Flavor Profile

If you’re new to smoking cigars, this exciting blend might be a great way to start your flavor journey. EP Carrillo’s Pledge Cigar brand provides a smooth and enjoyable smoking experience.

This blend creates a well-rounded, medium-to-full-bodied flavor profile. You can expect notes of chocolate, pepper, and cream. The strength of the flavors will gradually build throughout the smoking experience.

Construction and Burn

The EP Carrillo Pledge Apogee is a beautifully constructed cigar. The wrapper is smooth with minimal veins, and the burn is even, providing a slow and steady smoke.

The wrapper works with the filler and binder to provide a perfect draw. The EP Carrillo Pledge Apogee is the ideal size for an after-dinner smoke or a relaxing break during the day. This blend pairs well with coffee, bourbon, or scotch with its sweet peppery flavor.

Overall, this is an excellent cigar for anyone looking to try something new. If you’re a solidly constructed cigar with great flavor, then the EP Carrillo Pledge Apogee is worth checking out.

Pledge Cigar Brand

The EP Carrillo Pledge Cigar brand was created with the goal of providing an enjoyable smoking experience.

The first cigar, Prequel, is a Robusto that measures in at 5 x 50. It’s perfect for when you’re just getting started on your flavor journey or if you’re an experienced smoker craving a peppery, sweet cigar. The second cigar, Sojourn, is a toro that measures in at 6 x 52.

Like the two cigars above, the new Apogee consists of a Connecticut Habano wrapper, Ecuadoran binder, and Nicaraguan filler. Like the rest of the Pledge line, this Apogee is made at Perez-Carrillo’s La Alianza Factory in the Dominican Republic.

E.P. Carillo Cigars

The Perez-Carrillo family is originally from Cuba, where Ernesto Sr. was born in 1904. After getting his start as a tobacco buyer for many years, he purchased El Credito, a small cigar factory in Havana.

Now, his son shares his passion for cigars, and the family business has expanded. Now, E.P. Carrillo’s tobacco comes from all around the world, including the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Cuba.
