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:

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.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
