Two Collaborations, Two New Releases

Ernesto Pérez Carrillo presents Allegiance and Inch Nicaragua, two new tobaccos that are the result of his collaboration with Oliva and Plasencia.

When a great and renowned tobacco master like Ernesto Pérez Carrillo joins his knowledge of tobacco with two great Nicaraguan brands, only good and interesting things can come out. EP Carrillo has presented his two brand new  creation in the Intertabac 2022 show. They are the result, precisely, of two external collaborations.

Fort he first one, Pérez Carrillo has worked with the Nicaraguan brand Oliva, for a new limited edition, but with vocation for continuity: EP Carrillo Allegiance. There are only 7.500 boxes of ten cigars for the whole world (two thirds of this will remain in the US market), nut the good news is they promise to repeat the edition in the be coming years. For its creation, Allegiance uses the same Sumatran Ecuador wrapper that Oliva uses for its Melanio line, with Nicaraguan binder and filler, in a 6 ¼ x 50 (158 mm x 50) box pressed format.

The second cigar is the result of another successful collaboration. Ernesto Pérez Carrillo has sought out the Plasencia family to renew the Inch brand with a new version from Nicaragua. The new Inch Series 60 is a one hundred percent Nicaraguan tobacco, with a dark red wrapper and a 5 7/8 x 60 (150 mm x 60) format.

This is an area in which he tirelessly tries to educate himself. Javier started smoking and writing about cigars in 1998, initially for the Spanish magazines La boutique del fumador and La cava de cigarros, and later, as chief press officer at La Aurora, the oldest tobacco factory in the Dominican Republic. Now he writes for Cigar Journal as a correspondent in Spain.
