United Cigars Ignites the Summer with the Black Bomb Firecracker

June 20, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



This summer, United Cigars proudly introduces the Black Bomb Firecracker with an enhanced blend, and new twenty-five count box format. The United Firecracker was 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. Now, the Black Bomb Firecracker adds even more gunpowder to the blueprint. Using a rich Mexican San Andres wrapper over a Sumatra binder, and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, the Black Bomb combines explosive flavors with unrivaled intensity.

Along with enhancing the Black Bomb Firecracker blend, the brand will now be presented in striking 25 count box packaging in line with the United Firecracker design. The traditional Firecracker Americana color scheme has been replaced with a striking black and gold finish, that acts as either a warning or welcoming sign for those consumers bold enough to ignite the Black Bomb Firecracker.

“At United Cigars, we pride ourselves on our ability to push the boundaries of innovation in the Firecracker line while staying true to the essence of cigar craftsmanship,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations. “We are excited to introduce the Black Bomb Firecracker to consumers who seek intensity and unparalleled flavors.”
