The most fundamental part of enjoying a cigar is properly lighting it. To properly light a cigar, you need clippers that are specially made to snip the edge off of the end you're going to put in your mouth, the head. After doing this, you can light the cigar, but not with just any old lighter. Cigars should be lit with a wood match, preferably a cedar one. Cigarette lighters leave a unsavory odor and taste on the foot of a cigar that might stick around and ruin the experience.
