Choosing the top cigar lighter can seem like an arduous task. With the sheer amount of accessory companies and the similarities many lighters share, it seems like it might be impossible to actually have the best cigar lighter. However, by comparing some of the top companies and testing them, we were able to compile a list of what we feel are in fact the top cigar lighters. First off, these lighters all use butane fuel. Using a Bic or gas fuel lighter will leave a gasoline taste on your cigar and it is much more difficult to burn your cigar evenly.
The Lotus Orion
The Lotus Orion boasts an incredibly cool design. It has a push button start that conjures up notions of high-end Lotus sports cars. Its two flames ignite at an angle to give you a precision burn on our cigar each and every time. It also comes with a cigar punch that can be flipped out making this a great 2 in 1 tool. All of these factors plus being visually impressive makes this one of the top cigar lighters on the market.
If you shop for cigars online, specifically budget cigars, then you know that sometimes the best cigars are really the most expensive cigars. This can also be said for the top cigar lighters. The Vertigo cyclone retails for $10 and is a great everyday use lighter. It uses a triple flame to really make sure your cigars are burning nice and even. It has a clear body design, so you can see the amount of butane fuel that is left and can fill it accordingly. With a little love and care, this durable cigar lighter can last years.
Xikar is one of the top accessory makers in the cigar industry, so it makes sense that one of their many cigar lighters would be present on this list. The HP3 has a modern sleek design and comes in a variety of colors. It uses three flames that all come to a point for a precision burn. It also has two clear fuel gauges so you can see when it needs to be refilled. Its bottom knob makes changing your flame strength incredibly easy and like all Xikar products, it comes with a lifetime warranty. If that doesn’t make this one of the best cigar lighters, then I don’t know what does.
The Colibri Daytona is one of my regular use lighters and can be seen in almost every episode of our podcast. This single flame cigar lighter was crafted to mimic the design of modern race cars, hence the name Daytona. It is incredibly easy to maintain and its single flame stays straight and true. While I was gifted a Blue camo version, the Gunmetal color is another great contender for the top cigar lighter.
Black Label Dictator
The Black Label Dictator made the top cigar lighters list for one reason… its flame. It still has a small flame change knob that requires a tool and it doesn’t have a clear fuel gauge, but that flame is awesome. It is a wide flat flame that makes you almost paint the fire onto the need of the cigar. In terms of effectiveness, this lighter’s flame is one of the best in the business. Think of it like a Lamborghini… you don’t drive it every day but when you do it is a total experience.
