United Cigars flagship line has gone from Box-Pressed to a Round vitola and they have sourced different aged Dominican tobaccos to enhance the profile. The United Cigars Natural and Maduro lines were originally launched in 2010 in a box-pressed format. Over the past several years the line has evolved and been restructured at the Tabaclera Magia factory in Gurabo, Dominican Republic, in order to elevate the lines flavor and complexity. Now, United Cigars is excited to release this enhanced blend of the United Natural and Maduro lines in the traditional round shape. The updated blend will still be available in the sleek, shelf friendly 20 count boxes retailers have come to love including its star, a piece of an American flag inserted into each box in honor of our veterans, which will not change.
“I wanted to see how our United line smoked before going into the box presses,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars. “The traditional round format experience was great, so I spent the past 18 months fine tuning the blend to enhance the flavor and have a more balanced cigar.”
Blended with Dominican Broadleaf and tobaccos from the Quisqueya region of the Dominican Republic this blend sheds the profile of the past revealing a more vibrant experience. There are notes of almonds, warm dough, bakers spice and a light sweetness on the cold draw. Both blends smoke with a medium-bodied profile and show notes of espresso, leather and a sweet peppery spice.
