 Connecticut Havana-Seed, Connecticut Habano, Connecticut Habano USA, E.P. Carrillo, E.P. Carrillo Cigars, Nicaragua, Pledge Cogar, Prequel Cigar, Robusto This was my first time with this E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel (Robusto) by E.P. Carrillo Cigars and Wow, this is quite the departure from what I was expecting as the evolution of one of my other favorite E.P. Carrillo cigars… This one is definitely a Full-Bodied award-winner!

Deep rich and smooth dark cocoa and leather come to me at my first few puffs through a decent draw delivering satisfying smoke with a pepper spice on the retrohale.

I just discovered that the rare Connecticut Habano (USA) wrapper on this beauty is also used on some other hard-to-find Premium Cigars… hmmm, I should be on the lookout for these… just sayin’

I like what I had today… I can’t wait to blaze it again soon!
