Meet The Sergeant, a robusto gordo measuring 5 x 58, released exclusively for the retailers attending the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show. The mastermind behind this creation is Luciano Meirelles, the master blender, president, and co-owner of ACE Prime, who drew inspiration from the life of his dear friend, US Marine Corps Sgt. Brian Acevedo. Brian, a symbol of altruism and selflessness, served as the muse for this exceptional cigar.
Luciano Meirelles shared his thoughts, stating, “Brian is the living example of what it 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.”
Now, let's delve into the blend of this special cigar. The Sergeant boasts an Ecuadorian corojo 99 wrapper that embraces a double binder of leaves cultivated in Connecticut. While ACE Prime remains tight-lipped about the specifics of the binders, they did reveal that it involves a hybrid seed rather than the more traditional broadleaf. The filler tobaccos hail from Nicaragua, featuring ligeros from Estelí and visos from Jalapa and Pueblo Nuevo.
Eradio Pichardo, master blender and co-owner of ACE Prime and Tabacalera Pichardo, emphasized the collective effort and dedication that went into crafting this cigar. He remarked, “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 in the craft of this cigar, everyone, understood the honor of being part of this project.”
The Sergeant is more than just a cigar; it's a tribute to the noble values of humanity and a symbol of honor for those who embody selfless commitment. So, if you're ready for a cigar with a powerful story and a blend that reflects the noblest of values, The Sergeant awaits your indulgence
