So pectin is the semi standard for natural ways to glue cigars as I've gathered from sources around the internet.

Has anyone ever heard of using Propolis? This is the stuff bees make when sealing gaps in their hives and sticking their wax to the things. It's really expensive but my father-in-law just so happens to have bees and therefore lots of propolis.

Any one every heard of using it for a natural cigar glue?

Is it worth a shot? I should probably taste it next time I'm up there...

Never heard of that... I imagine if it isn't too "waxy", doesn't have a taste, and wont mold or anything, itd be a good substitute.
