Experience: Porsche Design P'3635 Lighter. Our Fellow Cigar Smoking Companion.

After our recent post on the Cohiba Maduro 5 Mágicos, we received questions from our readers regarding the lighter that was used. Therefore, we decided to put together this post to tell you everything about it.

If you are a regular reader of our website, you are definitely someone that appreciates sleek design and the finer things. This Porsche Design P'3635 torch lighter has been with us for a while now and has been a very reliable companion when smoking some of the finest Habanos and other non-Cuban cigars along our journey enjoying the good life. This lighter is part of the P'3600 Porsche Design smoking accessories line.

While we know that many of you are purists when it comes to lighting up your cigars and you would never use anything other than a box of wooden matches, it is now proven that using a jet flame lighter like this one will not ruin your cigars or affect their 'bouquet' at all.

This sleek and modern Porsche Design P'3635 lighter is thin, compact, elegant, lightweight and quite a conversation piece. We decided to feature it along with this wonderful Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph ref. 102337 reviewed here because this watch is sleek and advanced in design just like the lighter.

The Porsche Design P'3635 features a very reliable patented circular flame jet that will work very well even in the windiest conditions —just like the ones we have here in the 'Windy City'.

The lighter is composed of two panels connected with four hexagonal screws that house the modern quartz piezo ignition mechanism and the trogamid tank and is also fitted with a small fuel level window on its profile. The lighter holds up to 1.0 ml of butane gas. One thing that we also love about this lighter is that the fold away cover on the ignition button has a beautiful 'tapisserie' pattern that reminds us of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak dials. I guess we can't stop thinking about watches for a minute.

Of all lighters we've used in the past including Dunhill and S.T. Dupont, this Porsche Design is one of our favorites due to its understated look and sleek appearance. It also available in a variety of colors and finishes including bog oak wood, gray, silver pearl, black, navy blue and titan.
