As with all E.P. Carrillo cigars, this is yet another home-run! The pledge follows up the excellent and #1 Rated Encore line with a Connecticut Havana-seed wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan filler.
To help celebrate the release, Perez-Carrillo and his daughter Lissette have organized a “scavenger hunt” contest of sorts where 12 fans can win a prize kit that includes a special Pledge rosewood, 75-count humidor with a glass top (without cigars) plus a cutter and lighter. Each humidor will bear the signature of Perez-Carrillo and his daughter.
The contest works as follows: Ernesto Perez-Carrillo personally signed the underside of 12 Pledge Prequel cigar bands, which have been randomly placed on cigars that will be included in the first 1,250 boxes that will be shipping to stores later this month. If you find a cigar with the autographed band, you win!
