United Cigars launched the Firecracker fifteen years ago, yet it remains as fresh as ever. The cigar gets updated frequently through partnerships with other brands. The 2021 Firecracker short robusto wears a new red, white, and blue patriotic band, along with a tail resembling a fuse. I drew in earthy notes on the cold draw. Initial puffs brought rustic campfire notes, unrefined and a bit harsh. The second third saw a return of earth, trailed by rich dark roast coffee. Retrohales filled with black pepper kept things mildly interesting, given the straightforward flavor profile.
