Explicitly speaking, the problem with acid and other flavored cigars, is that they are flavored using highly volatile compounds that are intended to vaporize easily. They use carrier compounds like alcohol and other low evaporation point hydrocarbons to transport aromatic compounds into the air, and into your nose.

So, unlike tobacco that contains its components in the plant's cells, and releases them naturally while burning, the highly volatile "unnatural" components of an acid are boiling out of the cigar at a prodigious rate, and these items can and will pass through cello and be absorbed by any organic product. In the case of an all tobacco cigar, you could actually cut up and re blend two cigars together, and they will still be all tobacco components, and you may not perceive differences. If even traces of oil of clove, cedar oil, or transmission fluid taint the wrapper of a tobacco cigar, that thing is going to be sitting right under your nose as those pollutants evaporate off.

Just tiny traces of these bizarre compounds will be able to stand out as you smoke an all tobacco cigar.

If you ever go to a store that has acids tossed into the humi room, you'll realize that just a couple of boxes of acids will absolutely overwhelm that entire room, leaving it smelling like a drunk just farted and sprayed a can of glade to cover it. They will do the same thing in a box, given time. Even one is enough to cause a problem.

Something to note, have you ever seen the liquor infused cigars? noticed they are almost all tubed? This is why.
