It’s nice to have a lighter on hand when you’re getting ready to smoke your favorite cigars, but you can’t use just any lighter. A Bic lighter, for lack of a better way to put this, doesn’t have the power to light cigars in a decent amount of time. Meanwhile, a more powerful classic lighter design, like a Zippo, has its own problems; namely, that it often leaves the cigar tasting of the Zippo fuel, which is less than desirable for those of us who want to be able to enjoy our cigars. After all, as Hank Hill said repeatedly on the King of the Hill television series: you want to ‘taste the meat, not the heat’, or rather, taste the tobacco, not the lighter fuel.
Now, the best way to be able to light this would be to light a fire with a match, then use that fire to light a cedar strip. This would allow you to have a pretty unadulterated taste. But, let’s be honest here; that is not something that you want to, or can do, most of the time. Most of the time, you will need to be doing something more along the lines of lighting your cigar from a lighter, and when that happens, you’ll want to have some form of torch lighter.
The Asylum 13 Double Torch lighter is just such a lighter. It has twin torches, allowing you to light cigars more swiftly, but best of all, it is affordable. It comes in three colors but the one I have is red and black, meaning in my mind that the red color will stand out almost anywhere. This helps cut down on how many lighters you lose a year, and best of all, the lighter just looks cool. If you’re looking for a new inexpensive lighter, this may well be the one for you.
