LA UNICA

Since 1986, La Unica cigars have been offering an outstanding premium cigar value unparalleled in the industry.

As with many classics, La Unica Dominican Primeros came from humble beginnings. More than twenty years ago, before the cigar boom, J.C. Newman Cigar Company patriarch Stanford J. Newman, challenged his good friend Carlos Fuente, Sr. with an idea that had never been tried in the cigar industry – to develop a rich, flavorful, superb-tasting premium cigar and package it in an inexpensive cellophane bundle, without costly boxes and trimmings found with other premium cigars. Until that time, factories only packaged their “seconds” in bundles.

Carlos selected the sizes and Stanford approved the blend – a combination of Cuban seed Dominican long filler tobaccos specially aged for maximum flavor and smoothness. When skillfully hand-rolled with a delicate Connecticut shade (light natural) wrapper or a dark rich (maduro) Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Carlos fulfilled Stanford’s vision. Within six months La Unica became the #1 selling premium bundle cigar in America.

Today La Unica – with the original 1986 blend and smooth rich flavor – preserves the history of the brand. These superb cigars have now grown up from their bundle days and are elegantly packaged in custom cedar cabinets of 20. Despite the maturity of the packaging, we have not strayed from our roots and the original hand selected, perfectly aged blend of tobaccos that make La Unica a favorite. Imagine a velvety, sultry beginning with hints of sweetness and fruit. As each perfectly blended leaf burns, the complexities of fine Dominican filler in La Unica blossom into a nutty, creamy, rich flavor. La Unica cigars are smooth enough for every day but far from ordinary. Handmade by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic, La Unica continues to be one of the finest cigars on the market.
