Best butane torch lighters for cigars: a figurative & literal hot-list

Lighting a premium cigar evenly is crucial to enjoying it. One of the most consistent and reliable ways to light a cigar is with a butane lighter. Butane torch lighters — unlike matches — work in all weather conditions and provide a ton of heat to get your cigar started. Plus, the best butane lighters allow for close control, meaning you can “touch up” uneven burn lines if necessary. 


From Alec Bradley to Xikar, here are the best butane lighters to try out in 2024.

Best single flame butane torch lighters

The Tactical 1 Butane Torch Lighter: Xikar

This bad boy is loaded with extra features, starting with the lid that also functions as a cigar rest. The oversized tinted fuel window lets you know at a glance how much juice is left, and the powerful single jet flame is 25-50% wider than those produced by other single flame lighters on the market.
