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.
Good value in a mild cigar, very consistent, well built an good draw.

The perfect cigar for those wanting a mild smoke, great flavor at a very reasonable price. I have tried and continue to try others hoping to find something which compares but I keep coming back to La Unica.

The best value and taste is found in these bundled cigars. La Unica has the CT outer wrapper and a great broad leaf inner. I have been enjoying these cigars since they were sent wrapped and not in boxes like they are now. Don't under estimate these 50 ringed beauties!
