United Cigars has announced a limited production candela/maduro barber-pole offering in its Firecracker name. The cigar has been dubbed the Irish Car Bomb Firecracker.
In addition to a Dominican Candela and Mexican San Andres Maduro for the barber-pole, the cigar features a Nicaraguan Criollo binder and Dominican Ligero, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania Broadleaf fillers. The vitola measures 3 x 50 and features the signature Firecracker long rush. The cigars are sold in five-pack bundles with a price point of $30.00. Production comes from the Magia Cubana Factory in Gurabo, Dominican Republic.
“Cigars are meant to be celebrated with friends and smiles,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars. “The rich and creamy draw on this limited release, barber pole Firecracker is perfect. So let’s raise a pint this St. Paddy’s Day and light up an Irish Car Bomb Firecracker.”
