Ace Prime has announced an exclusive cigar that will be offered at the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show called The Sergeant. It’s a cigar that pays homage to the military “dedicated to the heroes who fight in anonymity, the ones who self sacrifice out of deep-rooted honor, regardless of recognition or acclaim.”
“Luciano and I blended this cigar mindful that this product represents the most noble values of humanity and that’s why the hands and hearts involved into the craft of this cigar, everyone, understood the honor of being part of this project,” said Eradio Pichardo, Master Blender and co-owner of Ace Prime and Tabacalera Pichardo, in a press release.
The blend features an Ecuadorian Corojo ’99 Rosado wrapper over a double U.S. Connecticut binder and fillers from Nicaragua. The cigar is offered in a single size – a 5 x 58 Pareto. The Sergeant will be presented in 20-count boxes.
“I was inspired by the life of my dear friend and US Marine Corp Sgt. Brian Acevedo, one of the most altruist and self-given persons I know.” Brian is the living example of what is to put the lives of others before your own, he has encountered peril many times and stood his ground. This cigar honors every man and woman who bravely committed to unconditional altruism,” says Luciano Meirelles – Master Blender, President and co-owner of Ace Prime.
The PCA Trade Show opens July 10, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
