The United Cigars Limited-Edition Cigar Bar has returned! This year’s Fall forward release is a special 3 pack from Rocky Patel. The 2nd Cigar Bar release from United, this year’s project commemorates the 25th Anniversary of Rocky Patel cigars. The Cigar Bar is considered a part of the Series Unidas collection and the current plan is to keep releasing new bars every year. The 6,000 Rocky Patel Cigar Bars being shipped out over the next week showcase three distinct and well known blends from the RP portfolio.
The original kernel of an idea at the core of the United Cigar Bar was to offer consumers a unique box-pressed cigar. The concept would evolve and grow to include well-established brands, selecting popular round blends and producing box pressed expressions of them. The 2021 Cigar Bar was a BP variant of the Aladino Corojo which gave cigar heads a chance to try one of their favorite cigars in a different format.
Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars, says “this was an eye-opening project. The decision became too difficult to narrow down the best box-pressed representation, so we used all three blends.” Nish Patel, Executive Vice President of Rocky Cigars, shared that “this Silver Cigar Bar is something special, three of our lines that have never been box-pressed before.”
Edge Corojo: Wrapper: Corojo / Binder: Nicaraguan ? Filler: Honduran & Nicaraguan
Vintage 2003: Wrapper: Cameroon / Binder: Nicaraguan / Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan
Sun Grown: Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra / Binder: Nicaraguan / Filler: Nicaraguan & Dominican
