The E.P. Carrillo Platinum Bash, a crowdsourced release by E.P. Carrillo has now commenced shipping to retailers.

Platinum Bash is meant to commemorate the 70th birthday of company founder Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. The company originally offered up a three-cigar sampler. The idea behind the concept is consumers would be able to vote for which one of the three blends in the sampler should become a limited edition release.  Back in early March, the winning blend was announced – a San Andres-wrapped cigar.

While E.P. Carrillo has commenced shipping, the company said as additional inventory becomes available from the factory, it will continue to ship to retailers.
