EPC Cigars Short Run

The E.P. Carrillo Short Run series is an annual limited production line that uses different blends each year featuring very special, limited tobaccos. The E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2015 featured a Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 wrapper that was very dark and oily, grown in the Jalapa region with a Nicargauan Binder and a combo Nicaraguan-Dominican filler made in three sizes.

The EPC Short Run 2016 has an Ecaudorian Habano wrapper, and 100% Nicaraguan binder and filler blend that includes some Criollo ’98 from the growing region of Somoto, Nicaragua which is located about 32 miles north of Estelí on the Pan American highway. “A lot of people aren’t familiar with Somoto,” said Ernesto Perez-Carrillo to Cigar Insider. “The growing area isn’t that big, but I think the tobacco brings complexity to the blend.”

The EPC Short Run 2016 is made in a single 6" x 52 Toro, though pictures of the boxes say Robusto 6 x 52. E.P. Carillo describes the cigar as a “medium/full bodied cigar at 3/4 strength with a full flavor profile that has spice, pepper, a bourbon wood undertone that rounds out with a light creaminess in the finish. This true small batch cigar has an easy draw and lots of smoke…”

The EPC Short Run 2016 is made at Ernesto Perez-Carillo’s own Tabacalera La Alianza factory in Santiago, D.R. Only 2,500 10-ct boxes of the EPC Short Run 2016 will be produced.
