E.P. Carrillo’s massive revamping of its portfolio pretty much hit every offering. While the E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut did not have a blend change, it did receive some updated packaging. This new look was unveiled at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
The new packaging included new band and box design.
In addition, the Selectos de Oro, a 6 1/4 x 43 offering has been dropped leaving five vitolas in the line.
The New Wave Connecticut made its debut in 2011. As a part of the portfolio revamping, the New Wave Connecticut has been included in the E.P. Carrillo Classics Series.
