EP Carrillo just can’t miss, and his new La Historia line extends the streak even further.
Created to honor all of the members of the Perez-Carrillo family who’ve supported and enabled Ernesto to perfect and continue his craft over the past decades, La Historia is a fitting tribute. Gorgeous, ornate artwork and a blend that was selected for the perfect marriage of texture, flavor, and balance, La Historia employs a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Rich, chewy flavors coat the palate before you’re hit with subtleties of roasted nuts, espresso, black pepper, and dark chocolate. Just a hint of sweetness on the finish adds the perfect balance. It’s sensory overload, and it delivers in spades.
Great News! In addition to earning the #2 Cigar of 2015 spot, La Historia by E.P. Carrillo recently earned the #24 Cigar of 2021 with a 92-rating noting: “It returns to our list with its bold, flavorful blend, redolent of coffee, wood and earth, even a touch of briny olive.”
