In a previous video, I reviewed the S.T. Dupont Le Grand Dancing flame lighter. I discussed how much I disliked the product for a good number of reasons. I've now replaced that lighter with the Le Grand Blue Lacquered version and this is probably the best lighter that S.T. Dupont produce.
Over the last few years, I've tried to smoke as many limited edition cigars as my bank balance could allow. Most of these were Cuban cigars from well known brands like Cohiba, Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta. Unfortunately, every single limited edition cigar I have smoked in the last few years has been a complete disappointment; until now.
One of the fundamental rules when smoking cigars is that you should never light it with a Zippo or liquid fuel lighter. The reason this rule exists is because people believe that the liquid fuel can be absorbed by the cigar and either change the aroma or ruin the flavour. I believed this rule for quite some time to until recently when I decided to test the theory.
