United Ships E.P. Carrillo Pledge Firecracker

June 13, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

 

 

Previously revealed in January, the E.P. Carrillo Pledge Firecracker is now shipping to United Firecracker Retailers. In 2007, the Firecracker line was born. The first cigar on the market with a long piece of tobacco at the head shaped like a “wick’ or “fuse’ to capture its name; Firecracker. After a few years on the market, the limited release Firecrackers came to life as United Cigars collaborated with a new manufacturer every year to create a celebration cigar for our nation’s Independence Day. This year, United Cigars has partnered with E.P. Carrillo to create the Pledge Firecracker.

“Our Pledge is a fantastic blend for the United Firecracker collaboration,” said Ernesto Perez-Carrillo of E.P. Carrillo. “We have seen the United Firecracker and their limited releases grow in the marketplace so when we first discussed the project, we all knew it would perfect.”
