Bleedthrough/Taste transfer questions

I apologize in advance if this is a question that has been asked many times before, I looked through a few pages of old threads and didn't find anything much on the topic and it seems like the information I have found outside this site seems to be a 50/50 split.

I just wondered...Does placing cigars of different varieties next to each other unwrapped cause bleedthrough or taste transfer? I have a 40ct humidor (word of advice to noobs, go big.) and I didn't expect to fill it but now I have, my concern is that placing certain cigars next to each other is going to cause some form of taste mixing, I don't store maduros next to cameroons but I am wondering if some of my full bodied cigars are going to somehow rub off on my lighter smokes.

If I had it to do again I would have bought a trayed 300-500ct humidor and kept everything separate but for now I have my little 40ct as my primary storage. Just so you know, Acids are not a worry as I don't smoke them and will never put one anywhere near my prize sticks.

Thanks in advance for any help.

as we know i'm not an expert by any meaqns but as i have read and heard "marrying" (taste transfer) can be a problem.

I would guess as long as you have a divider between to very diffrent cigars you should be okay. and i woul dguess that the length of time they are next to each other woul dmatter too.

not sure if this helps but i would very carefull of what cigars i place int he same section of my humi if they are going to age for a bit....

Actually Marrying is a good thing, that is when all mthe oils and such in a cigar "bleed" throughout the whole stick. I would not put any flavord cigars in my humi, but evrything else is alright..

If you have flavored cigars keep them together and in cellophane, or throw them out...

As for just taste transfer in general (unflavored sticks), I don't think having your singles together for short term storage will do anything, IMHO. But, if it's long term (1+ years) I would put them in different boxes.

You are ok, as long as you keep the Lars Tetens and Acids out.

For long term storage I would try and separate them……………………..

If it was possible to tranfer flavors from one cigar to another -
I'd have a cheap stick in every box of good cigars!

It just doesn't work that way - except as others have said in flavored cigars - they can funk up the entire humidor!


Never put a 1/2 smoked cigar back ina humidor!
I know taht seems simple but over the years I've heard people do it many times and ruin many cigars!

I once tried to keep a half smoked cigar that I was reluctant to throw away. Not in my humidor, but in a humi bag....when I opened it a few days later to finish....WHEEW! that thing stunk up the whole room...lesson learned..
