Recipe Notes

It's a Bourbon-flavored cigar, of sorts.

This started out as an attempt at a bourbon-flavored cigar for /r/MixersClub. It's still a bourbon-flavored cigar, but at some point it became more about celebrating the pairing of the two Kentucky concentrates than about producing an authentic cigar. TFA Kentucky Bourbon is a bit boozy, yet sweet, with that unique corny sweetness of sour mash whiskey. FLV Kentucky Blend is a bright yet ashy, slightly spicy tobacco. They make beautiful bluegrass music together.

FLV Bourbon supports the TFA version with richness and an authentic charred oak barrel flavor, which the tobaccos also enjoy. FLV Red Burley fills out the Kentucky Blend and makes it richer, darker, and more satisfying. FW Salted Caramel enhances both the tobaccos and bourbons and builds a dark, sweet but not too sweet bridge between them. FA Cuban Supreme isn't necessary for a satisfying bourbon-bacco vape, but without it, the result is rather soggy. A touch of it here wraps all this up in a somewhat green but dry cigar wrapper and brings it back within the realm of a bourbon-flavored cigar.

Steep Time is truly just a best after recommendation, not a requirement here. This is great at 3 days, just enough time for the bourbon to relax a little and everything to come together. A few days longer, and the tobaccos will fade a bit. This is a good time to vape it if you want more of a sweet bourbon vape with just a little tobacco kick. But at two weeks, they're back and everything works together as intended.
