The next Firecracker will be a limited release for 2016 and as usual it will be released just before the 4th of July. This year’s production will be The CroMagnon Firecracker from RoMa Craft Tobac out of the Nica Sueno factory in Esteli Nicaragua.
The CroMagnon Firecracker will measure 3.5” x 50, using a U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro Wrapper. The filler leaf for the new CroMagnon blend was acquired from three separate growing regions in Nicaragua: Esteli, Condega and a small farm north of Esteli on the Honduran border. The blend is expected to be full bodied and full flavored. There will be just 200 boxes made with 20 Firecracker Cigars in each box all adorning the CroMagnon name.
The first Firecracker cigar was released on May 19, 2007 at a cigar rolling event at Two Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire featuring Jose Don “Pepin” Garcia. David Garofalo, owner and founder of Two Guys Smoke Shop asked Pepin to roll him a short cigar and to put a long pig tail on it. Pepin followed the direction and The Firecracker Cigar was born.
Over the years limited releases of The Firecracker Cigars were made and most commonly released near the 4th of July and made by various cigar manufacturers. Past Firecracker Cigars include Don Pepin and Tatuaje (M80) at My Fathers Cigar Factory, Jose Dominguez, Iconic Leaf, at Leyendas Cubanas and La Flor Dominicana.

Prices for the 2016 CroMagnon Firecracker are expected to be $119.99 per box of 20 ($6.99 a cigar) and available only at Two Guys Smoke Shop sometime in late June or early July.
