Who has done it. What choice do you use. Any do's and don't about it. What is you favorite. What process to use or take.
Thank you Patrick. I was just wondering if changing the liquid (not that I want to) that we use could maybe change the flavor of our sticks. You sold me.Patrick said:I used to have a second small humi where I just kept a layer of unused coffee ground up in the bottom. It gave the cigars a nice toasty coffee taste.

I use liquor instead of distilled water to humidify a "Tupper-dore" for several months to year. I use the Tupper-dore because I want a larger area then I would get in a regular humidor, and this allows for a larger airspace to exchange "vapors" in. The liquor(s) of choice for me are scotches and bourbons. Once in a while I'll place a sweet liquor in like Benedictine or Amoretto in the humidifier. The humidifier is simply a glass container with floral clay in it. I also place a small amount of glycol solution in the sponge to prevent over humidification. Any cigars I put into the infusion process do not get touched except for the occasional rotation to assure all are getting equal exposure to the booze. The process won't make a dog rocket in to a primo, but it does move them up from the "toss out" list to the "okay to smoke while mowing the yard" list. 8) :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:
You the man Ram. Thanks Rick. And the process begins.
I'll try and take a few pictures of the apparatus this weekend and post them for you guys.
Maybe I should reconsider... I am a cheap-ass half Irishman... :beerchug:ram416 said:Ice, it can be a complex process. I started out doing it as an experiment to recover some dog rockets I was gifted. With a little trial and error, I happened on to a system that make works just for that process. 8)
Call me a cheap-ass Irishman, but could bring myself to just toss out a stick. :|
