E.P. Carrillo and United Cigars Announce Pledge Firecracker – Cigar News

This June, United Cigars will release the E.P. Carrillo Pledge Firecracker. Beginning in 2010, United
Cigars has collaborated every year with a different cigar manufacturer to create a limited edition Firecracker cigar commemorating Independence Day. The Firecracker cigars have been a short, fat, and strong cigar historically.

Our Pledge is a fantastic blend for the United Firecracker collaboration. We have seen the United Firecracker and their limited releases grow in the marketplace so when we first discussed the project, we all knew it would perfect.

The E.P. Carrillo Pledge Firecracker is rolled at Carrillo’s Dominican Factory, Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. The blend uses a U.S.A. Connecticut Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. The size measures 3 ½ x 50 and comes in boxes of 20. Each cigar will have a retail cost of $7.00.

The wrapper draws you in immediately and once you light up you know you’re in for a ride. We are honored to work with a legend in our industry, and to have this blend represented in our Firecracker format. Let’s Light Up The Skies!
