Cigar Aficionado

Case

In the cigar production process, workers case, or slightly moisten, aged tobacco so that it will become supple and ready for manipulation. Some factories use a technique in which the leaves are bathed in a fine mist of water, others use huge rooms with extremely high humidity and others dip the stems of tobacco directly in water. The leaves are usually prepared a day in advance. Casing is also a term used for flavoring added to many varieties of pipe tobacco.
