Butane Torch vs Soft Flame
Most cigar smokers use butane torch lighters. As the name suggests, these use highly refined butane fuel which produces a hot blue flame, suitable for lighting a cigar quickly. Butane torches have single, double, triple or even quadruple flames; the more flames the faster the cigar ignition. It’s also helpful to keep in mind that it’s easier to light big cigars with a multi-flame butane torch. Keep in mind, however, that a triple flame torch uses a lot more fuel than a single torch flame lighter so you’ll wind up refilling the former more often. For this reason, most single flame torch lighters are smaller and more compact than multi flame cigar torches.
Soft flame cigar lighters are very different than torch lighters. Purists will use a soft flame to set a piece of Spanish cedar alight, then use the cedar flame to gently toast and light their cigar. The soft flame imparts a certain nostalgic flair to the ritual, but it comes apart in windy conditions!
Lastly, this section has the world’s most iconic line of lighters, Zippo: “The Name In Flame”. The basic shape of the Zippo lighter has not changed since Zippo was first invented. Today’s Zippo lighter has gone beyond its steel predecessors and Zippos now have sophisticated finishes on the outside.
Choosing a lighter is a very personal choice. Victory Cigars online store has a wide range of cigar torches, pipe lighters and Zippos to make your task enjoyable.
*Most* butane lighters use a standardized fuel tip for refueling.
