The next cigar in Two Guys Smoke Shop’s Firecracker series will be from HVC.

This November, the HVC Black Friday Firecracker will begin shipping to stores. The 3 1/2 x 50 vitola features an extended pigtail made to mimic the fuse of a firecracker. It uses an Ecuadorian habano café wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan corojo 99 and criollo 98 fillers.

It will be priced at $7.50 per cigar and limited to 500 boxes of 20 cigars.

The Firecracker Series started in 2007 with the launch of the Don Pepin Garcia Blue Label as an exclusive for Two Guys Smoke Shop. Each cigar in the series has been a small parejo with a long pigtail. Since then there have been releases from  Tatuaje, Fratello, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, Kristoff, La Flor DominicanaRoMa Craft Tobac and Perdomo.

Like the most recent release from Perdomo, this release will be sold through United Cigars, which has the same owner as Two Guys, meaning that it will be available at stores nationwide.

“I smoked the United Firecracker and had the perfect blend in mind that was perfect for this unique vitola,” said Reinier Lorenzo, founder of HVC, in a press release.

This will be the sixth release of the HVC Black Friday, which is typically released in November before the post-Thanksgiving shopping holiday.
