United Cigars is teaming up with Christian Eiroa and Tom Lazuka of Asylum Cigars to launch a new baseball themed line called the Stadium Series. The first in this series is the Green Monstah, paying homage to the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park. This first batch will ship in time for opening day.
The Green Monstah boxes will replicate the iconic scoreboard in Fenway Park and the cigars will come in two sizes: typical of Asylum cigars: 6 x 60 ($8.88) and 7 x 70 ($9.99). The blend uses an Ecuadorian candela wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Esteli and Jalapa. Only 250 boxes of Green Monstah will be sold and each box contains 9 cigars, one for each inning. . The boxes also resemble home plate in shape. The Green Monstah ships March 22nd.
The sounds at the ballpark have always been a part of my Spring. Now we have an Asylum cigar to smoke for opening day. Fenway Park is my Holy Cathedral, but we have a few more stadiums in mind for this stadium series.

This was an exciting project as both Christian and I are huge baseball fans. We worked hard to have a candela in a large format, turned out to be an amazing cigar that has filled a few of my ashtrays.
