United Cigars Announces St. Patrick’s Day Firecracker with All Saints

February 14, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

 

 

St. Patrick’s Day is going to have a spark this year with the introduction of the St. Patrick’s Firecracker collaboration with All Saints Cigars at TPE 2023. Saint Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland and the Feast of St. Patrick, also known as St. Patrick’s Day, is held on March 17. United Cigars could not think of a better way to salute this year’s festivities than a commemorative United Firecracker collaboration with All Saints Cigars.

In 2007, the Firecracker line was born. The first cigar on the market with a long piece of tobacco at the head shaped like a ‘wick”or ‘fuse”to capture its name; 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. Now, United Cigars extends their holiday collaborations with the St. Patrick’s Firecracker.

St. Patrick’s Firecracker

  • Origin: Nicaraguan

  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian Oscuro

  • Binder: Nicaraguan

  • Filler: Nicaraguan

  • Box Count: 20 Cigars

  • MSRP: $8.00 Single/$160 Box of 20 Production: 300 Boxes – 6000 Cigars

  • Factory: Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A

All Saints Cigars Founder Micky Pegg said, “St. Patrick’s Day deserves a little extra spark and the St. Patrick’s Firecracker is the answer. This was a special collaboration that led to several factory trips and the result is a beautiful blend capturing the All Saints profile with that Firecracker kick.”

All United Firecracker collaborations are different based on the manufacturer’s interpretation, but this collaboration is unique with its barber pole format of a candela leaf over an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper. The same Oscuro wrapper All Saints Cigars fans will recognize from their St. Francis blend.

“We’ve worked extremely hard over the years to offer a unique perspective on blends for our Firecrackers,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars. “Celebrating any holiday with a Firecracker is a great start.”

The St. Patrick’s Firecracker will be released at TPE 2023 in Las Vegas February 22-24. With a production limited to 6,000 cigars, these 300 boxes will be designated to United Firecracker Retailers. Retailers should contact their local sales representative to learn how to become eligible for United Firecracker collaborations and other limited releases.
