I'm not sure if this thread isn't too far gone to get back on topic.
I tried this on a 5 Vegas 'A'. I put in under my tap water for about 3 seconds. It took a little more to light. The cut was unaffected. The draw was a little cooler for about the first inch. I smoked the cigar outside and after the first inch it had dried out and smoked just like I had never wet it. The wrapper dried a lighter shade of brown than it started.
Well, I've done much stupider things in my life, so I'll try it. I think I'll do it with one of the sticks that often gives me wrapper issues from drying out fast as I smoke it (AZ humidity is usually around 10%).
