Each tube contains 24 hand made 10 Inch long cedar spills.

Before matches, a spill was used to transfer a flame from the fire in the hearth to a candle, lamp, cigar or pipe. A true spill was not a piece of paper, a stick, or a sliver of wood, it was a specialized wood shaving, given its name from the way it “spills” from the wood plane that produces it. 

A spill's daily usefulness has long passed, but has been revived as a way of imparting a neutral flavour when lighting a cigar without the gasses or odors from the flame source. With a spill, the cigar lighting process is slowed, highlighting the nuances, character, and flavours in the cigar, bringing total fulfillment to the smoking process.

Much like hand-rolled cigars, these spills are a truly hand-made product. Each is hand-planed from select Spanish Cedar, individually inspected, and packaged in a clear tube highlighting the beauty of the wood from which it was produced.

Why use a spill to light your cigar?

- Softer flame: 500° vs 1500° - 2500° of lighters
- Less chance of scorching the tobacco
- Imparts a neutral aroma
- No Sulfur aroma of matches
- No lighter fluid aroma
- Slow the lighting process to savour initial flavours and aromas of the cigar.

How to Use

Hold the Spill a few inches in from the narrow end and light the large end

Keep the Spill level and slowly roll and toast the foot of the cigar, keeping the cigar out of the direct flame. The spill will burn for about one minute giving plenty of time to form an ember.
