Lighting your cigar/How do you do it? – Spirited Smoke

Lighting your cigar/How do you do it?

How do you like to light your cigar? 

Torch? Matches? Cedar strips? Fuck it, just get it lit?

After you pick your tool, how do you go about lighting it? 

For my lighting preference, I love to use a small single flame torch.

As for lighting it –

I lightly toast the wrapper/binder, then toast the filler.

Once it’s about ready to go, I back off the heat and blow some smoke out.

Final step for me, is to puff on the cigar while using my torch. Once I see that orange flame to appear off the end of the cigar I know I’m good to go. I always give it one last check to ensure it’s 100% blissful.

Who’s got a different method ?
