E.P. Carrillo’s newest line, Allegiance, is on its way to stores.

The new line will be distinctive on store shelves due to its green boxes and bands, while the blend of the cigar features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler. It is available in four sizes:

  • Perez-Carrillo Allegiance Sidekick (5 x 50) — $12 (Box of 20, $240)
  • Perez-Carrillo Allegiance Confidant (6 x 52) — $13.10 (Box of 20, $262)
  • Perez-Carrillo Allegiance Wingman Corona (6 7/8 x 54) — $13.50 (Box of 20, $270)
  • Perez-Carrillo Allegiance Chaperone (6 1/4 x 58) — $14 (Box of 20, $280)

All four sizes are offered in 20-count boxes and are produced for E.P. Carrillo by Oliva Cigar Co. at its TABOLISA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

As part of the launch, the inside lids of 50 boxes have been autographed by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr., with the people finding the autographed boxes winning an ashtray from E.P. Carrillo.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
