I was thinking...I always liked a soft flame.

Then these won't work for you but...very cool.

I bought one of these last year...because.

Works great and fits into your favorite Zippo shell.

I have this one from Rocky Patel. Works great when it works. Doesn't want to light all the time even when I fill it.

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


The butane insert....I bought a few years ago. I put it in an old and sentimental Zippo case I had and a leather case...stuck it in the truck and forgot about it.

Have tried it several times after two years...no leakage and has lit on first try every time.

Here's one for cigars from the same company that makes the Zippo insert. Gets 4.5 stars.

Going to stop by my lounge and see if they carry that lighter. I like that it's made by Zippo. Thanks Rob

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


My local cigar lounge saves the cedar liners from the cigar boxes and you can snap them into spills to light your cigar.

At home I use a good old blow torch, or a book of matches.

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


Had a chance to try the Patagas Black's. They were surprising mellow and had good flavor. However, they were wrapped very tight. Had a hard time keeping them lit and drawing.

Humidor is a constant 67%.

What was the cigar you and Andy were smoking when we came over to your place, it smelled good! Side note, we need to do that again this summer, I really enjoyed hanging out with your wife! Maybe I can plan better and bring something for a a snack or dessert! Lol

@ LadyDreamer

Actually, I think it was a cheep (generic) cigar I buy by the brick. Yes, we should do that again for sure.

Update. I've had 4 of these and only had an issue with one. The others were absolutely flawless in terms of flavor and smokability. Good cigar. Full flavor but not too strong.

Sometimes you just get a dud. It happens. Had the same thing happen to a Rocky Patel.
