you put them in your humidor?

    thanks
    bandit
    have really enjoyed all your ideas!!!!!!!!!!
    ps does the cellophane help at all with cigar beetles!

    I unwrap mine, many people prefer not to.

    One thing you shouldn't do is mix wrapped and unwrapped cigars in a humidor or in a baggie when shipping them. The cellophane will damage the naked sticks' wrappers.

    And no, I am told that a cellophane wrapper will not deter a beetle. They chew right through them.

    I always leave them wrapped until they make it to the top tray of my desktop humidor. From everything I have seen it is more of a personal choice or preference.

    You will certainly get many varying opinions on this topic. Personally, I like to remove the cello, as I believe the cigars will benefit from aging faster than with the cello left on. It's common knowledge that cigars that come in alumminum tubes, if left in the tubes, will take much longer to age properly, than if the tubes are removed. Although cello is different than alumminum tubes, the principle is the same.

    I leave mine on. More personal preference than any other thing. Be warned, though, that if you leave them wrapped, humidification takes longer, so you will need to let those rest longer.

    And, I have actually had a beetle stopped inside of a cello, so I guess there might be some small chance they won't always chew thru! Less chance of damage in moving the cigars around. If I stick a cigar in my shirt pocket for a smoke later, it doesn't dry out as fast, and doesn't get foot damage from rubbing against other items that might be in my pockets.

    OTOH, those gorillas that unwrap theirs can give you just as many valid reasons that they prefer theirs naked!!

    Nothing like a nice yellow wrapper to show some age on that cigar....the oils leach out and get on the celli.

    Try storing a few of the same smokes with cellophane and a few without, then smoke em. Whichever you like best should be the way you go. The great thing about cigars is that experiments with them usually involves smoking them.

    Re: To Wrap or Unwrap

    MY 2 cents is that I think they age a bit better w/o wrappers but get so beat up that I leave them on. Unless of course you have a box which generally protects them enough that its wrapper off.

    Re: To Wrap or Unwrap

    I use to unwrap because of how it looked. But i have a few sticks damaged so if they come with cello, i keep it on.

    Completely up to you what you do.

    I always unwrap mine i can check them etc, also i find that wrapped will damage unwrapped cigars. I also dont think its attractive IMO.

    Just do what you want, its a free country (well sort of)
