Infusing cigars

ReeseTX12ReeseTX12 Posts: 10

Hello friends, been a long time since getting on here. I wanted to know how y’all infuse your cigars. I looked it up and so I got a air tight jar put some coffee beans in it with a Boveda package and put a cigar in it.
Is this the right way at all?

    Dude, buy infused cigars. You can't do it as well as drew estate can, so don't try.

    Some of us just buy good/great cigars and then smoke said cigars the way they were meant to be smoked.

    Hello @ReeseTX12. Welcome back. Brace yourself for a little blowback. Most of the guys here do not smoke infused cigars and think it's a bad idea to begin with. But as far as your plan goes, I would say have fun and see what happens.

    I put some JR Alternative dog rockets in a mason jar with some whiskey barrel chunks and they were just dog rockets with some whiskey vapor added. Didn't help, so I used them to chew on when I was working inside at home and eventually gave the rest away.

    Don't feel bad, many of us have tried it, without success in general. Your brain tells you things like "Rum-soaked cigars...", and you think "Where'd I hear that before?", so you want to give it a try. The thing is, to do it properly you have to begin the infusion process long before the leaf is ever rolled into a cigar.

    Look to the brands mentioned above if you're into that kind of smoke. The Java and Java Mint are OK, for what they are. If you're more into incense-like aroma, Acid Red, or Liquid, or Kuba-Kuba may be good to you. Kopi Luwak was an enjoyable coffee infused cigar, to me. Some things are just best left to the professionals.

    The one I had was OK, for an infused cigar. Sort of sweet coffee. I don't drink sweetened coffee, though, so it was a one-time thing.

    I don't know how they feed the tobacco leaves to the big cats, or whose job it is to collect the rag-tag output, but they did a great job of clean up. Do you suppose it may be that's what the Charmin Bears do when they're not softing their behinds in commercials?

    I have a small humidor that is for infused cigars, mostly coffee. From time to time, I enjoy one with my morning coffee out on the deck.

    I've been told some of the infused PDRs are good but have no experience.

    Don't let the wife know what you spend on guns, ammo or cigars.
