May 15, 2013 (Louisville, Ky.) — Ted’s Cigars, a leading manufacturer of premium branded cigars announces a collaboration with Duck Commander, the company that produces duck calls featured in the hit A&E series Duck Dynasty. The packaging of the officially licensed “Duck Commander Cigar” features members of the Robertson clan and the company’s signature logo. The cigar itself is handcrafted in Dominican Republic.

Millions of viewers have made Duck Dynasty a blockbuster reality show hit. Yet, the family’s success began with patriarch’s Phil Robertson’s original duck call. After patenting the call in 1972, he built what is today an empire of Duck Commander hunting products headquartered in West Monroe, Louisiana.

The launch of the Duck Commander Cigar follows the tradition of hunting and cigars. Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and casual smokers will enjoy the cigar’s excellent blend of Ecuadorian Habano, United States Broadleaf, Dominican Piloto Cubano, Dominican Habano, and Dominican Criollo 98 tobacco.

Fortune 100 companies and worldwide brands including Maker’s Mark, Grand Marnier, Kentucky Derby, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Forty Creek Whiskey, Courvoisier, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Dale Earnhardt Sr. have all entrusted Ted’s Cigars to license their name. Indeed, Ted’s Cigars are the “go-to” guys for any brand that seeks to launch a cigar.

“This is an exciting partnership between Ted’s Cigars and Duck Commander and an excellent fit given that we are also avid hunters,” said Ted Jackson, President of Ted’s Cigars. “We share many of the same values as the boys at Duck Commander, and know enjoying a fine cigar while outdoors can make anyone ‘happy, happy, happy.”

The Duck Commander Cigar is a 6 x 50 Toro and features a mild, creamy smoke with a smooth finish. Individually sealed in a glass tube – no humidor required.

Expecting a huge demand, the cigars are available for pre-orders in singles and in boxes of 3, 10, & 25 cigars at Orders will ship at the end of May.
