    don't do it, its like putting ketchup on a steak.

    the story i've heard is that in the olden days, people used to get really really dry tobacco, they then dipped it into alcohol in order to help rehydrate and make it smokeable. no real need to do this anymore and you would horribly cover up the flavors of your cigar, and probably destroy it.

    For goodness sake, man! Do NOT soak your cigars in any sort of alcoholic beverage!!!! Not only will this slow the aging process, but it will also promote hatching of cigar-o-holic beetles (a cure for which has not been developed).

    I've been quite lucky (IMHO) in fending off such vile creatures through the following process:

    1. Carefully place your cigar in the ashtray
    2. Carefully pour a jigger of beverage, placing it 2 inches from the cigar
    3. Carefully place your ass on the can, with a cigar catalog for amusement
    4. Carefully clean your bottom
    5. Carefully (so the wife won't notice) light your infused cigar
    6. Carefully drink the jigger as you enjoy your cigar
    7. Carefully ease yourself into the bed, and whisper sweet nothings


    Take two aspirines, and call me in the morning!!!!!!

    I never dip my ISOM's but I have been known to dip my NCs. Just barely touching the end in so Grand Mariner or Markers Marks for me. That's just me but hey I'm a freak anyway. Guilty as charge.

    never thought it would work. seems to me like youd get that flavor, but at the same time itd be like dipping it in water/any liquid, which wouldn't be good.

    seems like you could get that same flavor just some drinking it and swishing it around, but hey i wouldn't know.

    might have to try it with a rocket and see if it's any better.

    Dipping your cigar in alcohol should be cigar smoker rule #1 never to break!
    I've heard many an amateur ask about dipping the cigar...not saying you are an amateur but to quote rutkus
    don't do it, its like putting ketchup on a steak.
    The cigar is meant to be enjoyed on it's own possibly with the addition of a drink to drink not to dip.

    It's not a very good idea.

    Never heard of dipping but I have heard of placing a single (or more) in a standalone environment, like a sealed baggie or extra humi, to impart some of the flavor from a fine alchohol into the cigar. I just read it recently actually, can't remember what kind of alcohol was used.

    will definitely change how the cigar tastes since it will effect the draw and accumulation of tar at the head while smoking. not a good idea if you ask me...

    I can remember a couple of years ago during New Years I gifted a friend of mine (who don't smoke cigars at all) a HdM Petit Robusto. He proceeded to tell me how it's good to dip your cigars in alcohol (he was drinking Crown at the time) and then dipped it in and took it back out.

    I then proceeded to yell at him for 10 minutes because he did that. He assured me that "it was the thing to do" (he was a bartender at a pretty nice restaurant at the time) and that's what a lot of people did. I'll never understand it, won't ever do it, and advise anyone not to do it either.

    From time to time I will dip mine (dip not soak) in some red wine, Jim Beam or single malt depending upon what I happen to be drinking at the time. (Never beer) Try it. Only you can tell if you like it or not.

    i once heard of a person who kept their cigars with a glass of whisky in a sealed container to transfer the flavors, never heard of dipping a cigar tho.

    I agree, don't do it.

    I heard that in the old days they used to use a nasty tasting glue to hold everything together. The alcohol would eliminate, or at least off set, the nasty flavor. Since everyone now uses a tasteless gum, it is no longer required and detracts from the actual flavor of the cigar.
