FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Cigar Aficionado has named EP Carillo "Pledge" the #1 Cigar of 2020. This is HUGE! Get a box of these bad boys before they sell out here- and you can't find them anywhere else!

The EP Carrillo name has become synonymous with perfection. This is a brand that is constantly churning out award winning blends. The way things are looking, they aren’t going to stop anytime soon! Introducing the newest offering from EPC cigars; the Pledge. The Pledge is the third release in the Perez-Carrillo Series, following Encore (2018 #1 Cigar of the Year) and La Historia (2014 #2 Cigar of the Year). 

This box-pressed super cigar is made with a juicy Connecticut Habano wrapper covering an Ecuadorian binder and filler tobaccos grown in Nicaragua. If you’re a fan of dark cocoa intertwined with rich, creamy cedar and Carmel sweetness notes- you’ve got to get your hands on a box of these bad boys before they disappear.  

The Pledge describes an evolution of Ernesto's skills in blending throughout his life and how these skills translate to his promise to cigar lovers, reaching different milestones. In the first release of two sizes, one size focuses on his roots in Cuba, which contributes to tobacco being in his blood, and then the second size moves towards his core years of developing skills that led to his reaching Cigar Hall of Fame status. The evolution of his pledge will continue to be told through future size releases.
