Toasting the foot ?

How many of you toast the foot of a cigar before lighting it ? I do most of the time on good cigars, but I'm not sure it improves anything.
Cigars to ashes, ashes to dust,
No matter the cost, smoke we must.

Any time you smoke a cigar, take some time to warm it up and get happy before you start. That process will lessen the chances of scorching it before it is properly lit. Cigars are a hand made product, someone went to a lot of work for you to smoke them, so show them and their creators some respect as you enjoy them.

I agree, Gordon.

I always toast the foot before lighting. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, I just do it. I also know that I fill up lighters with butane often.

Yup, toast the foot and then blow out to make sure the fluid taste doesn't come back into the cigar. Does it make a difference? Not sure, but can't hurt.

I always toast the foot, I don't know if it actually helps but that is the way I was taught so its just automatic now.
