Members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America will soon be getting their own exclusive size of E.P. Carrillo’s La Historia line, as the company today announced that it would be releasing the La Historia TAA 656 in late spring.
The new cigar measures 6 x 56, a thick toro that will sell for $11.50 and will be packaged in 10-count boxes. Like the rest of the line, it uses a Mexican wrapper, Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
The line has grown to be available in four sizes since being released in 2014, with the Regalias D’ Celia Piramides added in 2015:
- La Historia El Senador (5 3/8 X 52)
- La Historia Regalias D’ Celia Piramides (5 7/8 X 58)
- La Historia Doña Elena (6 1/8 X 50)
- La Historia E-III (6 7/8 X 54)
The line is produced at the company’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory in the Dominican Republic. Lissette Perez-Carrillo told halfwheel that the company is producing 1,000 boxes, with shipping to start in late May or early June.
The Tobacconists’ Association of America will hold its annual meeting from March 17-21 at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic.
