Making Cigars

Here, in order, the pictures of my second attempt at cigar making!

I've just posted this link to a friend of mine who's a big cigar fan. Thank you for sharing!

They look very professional, do you inhale the smoke? (I know you're not supposed to inhale the smoke of a cigar but after smoking fags for all my life I always do when smoking a cigar, can't help it, gives me terrible coughes and headaches hahaha)

Nerine, I need a bit more research on this, and to take a look at some of the video clips of the process in action. A couple of things learned: stick the leaves with egg white and roll them round a wire, then pull it out, so they draw better.

Chrish, yeah, I take the evil stuff into my lungs if I can. In the case of these I can't because they're still too damp and too tightly rolled.

Interesting to note the price of cigars in Athens airport. Some there were as much as 20 Euros each.
