The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics has announced that it will be adding a quartet of new lighters to its flagship Lotus brand this year.

The headlining new product for the Lotus brand is the Citadel Flat Flame 3, which features a lightweight metal housing and wind-resistant flat flame that is guaranteed to work up to elevations of 8,000 feet.

The lighter also comes with a fold out cigar punch, visible fuel window and push-button ignition. It retails for $120 and comes in five finishes: black matte, black matte and red, black matte and blue, brushed chrome and black matte, and brushed copper and black matte. It measures 3 1/8″ x 1 3/8″ x 3/4″.

For those cigar smokers looking for a lot of firepower, particularly at higher elevations, the triple-flame Lotus Fusion could do the trick. The single-action ignition is said to work up to elevations of 12,000 feet, and it too comes with a punch cutter that folds out from the base.

The Fusion is available in four colors: black matte, matte chrome, matte gunmetal and red and black, each priced at $69.95 and measuring 3 1/8″ x 1 3/4″ x 7/8″.

The Lotus Group also has two new entries in the triple-flame torch segment that are both priced below $50. First is the Kronos, which is priced at $49.95. Its three wind resistant torch flames are fired by a single action ignition mechanism that the company says will work up to 11,000 feet.

The base of the lighter holds a 9 mm cigar punch, while the side of the lighter offers a fuel level viewing window. It measures 2 3/4″ x 1 1/4″ x 3/4″ and comes in four colors: black matte and polished chrome, brushed chrome, brushed gunmetal, and brushed copper.

The Lotus CEO offers a triple-flame torch in an all-metal housing that measures 3 1/8″ x 1 1/4″ x 7/8″. The flames are housed under a flip top lid and ignited by a large, pull-down button on the front of the unit. It also comes with a fold-out cigar punch, large flame adjuster and fuel window.

It is offered in four finishes: black matte, antique pewter, gunmetal satin, and brushed copper, each priced at $39.95.

All of the new products are expected to be on display at the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which runs July 11-14 in Las Vegas, Nev. Shipping dates have not yet been announced.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
