J.C Newman Cigar Co. Chairman Stanford Newman first approached his good friend Carlos Fuente Sr. about an idea he had in 1985. Stanford wanted to make the first affordable "Premium" cigar. At the time, La Unica was sold in bundles - an unheard-of packaging style for a "good" cigar. Even though the only cigars sold in bundles up until that time were "factory seconds", Stanford believed that cigar smokers would appreciate the value offered by a great Premium Cigar packed in a bundle, instead of boxes - if and only if Carlos and Stanford could come up with just the right cigar. Together they met the challenge - Carlos selected the shapes, Stanford approved the blend, and in 1986 La Unica Dominican Primeros were born. Using the finest Connecticut wrappers, aged Dominican fillers and binders, it is no surprise that La Unica immediately became a hit. La Unica is a well balanced rich tasting Dominican handmade cigar, skillfully crafted in the "Tabacalera A. Fuente" tradition. La Unica is available in 5 sizes in both Natural and Maduro wrappers.
Even though my order was lost for several days it finally arrived and the cigars were excellent and the price was great! Will definitely be a repeat customer.

I have been an Arturo Fuente fan since I started enjoying cigars over 30 years ago. And their La Unica brand quickly became my favorite and daily cigar a short while later. I used to purchase them in a bundle with no band for under a dollar apiece at a little shop in Phoenix. My friends and I enjoyed them regularly. Of course they got popular and they slapped a band on them and raised the price accordingly which was alright and to be expected.
Lo these many years later I ended up in Tucson, still enjoying good cigar but can not find the La Unica anywhere, thankfully I found these folks and they not only sell them at a fair price they were delivered in good shape with no delays. I ordered on a Saturday, they shipped on Monday and I was enjoying one on Thursday. I am sure others have experienced this but I have to say it was like seeing an old friend and brought back many good memories. A few days later a friend who I got started enjoying cigars years ago came over and had the same experience and its the reason we love Fuente brand cigars, they are exactly the same 30 years later.
Thanks guys, for offering this great cigar at fair price and delivery. I am happy my first internet purchase of cigars was with you guys and so positive. Thanks again and you have a new customer here.

Mild and tasty.
I do have some problems occasionally with their construction: pin holes, canoeing, etc. maybe about one cigar out of ten.

I've been smoking the La Unica natural 200's for a couple of years now. It's a mild smoke. I like it as the first smoke of the day. Mild and mellow.
Later in the day I turn to something a little stronger and more complex.
Every once in a while I get one with a pin hole or split in the wrapper, which ruins it. Not real often but often enough to bear mentioning

I have been doing business with this co. for years and always have received the best price and service.

Have been smoking these cigars for nearly 15 years on a regular basis. Great cigar for the price
By George on Oct 11, 2014
I have been smoking the cigars for 20 years. I started when they came wrapped in cellophane and now I use the empty boxes as kindling for outdoor fires. I love these cigars and wish they were fortified with vitamins so I could justify having more.

A friend put me on to this smoke a year ago and it's become my standard smoke. I'd call it medium with a nice mellow flavor and a nice draw. Not much complexity but very smooth and pleasant. This is my morning cigar and the first smoke of the day. Later in the day I will introduce a smoke with more complexity but I'm always happy to light up a La Unica natural anytime of the day.
I have occassionaly gotten one that has a pin hole in the wrapper and once had a box that seemed to come unwrapped easily but the folks at BCP happily replaced the box for me free of chage.
