In commemoration of its 25th anniversary, Tampa-based retailer Cigars Direct is marking the milestone with an exclusive cigar crafted by E.P. Carrillo—the Perez-Carrillo Pledge Box-Pressed Figurado. This limited-edition cigar, measuring 6 1/2 x 56, represents the first departure from the traditional parejo shape within the Pledge line. Embodying the commitment to excellence that defines both Cigars Direct and E.P. Carrillo, this special release features the same blend as other Pledge cigars: a Habano-seed wrapper cultivated in Connecticut, an Ecuadorian binder, and fillers sourced from Nicaragua.

Priced at $25 per cigar, the Perez-Carrillo Pledge Box-Pressed Figurado is set for an initial production run of just 250 boxes, each containing 10 cigars. E.P. Carrillo expressed their honour in crafting this exclusive release for Cigars Direct, emphasizing the meticulous process involved in its creation. The tobaccos used are among the most aged in their inventory, having undergone over six months of careful aging in the company’s aging room.

The sentiment is echoed by Cigars Direct, acknowledging the indispensable role their loyal customers have played in their success over the past quarter-century. In a statement, they express profound gratitude for the trust and loyalty that form the cornerstone of their achievements. Their commitment to customer satisfaction is unwavering, and they look forward to maintaining this dedication for the next 25 years and beyond.

Anticipated to hit the shelves later this month, the Perez-Carrillo Pledge Box-Pressed Figurado is poised to become a collector’s item, symbolizing not only the longevity of Cigars Direct but also the collaborative spirit between the retailer and E.P. Carrillo in delivering exceptional, exclusive experiences to the cigar aficionado community.
