JR Cigar is proud to introduce Pledge by E.P. Carrillo— a phenomenal premium cigar that was awarded the #1 Cigar of 2020 with an almost perfect 98-rating! E.P. Carrillo started his long and illustrious career when he made premium cigars for the locals at his small El Credito factory in the Little Havana district of Miami. Then, in 1972 he launched the La Gloria Cubana brand , and after many years, these fantastic cigars known only to the locals, were discovered by Cigar Aficionado . The brand received a well-deserved 92- rating and soon after that E.P. Carrillo became a household name among smokers everywhere. The overwhelming popularity and demand for these La Gloria cigars had Ernesto moving into a larger facility in Santiago, Dominican Republic where he produces many of his highly rated brands today, including these remarkable Pledge by E.P. Carrillo cigars. Pledge by EP Carrillo cigars are available two stunning vitolas: the 5x 52 Prequel and the 6 x 52 Sojourn. Both sizes are expertly rolled with a unique wrapper leaf called Habano Connecticut that was cultivated exclusively for this award-winning blend. Underneath this deep brown, dark and oily crown, is the finest aged Nicaraguan long fillers held together by a tasty Ecuadorian binder. Smokers will discover a medium-to- full bodied masterpiece with highly complex notes of leather, earth, black cherry, toast, espresso, and black pepper. We are thrilled to offer our customers Pledge by EP Carrillo cigars, and you will just as thrilled when the #1 Cigar of the year arrives at your door!
