Flushed with enthusiasm from my previous successes, I tried my hand at infusing a few more cigars with different types of alcohol.
This time around, I chose brandy.
One cigar each, infused with Meukow Vanilla Cognac, Napoleon VSOP Brandy, or McGuinness Cherry Brandy. I used the same method as before: soaked a cotton makeup pad with the appropriate spirit, threw it into a Ziploc bag, placed a dried-out cigar in the bag, sealed it, and let it sit for a few days.
This time around, the cigars were forgotten over the course of our busy week. I remembered about them this morning while getting ready for work... when I opened the bags, the cigars were quite damp and squishy!
I figured the best way to dry them out would be by placing them into my humidor with the balance of my dried-out cigars. Let the dried-out ones absorb some of the excess moisture from the newly-infused ones... how symbiotic.
I tried the one infused with Vanilla Cognac on my lunch break today. It was heavenly... at least it was until I dropped the cigar halfway through.
Ah well, plenty more where that came from.
