United Cigars Salutes Military Families

United Cigars Announces Launch of Gold Star Limited Edition at PCA in Las Vegas

Hudson, NH – United Cigars is excited to unveil the Gold Star Limited Edition line, set to debut at this year’s PCA event in Las Vegas. Crafted in the Dominican Republic at the prestigious Tabacalera William Ventura Cigar Factory, the Gold Star Limited Edition stands as a tribute to the valor of our nation’s military families, underscoring United Cigars’ commitment to honoring their sacrifice.

This exclusive release features a single vitola, measuring 6 inches by 54, and is presented in boxes of 20, with a total of 4,000 cigars available. This initiative not only celebrates the unwavering dedication of the Navy Seals but also aims to amplify awareness and support for the families of fallen heroes. In a special gesture, 200 numbered boxes have been produced, with 25 featuring signatures from both active and retired Navy Seals. These signed boxes are destined for charitable auctions to benefit the Navy Seal Museum Trident House Charities and Swim With A Mission (SWAM.org), promising to draw interest from cigar enthusiasts, collectors, and military charity supporters alike.

Jeff Hiatt, a board member, expressed his pride in United Cigars’ patriotic efforts, stating, “We are honored to be included in the launch of the Gold Star brand. United Cigar’s dedication is truly evident, as they actively contribute to honoring our heroes.”

The Gold Star cigar is distinguished by its rich blend, featuring a Habano 2000 Intermedio wrapper, Sumatra binder, and fillers from Connecticut Broad Leaf and the Dominican Republic. This blend delivers a complex and full-bodied smoking experience that resonates with the strength and courage of the entities it supports.

Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars, shared his enthusiasm about the project, “The Gold Star limited edition embodies our passion and commitment. It’s more than a cigar; it’s a symbol of our dedication to supporting those who have sacrificed for our country.”

Priced at $400 per box of 20, or $20 per cigar, the Gold Star limited edition will be available at the 2024 PCA, with shipping expected to commence at the end of March.
