Since way back in the late 20th century (1995), I have been pressure-cooking cigars in rum and sharing them with my friends. Everyone loves them, even people who say they don't like cigars, and as a result I now end up having to make large batches of cigars of 50 or more at a time. That's OK because it is easy and doesn't cost very much, as you will soon see.
The fun thing about this method of infusing cigars with rum under heat and pressure is that it violates just about every cigar purist's rule of keeping cigars, which are:
Always keep cigars at exactly the proper humidity of 70%
Always keep cigars at the precise temperature of 70 degrees F (21.1 degrees C)
Expensive cigars are always better than cheap cigars, so buy the most expensive cigars you can afford
With this recipe, you will basically pressure-cook cheap $1 full-sized cigars in high-proof rum (100% relative humidity) for a long period of time under pressure in a very hot environment (130 degrees F or 54.4 degrees C). We will completely ignore all the rules above and then some, while producing the finest smoking and best tasting cigars that most people have ever had, including cigar experts!
Let's get to it, shall we?
