E.P. Carrillo has announced details around the long awaited Perez-Carrillo La Historia Cigar. This will be the company’s first box-pressed offering under the E.P. Carrillo umbrella. The cigar will be launched at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas with availability in August.
The name Perez-Carrillo is the namesake of company founder Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. This has been a long awaited release as word of this cigar first surfaced back in January, 2013 on the Cigar Dave Show. Since then there have been numerous teasers by the company. Back in March in our 3/22/14 Cigar Industry Report, we noted one of the teasers indicating that the prototype of La Historia was using a San Andres Maduro wrapper.
The Perez-Carrillo La Historia was mentioned back in January as being a part of a larger effort called “The Generations” series, but no details on that were mentioned at this time.
The 2014 IPCPR Trade Show is proving to be a busy one for E.P. Carrillo. In addition to launching the Perez Carrillo La Historia, a new corojo blend as a part of the INCH line called the E.P. Carrillo INCH C-99 is planned. The company is also planning a 5th Anniversary cigar.
This continues a busy year for E.P. Carrillo. Earlier this year the company launched the E.P. Carrillo INCH Short Run 2014 and the joint project with Michael Giannini called Re+United
