Barrel-Aging Tobacco

Aging tobacco in barrels is a practice that has been borrowed from the wine industry and is currently used for a few cigar brands in the market. The tobacco has already been aged during the fermentation process, and undergoes a second aging in the barrels. During this aging process, the barrels absorb some of the ammonia and other fermentation by products making this tobacco taste smoother. The flavor of the tobacco also is affected by marrying with the inside of the barrel, but this will have less impact on flavor since not all of the tobacco is in contact with the barrel.
