The E.P. Carrillo Trilogy box set contains three Top 25 cigars, two of which have been Cigar of the Year. From left to right: the Pledge Prequel, Encore Majestic and La Historia E-III.

For those still searching for Cigar Aficionado’s No. 1 Cigar of 2020—or the other two E.P. Carrillo smokes that have performed splendidly on previous Top 25 lists—a special box set has begun shipping this week.

The E.P. Carrillo Trilogy sampler is a flight of three cigars, two of which have been named Cigar of the Year. The box set contains the Pledge Prequel (No. 1 Cigar of 2020), the Encore Majestic (No. 1 Cigar of 2018) and the La Historia E-III (No. 2 Cigar of 2014).

The Trilogy set has a suggested retail price of $36.

Lissette Perez-Carrillo, daughter of brand owner Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, stated that due to high customer demand for these three particular cigars, the company decided to combine them into a three-pack for better consumer accessibility. Cigars that win the Cigar of the Year accolade tend to be sold out on perpetual backorder.

All three cigars in the set were made at Perez-Carrillo’s La Alianza factory in the Dominican Republic.

This week’s first shipment was limited to only 100 boxes but 1,000 more are scheduled to ship in two weeks. By June another 4,000 boxes are expected to reach retailers.
