A little more patience is also required when lighting a Torpedo or a Pyramid-shaped cigar. Because the shape of a Torpedo tapers at the head, the draw will be tighter. Gently toast the foot of the cigar over the flame, but when you draw on it, you may have to pull more aggressively during the first few puffs.
Torpedo-shaped cigars generally cost more because they are more complicated to roll. The tighter draw they offer delivers a greater concentration of flavor and heat directly onto your palate, which increases a cigar’s intensity. Although the draw is tighter, you should still be able puff without obstruction and achieve an even burn.
