E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel – Cigar of The Year 2020
E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel is one of the most highly-anticipated and sought-after cigars to ever bear the E.P. Carrillo name. The third installment in the celebrated and decorated Perez-Carrillo series following La Historia and Encore, Pledge is said to be the crowning achievement of the man deemed “The Godfather of Boutique Cigars,” Ernesto Perez-Carrillo.
Rolled only by the most seasoned torcedors at Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic, Pledge contains ultra-premium tobaccos from 3 different countries. The filler blend is Nicaraguan, the binder from Ecuador, and the dark, oily wrapper is a unique Connecticut Habano leaf grown right in the USA.
Its predecessors were both impeccable specimens—La Historia earned a 95 rating and was named the No. 2 cigar of 2014. Encore got an even better 96, earning the No. 1 spot in 2018. That being said, Pledge had some big shoes to fill. In 2020, the year of its release, Pledge did just that, earning a historic 98 rating and easily strolled to the No. 1 spot in the year’s top 25.
