E.P. Carrillo will be adding a pair of 6 x 60 line extensions to a couple of its regular production offerings.  The E.P. Carrillo Cardinal 60 will be added to both the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Natural and E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Maduro lines.  The E-Stunner Limousin will also add a 6 x 60 into the E-Stunner line.  These new sizes are expected to hit retail shops by July.

The Cardinal 60 becomes the first line extension to the E.P. Carrilo Cardinal line.  The Cardinal was introduced in 2012 and features both a Sumatra (Natural) and Connecticut Broadleaf (Maduro) offering.

The Limousin is also the first line extension to the E-Stunner line.  E-Stunner was launched at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show.  The E-Stunner was a project spearheaded by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s children, Ernesto III and Lissette The packaging, and even the cigar names have a Western theme to it. It was designed to have a younger demographic.  A “Limousin” is a French breed of cattle.  Each of the E-Stunner vitola names tie to cattle in some way.

The new 60 ring gauge E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Natural and E-Stunner are being included in a sampler pack by E.P. Carrillo called the “Tuxedo Pack” – consisting entirely of 60 ring gauge cigars that also include the E.P. Carrillo INCH, E.P. Carrillo Core Line, and E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut.

At a glance, here is a look at the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal and E-Stunner lines.
