United Cigars Announces Rojas Elote Firecracker – Cigar News

United Cigars is adding another cigar to their holiday Firecracker collaborations lineup, this time with Rojas Cigars with the for Cinco De Mayo 2023 and the Rojas Elote Firecracker. Elote (E-Lo-Tay) is a famous Mexican dish more commonly known in the United States as Street Corn. A small flavorful snack comprised of grilled corn smothered in sauce, sprinkled cheese, and cilantro.

The first United Firecracker came out in 2007, making it 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. After a few years on the market, the limited release Firecrackers came to life as United Cigars collaborated with a new manufacturer every year to create a celebration cigar for our nation’s Independence Day. Now, United Cigars extends their holiday collaborations with the Elote Firecracker.

Noel Rojas is known as “The King of the Small Gauge Cigars” making him an ideal partner for a Firecracker collaboration. The Elote Firecracker blend uses the Street Taco Barbacoa blend.

Street Taco came about from my love for traditional Mexican street food and cigars. The Elote Firecracker is a brilliant compliment to this blend.
