I recently bought a new lighter, or should I say my first lighter, because once in a while I like a good Cigar and when I have one I am sick of lighting it with a Tiki Torch.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I went to Thompson Cigar (www.thompsoncigar.com) and I found a very nice looking lighter on clearance for half price.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Seeing as I only smoke a couple of times a month, I did not want to spend a ton of money on a lighter, but I did want something that might last.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I purchased a Lotus Dual Torch silver lighter.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Here is everything it says about the lighter on the web site as well as a photo.
The Lotus lighter’s high points
- Sporty European design
- Double torch flame
- Large flame adjuster
- Fuel level window
- Large tank capacity
- Electronic quartz ignition
- Chrome satin & polished chrome finish
I love it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I have only used it a couple of times but the dual flames work outdoors and in a bit of wind as well.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The top flips open a bifold door and the flames shoot out with a wonderful butane hiss.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It lights a cigar quickly.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is also elegant.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It looks like a lighter Sam Spade would have pulled out to light a dames smoke in some black and white movie.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is wonderful.
Final thoughts on my new LotusÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â lighter
I think if you need or want a lighter if you pay a few bucks for one you will be happy.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I would look for a dual or triple flame because you will want to have something that lights with a little wind blowing.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If you want something classy, a LotusÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â sure in the hell beats a Bic.
