United Cigars have announced an unnamed project that was originally intended to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The cigar originally named “Dragon Slayer” was stripped and unbranded to avoid trademarking conflicts. The Mexican San Andreas wrapped cigar is said to already be shipping to retailers.
While we typically do not share un-edited press releases, occasionally they are so well-written, funny, or otherwise creative we simply share them “as is”. Such is the case for the following press release by United Cigars. Enjoy!
The saga unfolded in Tamboril as the Dragon Slayer, once poised to conquer palates with its bold flavors and captivating allure, found itself stripped of its quest. The given name had been locked in a tower and rights were taken away minutes before the cigars took flight for freedom. Imprisoned in a cage of trademark laws, United Cigars was forced to rearm its 6×54 frame by going naked.
Nameless, adrift in a sea of uncertainty, United Cigars took on the painstaking task of removing the barcodes, cellophane, bands, and all other markings of Dragon Slayer. The echoes of its lost identity reverberate through the halls, leaving behind a trail of intrigue and speculation. Fully exposing its dark Mexican San Andres wrapper, the now nameless cigar had to find a new path for its full-bodied blend of Dominican Piloto and Nicaraguan fillers embraced by a Dominican binder.
The non-named cigar, once armored with an identity, takes a bittersweet turn as it prepares to make its debut sans moniker. Amidst the turmoil, whispers abound of a phoenix-like resurgence, the non-named cigar rises from the ashes, reclaiming its rightful place among the halls of legendary cigars. Maybe a twist of fate intervened as fifteen unbanded cigars will be packed in a complimentary Humidif Ashtray. United Cigars continues to keep cigar lovers in mind as the MSRP will be $180 or $12 per cigar in an enticing gift set. Look to your local brick and mortar for this non-named United release as they have already started shipping to merchants.
Will it emerge victorious, casting aside the shackles of its past, or will it fade into obscurity, a forgotten relic of what could have been? Only time will tell as the once mighty Dragon Slayers’ journey now continues unnamed, shrouded in mystery and uncertainty, leaving behind a tale that is as captivating as it is tragic.
