Scorch Torch Dominator Review

Scorch Torch Dominator Triple Flame
Scorch Torch Dominator Triple Flame  
  The Scorch Torch brand is LONG overdue for a review on CLR. I have no excuse as to what took me so long, really why did I wait so long?! I picked this gem up for $12.95 off of Amazon. This is the Scorch Torch Dominator and the name is fitting for this beaut!
  The Dominator is a triple torch value packed powerhouse. It's very well thought from aesthetics to function. Aesthetically, the Dominator name is appropriate, with it's aggressive design. I purchased the gunmetal version for this review as I am a sucker for gunmetal. The overall construction is fantastic at this price point, with plastic only being used for butane adjustment from what I can tell. Scorch uses a simple single action thumb depressor to ignite the triple flames. The flame comes out orange and blue, then quickly turns all blue.

  There is a nicely integrated cigar punch cutter that is actuated from a locking side lever. Even if you are not a fan of a punch cut for your cigars, it is always handy to have in a time of need. I found the butane adjustment a bit challenging if trying to use your fingers/nails. Also, noticeably missing is a fuel gauge window. Would be particularly handy considering it is a triple torch lighter. More torches equals the more quickly butane gets eaten up. Lastly, Scorch includes a velvet pouch to store the lighter. Odds of me using this? Zero. Though, still a nice added touch.

  At the end of the day it is hard to knock the Scorch Torch Dominator on any shortcomings due to the obvious value at this price point. A well designed, triple torch, with an integrated cigar punch for $12.95 hard to truly complain about.

thanks for this review. gonna grab one.

good info. love the website. did not see a review for my Xikar Enigma though

Thank you. I was debating on getting this for my first torch style lighter on Amazon. I'm a rookie with cigars so I'm sure I'll move into a more quality lighter later..
