To cellophane or not to cellophane. This is a subject of controversy among cigar smokers. Manufacturers wrap their cigars in cellophane to protect the delicate wrappers during shipment. Some experts claim that cigars will breathe better and age more quickly if stored without the cellophane wrapper.
Whether you take the wrapper on or off is a matter of preference. Cellophane is porous and will allow your cigars to age. They will also help your cigars maintain their humidity. Keeping the cellophane on is a good idea if you travel with your humidor or if you open your humidor very frequently. Some like to leave the cellophane on to limit the exchange between different tastes and aromas inside the humidor.
