Light a Cigar with Three Matches

Executive editor, Gordon Mott, of Cigar Aficionado shows us how to light a cigar using only 3 matches without cutting the head off or drawing. After seeing this video we were a bit curious because it was something we’ve never tried before. He says this method allows you to really taste the true flavor of the tobacco.

I like to light my cigars as quickly as possible, and this method seems to take a good 5-6 minutes, but is something worth trying at least once. Let us know your feedback once you’ve tried this method. Do you notice a difference in the taste of the tobacco? Is this something you would consider doing regularly?
