Infused Cigar Recommendation

The_KidThe_Kid Posts: 7,871 ✭✭✭
I'll be the first to admit I'm not a big fan of infused cigars, but in all fairness I havent tried that many, actually just a couple from the Acid collection. I am looking to find a high end Bourbon or Rum infused cigar. Not sure if the Oliveros qualifies. Looking for more suggestions. Thanks I appreciate the help.

    Haven't had many infused cigars, but I have a Gurkha Grand Reserve (infused with Cognac) put away for a rainy day. Everyone I've talked to says it's great!

    Which Acid's have you had?

    Not in the rum or cognac category but Tabek Especial negra or red eye are pretty good coffee infused cigars with maduro wraps. Much better than acids imo. Ive only had Acid cold fusion bleh. The Tabeks are more like high quality traditional cigars infused with Nicraguan coffee.

    I've heard good things about the Kopi Luwak but haven't yet tried one. Besides, that's coffee-infused and you asked about rum or cognac.

    The only infused cigars I would be unopposed to smoking are the Tabak Especial and Java stuff from DE. Not a fan of the artificial floral/perfume tasting stuff.

    Makers Mark has a excellent ( imho ) tubed cigar . I have read about but not tried a cigar called RHUM , I cant remember if it was tubed or not but it sounded really good and is on my list to try .

    The Tabak Especiale and the Kopi Luwak are very good cigars if you like coffee flavor .
    Seems to be more rum infused cigars popping up now - maybe the new in thing for the infused crowd . One of my local B&M's even has a house version .

    +1 on the Java... It's sweet but has some nice flavors.

    Java and Tabak Especial are both fantastic smokes!

    Erin go Bragh. Infusion of Irish Whiskey is pretty subtle. Tip is sweetened, but it isn't like a swisher or anything. The smoke reminds me of how the inside of a whiskey barrel smells. The price is very reasonable. In my book, if you like an infused cigar now and then, this is the way to go.

    I have a sudden craving to stick my head inside a bourbon barrel. Now where to find one...

    My mom planted 400 flowers each spring so we had a lot of whiskey barrel flower pots. You could also swing by Lynchburg, Tenn. The aging barns smell awsome.

    I live in Utah, so no major distilleries over here, but one day I'll totally head over to Kentucky to do the tours.
