Bandolero Firecracker Short Robusto
This Bandolero Firecracker Short Robusto Gordo cigar is made in Costa Rica. Outside, you'll find an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Inside, the binder is Ecuadorian, and the filler is Dominican, Nicaraguan. This is a Short Robusto Gordo cigar with a length of 3.50 and a ring gauge of 50.
We can almost smell those 4th of July hot dogs and beers mingling with the smell of firecracker smoke wafting through the air.
Bandolero Firecracker cigars join in the fun of a stogie size that’s taken on a life of its own. Since it was first released by United Cigars and José “Don Pepin” Garcia (of My Father Cigars fame), it took off like a Roman candle, shooting into the night sky. After the original release, several other brands have stuffed their explosive blends into the tight 3.5 x 50 format.
Perdomo, Foundation… eventually, this roll will pull in any brand that wants to have an exciting time in the summer.
Bandolero is no stranger to blowing things up. The brand name means “bandit” or “outlaw” in English and pays homage to the cigar bootleggers of yesteryear. They defied colonial authorities who required people in the Americas to buy cigars from Europe. As anyone knows, the people of the western hemisphere don’t play that s**t. We'll find our way if you try to ban us from making purchases. And so Bandolero is a nod to the people who kept folks smoking homegrown even when it was illegal.
Bandolero Firecracker cigars pull from a couple of existing blends in the company portfolio. The long-filler tobaccos are Dominican and Nicaraguan, primarily. This is similar to the Series C Clandestino blend. The binder is Ecuadorian, as is the Maduro wrapper that fans will recognize from its place of honor on the Series A Aventureros cigars.
The flavors of the smoke are a blast, for real. This isn’t a gimmick cigar – it’s a flavorful blend. There’s red pepper, plenty of nuts, and even chocolate fudge. It won’t take long to enjoy, and it might even leave you wanting more. But these stogies are meant to be enjoyed relatively quickly compared to other sticks, getting you back to whatever activity you’ve lined up.
One beer, one short smoke, and then return to the action. Vamonos!
