Would sugar paste (sugar and water) make a good cigar glue?

I use a geleatin water paste. others use flour/water. Not to sure how the sugar water would go. In my ind it might not be viscous enough to maintain a hold and you will end up with an unroll. but then some guys just use water too so try it out and let us know.

I've tried sugar and water and I haven't had any luck with that. Gelatin works the best in my experence. Molasses is also good ruins the cigars tobacco smell but adds some unique flavor.

I didn't think of that, but good idea. I'll try molasses when I get leaves. I imagine it would add a good flavor too.

With molasses less is more. For a robusto sized cigar I use around a dime sized drop and be sure to let the molasses on the cigar dry out before you light it or the molasses will become to fluid while your smoking it. But I think it's unique and worth trying at least once good luck.

Isn't fruit pectin the usual go-to cigar glue? That is what I've been told by several seasoned home rollers. The stuff is dirt cheap and all you do is mix small quantities with a little water and it's ready. It's sold everywhere that carries canning supplies.

I can not comment on Cigars, But dextrin is a good adhesive. Used as a good paper adhesive in fireworks. Nothing but wheat starch.

I'm kinda partial to AB epoxies, but cyanoacrylate is great stuff long as I keep my fingers out of it!

I use Certo liquid pectin (comes in a box with two foil pouches in it), I buy it at my local grocery store. It's sort of a thick syrupy gel. Works great. Odorless, tasteless, and seems perfect.

About a quarter teaspoon of flour in the bottom of an egg cup then half fill with water. Microwave for a very short time (10 sec?) After mixing well of course. Make a clear paste which worked real well on the cigars I made last year

I've never tried pectin but that's the normal thing I read about.

I've rolled a few using Tennessee Honey... works for me. Adds a touch of sweet to the outer leaf as well.

It doesn't hold like glue but works enough for me and it's in my freezer so I'll be using it till I get my hands on some pectin.
