This June, United Cigars will release the E.P. Carrillo Pledge Firecracker. Since 2010, UnitedCigars has collaborated annually with fellow cigar makers to release a limited edition Firecracker commemorating Independence Day.
Awarded the #1 Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2020, the E.P. Carrillo Pledge is described as a zesty, spicy, woody cigar that tantalizes the consumers palate. A cigar that has a lasting creamy finish with a rich aromatic profile. Firecracker fans are in for a truly powerful smoking experience.
“Our Pledge is a fantastic blend for the United Firecracker collaboration,” said Ernesto Perez-Carrillo of E.P. Carrillo. “We have seen the United Firecracker and their limited releases grow in the marketplace so when wefirst discussed the project, we all knew it would perfect.”
