Likefine aged cigars but don't want to fork over the cash for an aged import? Niether do I. I'll discuss the basics of cheap cigars, what aging is, and what you need. The list is simple and can be had at any dollar store, most of these item are in your home right now;
- a foam cooler or any platic air tight lidded box of a good size. don't use a paper box
- a sponge
- a small container for the sponge (a soup/soda can, or a small plastic food container is ideal)
- a pair of scissors, a knife, or your hands if you are able.
- cigars (machine made is just fine, and the focus of this lesson)
I encourage the use of Phillies Titan cigars, with are the cheapest by volume cigar (as low as 65 cents on various internet shops)
for a review of most of the machine made cigars on the market (the brands which are nationwide and have/will remain stagnant for decades), please check out the following blog;
sorry for the poor pictures.
