This June, United Cigars will release another installment of its Firecracker Series, the Aganorsa Leaf Lunatic Firecracker.
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 to commemorate Independence Day. The first Firecracker was done by My Father Cigars based on the Don Pepin Original Label. The series morphed into an annual release with different manufacturers producing Firecrackers. Eventually, the series moved into Garofalo’s United Cigars distribution arm. This year, Aganorsa Leaf joins the list of manufacturers producing a Firecracker for United Cigar.
The Lunatic line is a brand under Aganorsa Leaf that has typical sizes. The Aganorsa Leaf Lunatic Firecracker features Aganorsa Leaf’s proprietary Shade Grown Corojo Maduro wrapper over a blend of Aganorsa grown Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 from Jalapa and Esteli. Production comes from Agricola Ganadera Norteña S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
In a press release, Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars stated, “The Lunatic Firecracker represents a beautiful partnership between United Cigars and Aganorsa Leaf. Let’s light up the skies this Fourth of July with the Lunatic Firecracker.”
The cigars will be packaged in 20-count boxes with pricing set at $150.00 MSRP per box. The June release will allow the Firecracker to be released in time for the Independence Day celebrations. As with most of the Firecrackers, the Aganorsa Leaf Lunatic Firecracker will be a limited release.
Terence Reilly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, added, “The Lunatic Firecracker is a true celebration of the artistry and dedication that both United Cigars and Aganorsa Leaf bring to the industry. This limited edition is a winner with its unique blend and distinctive smoking experience.”
