Cigar News: First Series Unidas Release Announced as Collaboration Between United Cigars and Hammer + Sickle

April 23, 2019 (Salem NH) United Cigars announces the launch of a new collaboration series shipping in May. Series Unidas has been a work in progress for many years, the idea of a collaboration between United Cigars and other cigar brands seemed to be a natural next step after the success of their Firecracker Limited Releases. This was one that was close to their hearts and had to be the launch collaboration.

The 1st United Series Unidas was a project put into the works in early 2018, but came to an abrupt halt when Eric P. Hanson, President of Hammer + Sickle Cigars passed away. “The cigars were made and packaging idea’s discussed, but after Eric’s passing everything was put on hold.” Stated Erik Wentworth, Executive Vice President of Hammer & Sickle Cigars. Wentworth continued on by saying, “these cigars have been resting for over one year now and have aged beautifully.”

In January 2019, Erik Wentworth and Oliver Nivaud, Director of Sales & Marketing for United Cigars, continued what had started and brought the project to fruition. “To have had the chance to work with Hanson on this was reward enough, he was an incredibly talented man with the driest sense of humor.” Said Nivaud “But to see this finalized and ready for market is amazing.”

The blend was derived from Hanson’s palette of his favorite tobaccos from the Davidoff Factory in the Dominican Republic to maintain the Hammer & Sickle profile with a United Cigar kick. The boxes of 20 feature both companies’ logos and introduce a new tamper proof security measure with the zip tie. Only 300 boxes of the 6 ¾ x 46 have been made and will retail for $180/Box, $9/Cigar.
