Visol Products is bringing a new triple torch lighter to the Tobacco Plus Expo, as the company has announced the Saddle, which comes with a built-in cigar rest and punch.

The lighter measures 3.9 x 1 x 1 inches and weighs approximately 4.5 ounces, according to a press release from the company. It features a rounded body shape to aid in comfort while in use, while its wide, flat base allows it to stand freely on a table or desk, which sets the base for the curved lid to hold your cigar when another spot is not available.

That base is also home to a retractable punch cutter, while the front of the lighter’s cylindrical body features a small fuel window. As for the ignition, it’s  a pull-down mechanism with a metal piping activating lever.

The lighter is available in six colors, all with an MSRP of $30, though it will be a few months before they end up on store shelves. Gaurang Patel of Visol told halfwheel that he expects they will be at retail in about three months, meaning the end of April or early May.

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.
