United Cigars has announced their latest partner for their annual Firecracker cigar, All Saints. Saint Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland and the Feast of St. Patrick, also known as St. Patrick’s Day, is held on March 17. The Firecracker line started in 2007 when it was the first cigar on the market with a long piece of tobacco at the head shaped like a ‘wick’ or ‘fuse’ to capture its name; Firecracker. Each year, United Cigars picks a new company to make their take on the size. Firecracker cigars normally celebrate the nation’s Independence Day, but this year, United Cigars extends their holiday collaborations with the St. Patrick’s Firecracker.
“St. Patrick’s Day deserves a little extra spark and the St. Patrick’s Firecracker is the answer. This was a special collaboration that led to several factory trips and the result is a beautiful blend capturing the All Saints profile with that Firecracker kick.”

All United Firecracker collaborations are different based on the manufacturers interpretation, but this collaboration is unique with its barber pole format of a candela leaf over an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper. The same Oscuro wrapper All Saints Cigars fans will recognize from their St. Francis blend. The blend uses an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper, and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It comes in boxes of 20 with each cigar retailing for $8.00. The cigars are rolled at Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A. Production this year is limited to 300 boxes, or 6,000 cigars.
“We’ve worked extremely hard over the years to offer a unique perspective on blends for our Firecrackers,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars. “Celebrating any holiday with a Firecracker is a great start.”
The St. Patrick’s Firecracker will be released at TPE 2023 in Las Vegas February 22-24. These 300 boxes will be designated to United Firecracker Retailers.
