    Booze infused

    Ok guys, so I live in east Tennessee and there is a place about 30 minutes from my house that is a legal moonshine distillery. One thing they sell is moonshine infused cigars and they are fantastic​, but expensive!. They are Churchills of unknown origin that I assume they have left in a humidor with open moonshine jars. Has anybody tried anything like this at home? It doesn't have to be moonshine, it could be scotch, bourbon or whiskey. If you have, how did you go about it and how well did it work?

    I have seen some people put cigars in a tupperware with a shot glass of certain liquors. No idea how they turned out.

    I am sure a little "search" will yield some results.
    Seams this gets brought up from time to time.
    I know guys have tried this with rum and liquors, but seldom see them rave about the results

    Edit: You will also find ( for good or bad) little love for infused cigars here
    An "oath" has no expiration date......

    Which is understandable. I thought it sounded pretty nasty until i tired it. Moonshine, for those who have never had it, has a very different flavor (can't really describe it, it's just moonshine). They aren't my favorite stick, just thought it might be a fun project to give a shot if it was worth my time.

    I've never tried any such thing, and the only person I know of that's done anything similar is a coworker's husband, who I'm told bought a few CCs on a cruise, which he and his friends dipped in Jack Dagnals before smoking.

    I would have been infuriated at the sullying of a fine work of art if she hadn't told me they bought them in Jamaica. Dip the fake-o sticks all you want, says I.

    You dont know until you try!

    Ive been meaning to try this with a few mediocre sticks I have, and some Lagavulin 16. Not much to lose but an ounce of good Scotch!

    Yeah, dipping it sounds vile. I just started a cabinet humidor build. Once it is done , I might get a few knock around cigars and give it a shot with some 'shine.

    Re: Booze infused

    The guy who got me into cigars way back in the 70s was a retired Marine neighbor. One day when he had a friend stop by, they were out on his back porch smoking cigars and I noticed he was dipping the end of his cigar in his scotch. When the guy left, I asked him about it. He explained that good scotch did a lot to kill the taste of a bad cigar and he didn't want to insult his friend about his bad taste in cigars. Over the years, I have found the practice to be useful.

    My local club does this. They take a glass jar, fill it with clear glass beads (or marbles), then fill the jar halfway up the beads with cognac, whisky or whiskey, and then let the cigars rest, foot down, in the jar. After about a week, the cigars are moist, infused, and ready to go. I dry box mine for a week or so, because they do tend to burn wet this way.

    So, the feet don't actually touch the cognac correct? Just want to make sure. Do you have any suggestions regarding cigars to use, obviously not going top shelf here.

    Re: Booze infused

    I am interested in the infusion method described here. I can see how it might improve a dog rocket to relative smokeability. But I agree with Robbie, never play around with a good cigar.

    Correct, the liquor only goes up halfway through the glass beads, and the cigar feet rest on the top of the beads. We use our house cigars for this, by the way.
