Brandon’s Thoughts: It's hard for me to believe Ernesto could top the success he's had with both La Historia and Encore, introduced in 2014 and 2016 - but never doubt him. The E.P Carrillo Pledge was named the number one cigar in the world by Cigar Aficionado before I even had the opportunity to smoke it. Since then I've been able to snag a few for myself and I have to admit, I'm impressed. The Pledge uses a Connecticut habano wrapper covering an Ecuadorian binder and filler tobaccos grown in Nicaragua. It starts out mild with noticeable spice, but as the intensity builds more flavors develop. It offers a strong hint of black pepper that's a little aggressive at first, but as the notes of leather, earth and dark roast coffee develop the pepper seems far well balanced. This is a cigar that I didn't pay a lot of attention to until it took the #1 spot - now I will likely add it to my rotation.
