Today Crux Cigars announced an exclusive for Famous Smoke Shop, Union Fire. The name is in reference to the Union Fire Company, a volunteer fire department in Philadelphia. It was formed in part by Benjamin Franklin in 1736 known as the “Bucket Brigade” and was the first fire department of its type in the colonies.
“When we partnered with Famous to create this blend, we wanted to link it to the history of Pennsylvania in some manner. After some research, we decided the history of the Union Fire Company was a perfect match for a new cigar line. The cigar itself is a rich and smokey blend of Nicaragua tobacco,” said Crux Cigars President Jeff Haugen.
The Union Fire comes in boxes of 10 cigars in three sizes: Robusto 4.875 x 50 $ 6.99 MSRP, Toro 6 x 52 $ 7.80 MSRP, Churchill 7 x 50 $ 8.30 MSRP. They are made at the Plasencia factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
