Lotus Ave Maria Lighter Review

Lotus Ave Maria Single Torch Cigar Lighter
Lotus Ave Maria Single Torch Cigar Lighter Review
Lotus makes a wide range of cigar lighters, today CLR will be reviewing the Ave Maria Single Torch lighter. Aesthetically, the Ave Maria stands alone from the majority of cigar lighters on the market, with the body of the lighter being wrapped in a deep brown leather inlay. The leather depicts a warrior, equipped with a sword and shield. A nice weight to the lighter adds to the sense of a quality construction. Complimenting the soft leather are brushed stainless steel finishes on the top and bottom. CLR favorite feature in a any lighter is a single action to ignition. A single thumb action slides the top off to the side, revealing a single jet flame for your all your cigar roasting needs.

  There is a nice size fuel adjustment wheel located on the bottom of the Ave Maria. This is where the only gripe comes into play, the wheel is plastic. With everything else about the Ave Maria feeling like quality, this cost cutting oversight is a disappointment. The lighter is also lacking a fuel gauge viewing window. Lastly, the "Lotus" name is nicely engraved vertically into the head of the lighter. The Ave Maria Torch Lighter is easily found for quite a bargain on the internet, which translates to decent a value on this single jet flame lighter.

Pros - leather inlay, single thumb action
Consideration - cheap plastic fuel wheel, no fuel gauge window
MSRP: $49.99


I have this lighter. Bought it from CI, it works okay, but you do have to click it a lot for it to finally ignite. I've kept up with the maintenance but it has done it since day one.
