United Cigars’ Big Papi Firecracker, a cigar inspired by Major League Baseball Superstar David Ortiz, will begin to arrive at retailers by the end of this week.

The Big Papi Firecracker is produced at Tabacalera El Artista by Ram Rodriguez, who produces the Big Papi and Slugger Cigars with the David Ortiz name.

The Firecracker is a 3 1/2 x 50 that features a long fuse stemming from the cap. The series started as a concept created by David Garofalo as an exclusive to his Two Guys Smoke Shop stores. The first Firecracker was done by My Father Cigars based on the Don Pepin Original Label. Eventually, the series morphed into different manufacturers producing Firecrackers. Eventually, the series moved into Garofalo’s United Cigars distribution arm.

In addition to the Big Papi Firecracker, United Cigars will release another installment to the series, the Bandolero Firecracker later this spring.
