I've purchased a few cigars and I've just lit one which s so tight it's unsmokeable! I once read, on here I think, of someone's grandmother clipping off a half inch of her husbands cigar and smoking it in a briar. What do you guys think? Would you give it a go? Prepare the cigar and pop it in a briar? If I can I don't want to throw £6 down the drain but equally I don't wanna be sick lol

It is not something I would do because it will ghost your pipe. If you have a cob, try it in that. Cigars are meant to be smoked whole so they develop as they are smoked, stuffing a pipe with cigar tobacco I think would taste pretty harsh. Let us know if you try it.

I have a very frugal friend who smokes the ends of his cigars in a cob.. He says he really can't taste a difference, and saves money to boot... I use a meerschaum cigar tip, and only throw away a small nub..

I've tried this a few times during my many years of pipe and cigar smoking, and the results were always unsuccessful.

I would no sooner try this again than try to fashion a cigar out of pipe tobacco, if this could even be done.

I've been tempted to finish off a $20 cigar in a pipe, but the aficionado in me made it impossible to do. I take too much pride in the art of both cigar and pipe smoking. But what the hell, if you want to take a cob and try it...

As far as tight cigars, you normally won't find that issue in a quality cigars but it still happens, even with ageing. I have a poker as a throw in on an order, and found it worked fine on a couple tight rolls.

I tried it once with a cigar that was left out of the humidor too long and got dried out. It was acrid and harsh, but I'm guessing it would have been that way no matter how it was smoked, given its crispy nature.

Nothing like the last inch of a Davidoff double R in a Meerschaum. I never let it go out though. Just stuff it right in my pipe. Mmmmmm,

My suggestion is that if you choose to smoke cigar nubs in a pipe, then dedicate one pipe specifically for that. Whether it be a cob or an old briar pipe whatever, but dedicate one pipe for the cigar nubs.

I had a friend post a picture on his Facebook of him smoking an entire cigar in a pipe. Which I might be crazy enough to try myself... If I ever get into cigars.
