    Default It's not mould, it's plume!


    1 Not allowed!

    This has raised its head elsewhere, as it does from time to time.
    I'm befuddled as to why it's still even a discussion, when the existence of plume has not been proven.
    Can anyone point me toward any evidence proving that plume exists - and by evidence, I don't mean a master blender from CAO on youtube saying it exists, I mean actual, scientific evidence.....
    I'd actually be glad to be proved wrong in my belief that plume is a big fat load of cobblers invented by retailers to get shot of cigars that are past their best

    Big fat thread on this over on FOH - good read.

    Yes, the FOH thread is great. Members have sent in cigars with alleged plume and they have been tested by a microbiologist. All have been some form of fungus or mould.

    I've seen a UK retailer use it as a get out when someone has mentioned mould in a review. I don't know if retailers believe it is true or just use it to defend mouldy cigars. The cynical side of me says its the latter.

    Yep - I've read that thread extensively, but couldn't remember if we were allowed to link to FoH, so erred on the side of caution.
    And they haven't got what I want.
    I'm beginning to think it's because it doesn't exist.
    Arguing with someone who believes in plume to arguing with someone who believes in a God - you're arguing with belief, not fact, so it makes it very difficult!
