Hi guys, i recently joined the forum and have been really enjoying reading over some threads. I received a box today of SC El Principe from EMA ABR 08, from a trusted vendor. Usually everything is in perfect condition. When i opened the box i found little tiny white or transparent bugs on a few of the cigars. Really really tiny. I'm not sure what cigar beetles look like, as i've never experienced any (Thankfully), but there were no holes in any of the wrappers of the cigars, Just these tiny little insects. Maybe 7 or 8 all up. There was a bit of white marks here and there. It seemed as if the box was over humidified, and maybe had mold, and the vendor wiped it down before he shipped it to me, I'm not sure. I'm not sure what to do. 2 of the cigars also have a dry white spot on the cap, I've never had that either. The piece of cedar also had white water marks on it. And the bottom of the box also had what looked like water marks or something. So my question is, what do i do with it. I have a coolidor that is full of other cigar boxes. I'm scared to put this box in with the rest. Any advice will be really appreciated, as I am an amateur haha. Thanks guys.
So after a few weeks of finishing projects, school and holidays, I have some time to report about my Havana trip with the amazing people that make FOH what it is. First, here is a video I shot with Marc (Brother Bear) when we found a hole, dust and a tobacco beetle in a BHK. There was a bunch of larvaes in it... and the guy yelling in the back is our beloved Keith lol
