The controversial United Cigars Irish Car Bomb Firecracker cigar is here to light up your conversations on Saint Patrick’s Day!
For those of us in the States, an Irish car bomb has always been a bit of barroom gallows humor and a way to get drunk super fast. But over in Ireland, this isn’t a drink you should EVER order. It’s a reference to the bombings that were common during the time of the Troubles. It was a bloody, multi-decade conflict between Northern Irish who wished to remain part of the UK and nationalists who wanted to create a fully unified Ireland.
Irish folks have likened ordering a car bomb to ordering something like a “Twin Towers” in a bar in America.
But humor is a strange thing, and so for those of you with a twisted sense of humor, we present the United Cigars Irish Car Bomb Firecracker cigar.
To be fair, it’s a hell of a blend in a very interesting package. It’s a compact 3 x 50 Petit Robusto – perfect for short sessions. Really, it’s a nub cigar, so think of it in that category.
You’ll notice the shape right off the bat. This thing is raggedy and papery, just like a firecracker. It has a shaggy foot, which means the wrapper leaf doesn’t go all the way to the end of the cigar. Instead, you can toast up the Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pennsylvanian filler tobacco to enjoy it alone first. It’s a great way to learn more about how blending works and what a wrapper really adds to a stogie.
At the head of the United Cigars Irish Car Bomb Firecracker cigar, it’s a different story. This thing has a wick! But you don’t light it. You light the other end at the foot. The twisted wick you clip off when you make your cut to get ready for smoking. There are no explosions, but there’ll be plenty of smoke thanks to a dynamite combo of wrapper leaves.
This is a barber pole-style wrapper with green Dominican candela swirling around dark Mexican San Andrés Maduro tobacco. The rollers down at the Magia Cubana Factory in Gurabo, Dominican Republic definitely had their hands full when the order came down for this one. And the resulting flavor is quite complex. The Irish Car Bomb is all over the place, with a core of rich, creamy coffee and cocoa. With that, you’ll taste cocoa, dried apricot, nutmeg, and more.
Buckle up, this one will send you sky-high.

Smoke Your Irish Car Bomb with a Bang!
I love great cigars, and this one is great! The name cracks me up—I live around a lot of Irish people and I’m English descent so the humor’s there—I defused the cigar on my porch and a great time was had by all! I look to getting more cigars in the future. Best wishes! Really—the cigars AND the sense of humor—more fun than soccer riots! Unless you smoke THESE cigars DURING a soccer riot! Ssshhhh! Tell no-one!
