Many people like to relax with a good cigar. Cigar smokers often enjoy trying a variety of brands and flavours of cigars even when they have a favourite already. Flavoured cigars have grown in popularity in recent years and are sold in a wide variety. Some common flavouring added to cigars include whiskey, rum, cognac, chocolate, honey, vanilla and a variety of fruit flavours. It's easy to flavour your own cigars at home rather than purchasing them.

  2. 2

    Set the alcohol in the corner of an airtight container such as a food storage container.

  3. 3

    Place the cigars into the airtight container and seal shut.

  4. 4

    Check the alcohol level in the container every three days. Add more if needed.

  5. 5

    Leave the cigars and the alcohol sealed up for two weeks. Your cigars will absorb the flavour over this period and be ready to smoke.

  1. 1

    Take a couple of tobacco leaves and pour a bit of flavoured extract on them. You can use flavours such as mint, vanilla, orange or others.

  2. 2

    Place the leaves in the corner of an airtight container.

  3. 3

    Place your cigars into the container next to the flavoured leaves.

  4. 4

    Seal the container and leave cigars in there for a couple of weeks.

Tips and warnings

  • Leave the lid off of the airtight container for several hours if your cigars absorb too much moisture from the liquid.
