Cigar News: E.P. Carrillo Cigars Releasing Pledge Of Allegiance 2023 Cigar
A Special Limited Edition Cigar Inspired By The American Dream
MIAMI, FL – E.P. Carrillo Cigars has announced the release of their newest creation—the E.P. Carrillo Pledge of Allegiance 2023 cigar of which 1,776 boxes will soon be on their way to cigar retailers. This special limited edition release represents the culmination of E.P.C.’s dedication to excellence and serves as a tribute to America’s indomitable spirit.
The idea for Pledge of Allegiance was inspired by “the American Dream” and the journey of E.P.C. founder, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo from his native Cuba to the United States at the age of seven. Therefore, Pledge of Allegiance 2023 represents more than just a unique blend of tobacco; it’s a testament to resilience, passion, and perseverance. Additionally, it’s a tribute to the pursuit of dreams embodied in Ernesto’s incredible journey to the U.S. where he built one of the world’s most respected cigar brands from scratch.
“Pledge of Allegiance 2023 is not just a cigar. It’s a representation of the American Dream that I had the privilege to live,” said Ernesto. “This special blend has been crafted with a vision – to create a smoke that honors the journey every American born in the USA, or immigrant, has taken or is still on.”
The 6”x54 box-pressed vitola boasts a U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian Connecticut binder and a blend of U.S., Nicaraguan, and Dominican grown fillers. The smoke issues a medium to full-bodied smoke that begins with hints of sweet spice, then evolves into rich notes of cocoa, earth, and a subtle hint of leather. The complexity and balance of flavors symbolize the rich diversity and unity of the nation it honors.
The E.P.C. Pledge of Allegiance 2023 cigar is presented in an elegant 10-count box that features an American flag motif, adding an extra layer of significance to this tribute to America. The secondary band is similar to the bands found on La Historia, Encore, Pledge, and Allegiance, E.P.C.’s biggest sellers. The band’s colors were chosen to emphasize the American color theme. Shipping in mid to late June, the per-cigar price will be $20 MSRP.

Added Ernesto, “Embrace the heritage, taste the resilience – this is what Pledge of Allegiance 2023 stands for.” CA
