Bic vs Torch
So I have always been told that you should always use a torch butane lighter for your cigars, which I have always done. This has always seemed like such a no-brainier to me for the years that I have enjoyed the hobby. There has always been this idea that zippos and cheap bic lighters will affect the taste profile. I myself use a Xicar torch. However it recently occurred to me that bic lighters are fueled by butane. The same odorless, tasteless fuel in your torch. Have we been misinformed all these years? I know zippo fluid has an odor so I'm not including this, but why has this unjust stigma come about? Why have I always read and been told NEVER to use a bic? Thoughts?
