United Cigars has announced Series Unidas, a new series that will see the distribution company partner with various brands to produce exclusive cigars.

The first in that series is the Hammer + Sickle United Cigars Series Unidas 6 3/4 x 46. As the name implies, it’s a 6 3/4 x 46 cigar from Hammer + Sickle. It’s been in the works for over a year and was worked on by Eric P. Hanson, the late founder of Hammer + Sickle.

No details about the blend have been announced, but it’s made at Oettinger Davidoff AG’s O.K. Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic.

Pricing is set at $9 per cigar and it is limited to 300 boxes of 20.

Of note, it features a zip tie on the box, which the company says is a new security measure. United Cigars has previously mentioned issues with counterfeit products for the Atabey brand, which it distributes.
