United Connecticut

From United Cigar Group:

United Connecticut announced to release at the PCA Show in Las Vegas. After years of market research and development, United Cigars had broken the code to deliver a line extension that shatters the cigar industry frontier. Thinking outside the box, United Cigars found themselves with bales of Ecuador Connecticut Shade gold. As if the Merchant Royal herself rose up from her watery grave, United Cigars discovered a wrapper that had greater value than the $1 Billion lost cargo. Ecuador’s fertile soil makes it the best place to grow wrapper leaves and along the foothills of the Andes Mountains we find natural shade grown tobacco that surpasses all other shade grown wrapper to compliment the United blend. 

Using higher primings for the wrapper, United Cigars found the best wrapper to compliment the United blend of Dominican tobaccos. In particular, the use of Dominican Broadleaf in the filler opens an arena of body and complexity that the Ecuador Connecticut Shade wrapper rides alongside with for a fantastic voyage. Shipping to retailers in boxes of 20 cigars, the United Connecticut will begin reaching shelves the beginning of April

“We originally crafted the United blend around beautiful Dominican Broadleaf tobacco,” said Oliver Nivaud of United Cigars. “Working with a superior wrapper, as oily and elegant as this, only made this blend graduate to the next level.”  

Expect United Cigars to keep these cigar lover friendly prices under budget with their Robusto 5 x 54, Toro 6 x 54 and Churchill 7 x 54 ringing in at an MSRP of $7, $8 and $9 respectfully. 

United Cigars has had a busy year with recent announcements that they will also have showcased at this year’s PCA Show. Keep your palettes open for the sky illuminating Firecracker Connecticut that has built an early following. With connoisseurs and charitable foundations in mind, be sure to capture a Gold Star Limited Edition to guide you into a tactical smoke mission. If your historian persona grabs you then turn on your favorite classic and dance with the 30th Anniversary La Gianna Havana Barber Pole blend of natural and maduro wrappers. For the pinnacle of luxury in today’s market, Atabey has captured aficionados worldwide. Now, a Limited Edition Atabey Collection Set, 60 count humidor will be released for 2024 containing all twelve vitolas for a total of 360 cigars.
