E.P. Carrillo is promising both line extensions and a new line to be unveiled at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show this week, and over the weekend they announced the latter, Seleccion Oscuro.

The announcement came via a video released on the company’s Facebook pages, with the line already added to the company’s website.

The Seleccion Oscuro line uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper with an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan fillers. In the video, Lissette Perez-Carrillo describes the cigar as having top notes of pepper, middle notes of woods and nuts and a bottom note of sweetness.

It is being released in six sizes, all in 24-count boxes: Robusto Gordo (5 x 54, MSRP $7.50 per cigar, $180 per box), Nacionales (5 1/2 x 44, $6.50, $156), Small Churchill (5 1/2 x 50, $7.25, $174), Especial No. 6 (6 x 52, $8, $192), Pirmades Royal (6 x 52 torpedo, $8.25, $198) and Dinamicos (6 7/8 x 49, $8.25, $198).

It is expected to be in stores in late July or early August.

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.
