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 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.
