I bought a couple of Padron 2000s a couple of days ago.
When I got home later, I noticed some white specks on them. I searched and found it was bloom or mold. I pulled one out to look at it with a magnifying glass. When I did, the specks weren't really on the cigar, but on the inside of the cellophane. it was sort of fuzzy, so I guess I got some mold.
Most people seem to be of the opinion that it's fine to smoke them, and I could take them back. I picked them out myself, so taking them back a few days later seems a little unfair to the guy that owns the store. And I'm OK smoking them.
I bought them to put away with other good cigars to smoke once I got through the lousy Thompson samplers I bought, so I'd rather not smoke them, yet. But I don't want to goof up the other good cigars I've already accumulated. My search didn't really come up with an answer as to whether it was OK to go ahead and store them with the others or not.
Should I just go ahead and put them with the others or take it as a lesson and smoke them now?
