The Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner and as has been the case most years, Two Guys Smoke Shop has a special cigar just for the occasion.
That cigar is the Fratello Firecracker, a 3 1/2 x 50 petit robusto that shares a name and cap with previous releases for the New Hampshire-based retailer.
The Firecracker has been made by La Flor Dominicana, My Father, RoMa Craft Tobac and Tabacalera Leyensa Cubanas. Each version has included the name as well as a fuse cap that sees a string of tobacco run from the top of the cigar down the side, mimicking a part of an actual firecracker.
The cigar is a “ramped up version” of the regular Fratello blend, which uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers.
It is priced at $5.99 per cigar and comes in boxes of 20. It’s described as a limited edition though the company has not specific how many have been produced.
The Fratello Firecracker is produced at Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A.
