At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, E.P. Carrillo is expected to do a major revamping of its portfolio. As a part of the new structure, E.P. Carrillo will launch a new line called the Family Series. E.P. Carrillo’s La Historia will be a part of this line as well as a all-new blend known as Encore. The cigar is expected to be showcased at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
The differentiator with the Encore is that the tobacco for the Encore was aged and cured in something called tercios. Tercios comes from the bark of palm trees and is used to wrap the tobaccos in bales. After the tobacco is wrapped, there is some additional aging that occurs.
The packaging for the E.P. Carrillo Encore will be similar to La Historia.
