The Secrets of Cigar Lighters

Buying cigars and then smoking them is an enjoyable experience. Another part of the cigar smoking experience is actually lighting one up and taking those first few puffs. You need to be properly equipped with the right light to light your cigar successfully. Here is what you need to know about cigar lighters.


Types of Cigar Lighters


Zippo Lighter


You might be tempted to light your cigar with a Zippo lighter. The problem with this is that this sort of lighter is fueled by oil. The fuel uses paraffin as its base, and this leaves an unpleasant and strong taste, so it’s generally not recommended that you use a Zippo lighter. If you use the Zippo, let it burn a little bit before you put it to your cigar as some of the older is going to dissipate.


Butane Lighter

Butane is a lighter fluid that is quite odorless, so it’s not going to impact the flavor of your cigar. This is a good type of lighter to use for lighting your cigar. You will find many different butane lighters on the market. One popular option is the butane torch lighter. This creates a concentrated and intense flame that gets the cigar lit quickly.


Wooden Watches


Wooden matches will work well for letting your cigar. They are a better choice than a simple paper match. The paper match simply isn’t going to get hot enough, and it will burn out quite quickly without lighting your cigar successfully. Make sure you buy decent quality wooden matches to light your cigars with. you may go through a couple of matches to get the cigar successfully.


Cedar Spill


A traditional way of lighting a cigar is by using strips of cedar, which are called spills. It’s simply a tightly-wound piece of cedar it looks much like a cigar itself although a lot thinner.  This is a pure and natural material, and it won’t ruin the flavor of your cigar. You may get a slight cedar essence, but it’s usually not too powerful. These burn quite slow and last a long time, but you also have to be wary of the ash they leave behind, and it can be a little messy. Light the spill and then use the spill to light the cigar.


Why No Regular Lighter?


You might be tempted to use a plain cigarette lighter such as a disposable lighter. The problem with this is that the disposable lighter is going to take a long time to light the cigar and the lighter itself will get quite hot. A torch lighter is wind resistant, and it’s going to get the cigar lit quickly.

You also want to avoid the lighting any sort of cigar on a stove. This will create a very bad smell, and it is simply going to make your cigar smoking experience a very unpleasant one.
