Yes, counterfeit Cuban cigars can have a host of additives. That's why I only buy Cuban cigars in Miami where there is order and honesty.

The Cubans have been adding DMHO to tobacco for decades.

Dimagnesium Hydroxide? Is that some kind of plant antacid?

Good one. I drink it every day. The only ill effects I have experienced from it is excessive urination. Big Grin

I didn't know. I've been running DMHO in my car for years and even at times in the airplane for better fuel mileage but I had no idea it worked for cigars too.

From the C.A. dictionary of terms:

Bethune:

A mixture of herbs, wine, rum or a combination of such materials used to treat certain types of tobacco. It’s a process some cigarmakers do, but few discuss. Royal Jamaica was famous for using a bethune on its tobacco.

Do the Cubans use it? Anybody's guess. . .

Genuine CCs don't contain additives in them.

Asking that question in Cuba, and I have, is like asking about Shrodinger's cat.

Good one, I'll be using that.

Big, big difference between a bethune and additives. A bethune, which some cigarmakers use, is a mix of natural ingredients mixed in some form of alcohol that might be added to tobacco during fermentation. Cigarettes are made with a melange of chemicals and other ingredients. No comparison.

To answer the first question, premium cigars do not contain additives like cigarettes. Cuban or non Cuban.

I know somebody here involved in importing tobacco. He has to provide to the government, for revenue and other reasons, a full list of the constituents of everything he imports.
The list for cigarettes, he says, is over three pages long. For Cuban cigars there are two items, tobacco and vegetable gum, I can't remember if water needs to be listed as a constituent.
No mention of bethune, betun or anything of that sort.

Q: Why are quantum physicists so poor at sex?
A: Because when they find the position, they can't find the momentum, and when they have the momentum, they can't find the position.

Ooops, I thought this was the quantum physics joke thread. Big Grin

I personally haven't seen any cigarettes added to my Cuban cigars.
