edameff Posted March 28, 2010 Share Posted March 28, 2010 Hi Guys, OK, I hate to always be the one to dig up bones and re-ask all of the age old questions, but here goes. Mold vs. Bloom (Plume). I am sick of arguing with my (X) friends/cigar buddies here in Florida over this, so sick in fact that I purchased a digital photographic microscope (Please don’t EVER get into an argument with me!). I have seen many pictures of mold vs. bloom on forums and sites, but I need the expert opinion of my new found resource and friends here on FOH. The attached photos (sorry, still learning how to focus this Damn thing) are of the H. Upmann Robusto that was released in the Travel Humidor with 6 stogies. I bought from 2 different sources, and both have this “GROWTH” on them. I know it looks ugly up close (don’t make the mistake of using this camera to look up your nose, you won’t eat for a week!) but most things do when you are at this distance. The photos are of the same area on the cigar, some before, and some after a light brushing with my finger. It came off completely, which I think is bloom, but man it looks bad up close. Come on you junior scientists, put on your research hats and give me that good input I am used to getting here!! Thanks, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
