E.P. Carrillo is using a soon-to-be-released sampler called the Tuxedo Edition to unveil a pair of new 60 ring gauge additions to the Cardinal and E-Stunner lines.

EP Carrillo Tuxedo Edition

The company has been showing off the sampler on its Facebook page recently, with shipping slated to begin by the end of June. Contained in the sampler are five cigars all with 60 ring gauges: the previously released INCH No. 60, New Wave Connecticut El Decano and Core Line Natural Golosos, as well as these two new additions.

Both the Cardinal 60 and E-Stunner Limousin 60 become the fourth vitolas in their respective lines. The Limousin derives its name from the French breed of cattle by the same name, which keeps the addition consistent with the other vitolas in the E-Stunner line: the Corriente, Siboney and Brahman, all of which are breeds of cattle.

MSRP for the sampler is $39.95. The company will also be making the Cardinal 60 and E-Stunner Limousin 60 available as regular production cigars available outside the sampler in the coming weeks, with the Cardinal 60 coming in 20 count boxes and the E-Stunner Limousin 60 in 24-count boxes. Pricing has yet to be announced for the two new vitolas.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
