Do you know the right way to light a cigar? Is there a right way? We all have different methods, but Stogie Geeks can tell you how to achieve the best smoke just by lighting a cigar properly.

You start with a single-flame lighter, bring the tip of the cigar right above the flame and not in the flame (after it has been cut, of course), and gently rotate the cigar without actually burning it. You must keep a constant rotation, or else one side may get too much heat. Each cigar will take a different amount of time to fully light, depending on the size. For instance, a Macanudo Cafe will take longer than a Montecristo No. 3.

Here is a great video on how to properly light a cigar, compliments of Stogie Geeks. Enjoy!
