E.P. Carrillo Elenco

What’s old is what’s new is becoming cliché in the cigar industry these days, but for E.P. Carrillo it is very true. At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, E.P. Carrillo brought back its Elencos line.

The E.P. Carrillo Elencos was a line that was originally introduced in 2011. It is a line that was derived from the E.P. Carrillo Edición Limitada 2010. The Limitada 2010 was a popular limited production line, so the company decided to make an ongoing production of the blend, which was dubbed the E.P. Carrillo Elencos. In addition to the original Toro size of the Limitada (which was renamed Elites), two other sizes were added: Acto Mayor (Torpedo) and Don Rubino (a Robusto).  After a couple of years, the line was discontinued.

Elencos is positioned in the “Elite” Tier of the E.P. Carrillo portfolio. For all practical purposes, this is a grouping of what could be considered some of E.P. Carrillo’s more premium cigars. This tier also includes the E.P. Carrillo New Wave ReservaE.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro, and E.P. Carrillo Capa de Sol.

In addition, new packaging has been introduced that is consistent with the design introduced in 2016.
