Are you new to the hobby of cigar smoking and want to learn about the different ways to light your cigar?  This how-to guide will discuss them so that you can begin enjoying everything that cigars have to offer.

Since Puff.com is a site dedicated to cigars, it’s no surprise that many of its members are smoking experts.  If you fall into this aficionado category, you may see the whole topic of lighting cigars as trivial and beneath you.  While that may be true, everyone doesn’t start out as an expert, so doing something as simple as lighting a cigar may not seem that easy to a complete newbie.  That’s where this guide comes in, as it will discuss the different options for lighting a cigar in terms of smoking accessories, as well as the different methods that you can employ to light your cigars properly.

Before we begin outlining the different cigar lighting products and methods, you probably want to know why it’s so important to light your cigar properly.  While the end result we are looking for is to simply have a lit cigar, the way in which you go about doing so can affect the entire smoking experience.  The different accessories and methods you use will offer varied results.  That’s why you must choose correctly if you want to get the most out of each cigar not only in terms of its burn, but also its flavor.

Now that we have all of that out of the way, it’s time to discuss the tools and techniques you can use to light cigars.  We’ll use two main categories of lighting products, beginning with the simpler category of matches and ending with the more complex category of lighters.  As you will see, each category has its benefits, but each can also come with certain disadvantages that you’ll want to keep in mind when shopping for accessories.

0 # Need to add cedar spillsThomas Person 2013-05-22 13:47
A spill is a slender piece of wood or twisted paper, for lighting candles, lamps, campfires or fireplaces. Before more modern inventions such as lighters and chemical matchsticks, a cedar spill was the traditional method to light a cigar.

Wood of various lengths, thickness and species were torn into narrow strips and lit with whatever flame source was handy. Cigars were slowly roasted and toasted, allowing the oils and water within the tobacco leaves to slowly smolder, ignite and reveal almost immediately the full flavor and aroma of the cigar.

Regardless of what method you use to light your cigar, take your time when doing so.
