The 4th of July is around the corner and that can only mean one thing, it’s Firecracker season.
United Cigars has begun shipping the limited edition Bandolero Firecracker from Selected Tobacco.
In 2006, from the creative mind of David Garofalo, the Firecracker line was born. The first cigar on the market with a long piece of tobacco at the head was shaped like a ‘wick’ or ‘fuse’ to capture the name of the line; Firecracker. After a few years on the market, the limited release Firecrackers came to life as United Cigars collaborated with a new manufacturer every year to create a celebration cigar for the nation’s Independence Day.
“My partnership with United Cigars has gone beyond the distribution of my cigars,” said Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco. “This is family and I wanted to share my Bandolero blend with this beautiful vitola.”
The Bandolero Firecracker represents all that Bandolero has become known for and more. The blend for the Bandolero Firecracker is derived from the Clandestino line (Series C) that uses filler leaves from Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and undisclosed tobaccos. The filler is held together with an Ecuadorian binder and a dark Ecuadorian wrapper that is typically used on the Aventureros line (Series A). Holding true to the United Firecracker measurements, the Bandolero Firecracker comes in at 3 ½ x 50 and will be packaged in wooden boxes of 20 cigars. The bands were created specifically for this release and proudly adorn the Firecracker name.
Past Firecrackers have been produced by DPG, La Flor Dominicana, Kristoff, Foundation Cigar Company, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, Fratello, RoMaCraft, Perdomo, HVC and Big Papi cigars, in addition to the ongoing United Firecracker release.
