I chewed my cigar stub: Is that unusual?
Q: Some time ago, I smoked an H. Upmann #2 Havana. It was so good that after I had smoked it down to a 1/4 inch, I knocked off the ashes and chewed the remainder. Have you ever heard of any other cigar smokers doing this?

A: It's certainly unusual, and I doubt many BOTL's will follow your lead. I thought you were going to write that you finished the stub in a pipe, which is not unusual, and I believe stems from a Cuban tradition. Plus, you smoked it down to a 1/4-inch!? I think that's a record, even for me, with my dopey toothpicks. That said, I'm not surprised the "chaw" was good. Obviously it was excellent tobacco, and probably sweet in flavor. Suffice it to say, I bet you're not the only cigar smoker out who's done it. I'll be very curious to see the comments we get on this one.�
