A sultry Habano Connecticut wrapper holds an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers giving this Santiago, Dominican Republic produced cigar a bit of something special. Boasting full flavors but medium to full body, the peanut, espresso beans, earth, bread, leather and cedar cause a complex blending of flavors on a long finish.
Recently taking the coveted #1 Cigar of 2020 award with a nearly never heard of 98-rating stating “…E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel is a delicious smoke that delivers flavor in bold, zesty parcels of spicy oak, licorice, black cherry and black pepper. Baking spices sing like a holiday chorus, and when you think you’ve tasted all the cigar has to offer, a warm, familiar note of baked apple settles across the palate.”
