United Cigars, to celebrate this year’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities, has created the Irish Car Bomb Firecracker. Featuring a candela and Maduro barber pole design, finished with the unmistakable wick that Firecracker is known for. “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.”
Production is limited to fewer than 15,000 cigars, and the blend features a Dominican Candela/Mexican San Andres barber pole wrapper, with a candela wick. The binder is Nicauguan Criollo, and the filler leaves are Dominican Ligero, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian Broadleaf. The cigars are made in the well known 3 x 50 Firecracker vitola. Production was started late last year at the Magia Cubana Factory in Gurabo, Republica Dominicana for St. Patrick’s Day. Irish Car Bombs will be sold as 5 packs with an MSRP of $30 and ship to retailers at the end of February.
