Default Bourbon Infused cigars

Messing around with some less desirable cigars by trying to infuse them. Put them in an airtight jar with a small cup of bourbon. Has anyone else ever tried this? How long should I leave them? The wife wants to try doing some with vanilla. Has anyone tried that?

Never tried doing it myself, but the Pappy Van winkle cigars made by Drew Estate are damn good.

A friend of mine used to market Jack infused cigars. He would walk through the humidor every few hours with spray bottles of jack daniels and just spray the air. He said after 2 months they would be ready.

I have not tried adding anything to cigars but I like the occasional Trader Jack Rum flavored cigar. Sounds interesting though.

Kind of had in mind to let them sit a couple months. May try one in a month. Also have a couple sticks going with vanilla for the wife.

Checked them at 4 weeks. They definitely have a bourbon aroma to them. May smoke one and see what a month has done to them. The vanilla ones I'm doing for my wife smell fantastic.

The one month bourbon infused was pretty good. Going to try another at the end of the month.

Meaning....it didn't suck. Started out as an EP Carrillo New Wave Connecticut. Had a nice aroma and a slight bourbon taste. The middle third of it was quite tasty.
