E.P._Carrillo_Cardinal_Impact

As a part of E.P. Carrillo’s portfolio revamping, the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal line has undergone some changes. For starters, the line is now being called the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Impact. The line has now become an all box-pressed offering. In addition, the cigars have received new banding and new packaging. The Cardinal Impact made its official debut at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show..

Like before, the Cardinal Impact is offered in a Natural or Maduro offering.  The Cardinal Impact Natural features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. Meanwhile the Cardinal Impact Maduro features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan filler.

The line has been streamlined to three box-pressed sizes. Each is packaged in 20 count boxes. The box-press sizes replaced the rounded parejos that were a part of the original Cardinal Impact line.

As a part of the portfolio revamping, the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Impact has been included in the E.P. Carrillo Classics Series.
