The E.P. Carrillo Allegiance, the fourth installment of the Perez-Carillo Family Series is now heading to stores.
Allegiance was launched at the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show. At the time, the final packaging and banding had not been announced. Last month, the final packaging was shown off as the bands of the Perez-Carrillo line were tweaked.
What’s unique about the Allegiance is this is the first E.P. Carrillo branded cigar to not be produced at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr‘s Tabacalera La Alianza. While blends by Perez-Carrillo, Allegiance is being produced at Oliva’s TABIOSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. This is the second project that E.P. Carrillo and Oliva are doing together for 2022. Oliva Cigar is also launching the Cuba Aliados by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.
The blend features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over all Nicaraguan binder and filler. The vitolas also have size names finalized: Sidekick (5 x 50), Confidant (6 x 62), Wingman(6 7/8 x 54), and Chaperone (6 1/4 x 58). Each are packaged in 20-count boxes.
Sidekick (a robusto measuring 5 inches long by 50 ring gauge; $12), Confidant (a 6 by 52 toro, $13.10), Wingman (6 7/8 inches long by 54, $13.50) and a hefty cigar called Chaperone measuring 6 1/4 by 58, which retails for $14. Pricing is set between $12.00-$14.00
