EPC Cigar Co. and Bespoke Post have once again teamed up for a cigar-themed box, and once again it will contain a previously unreleased cigar.
The Churchill box, which went on sale over the weekend, includes four E.P. Carrillo cigars, three of which are regular production releases: La Alianza Connoisseur No. 6 Rosado (6 x 52), Seleccion Oscuro Especial No. 6 (6 x 52) and the New Wave Reserva Toro (6 x 52).
But the gem for fans of the brand is the fourth cigar, a Nicaraguan puro referred to as the Family Blend 50 and coming in a 6 1/8 x 50 vitola. Bespoke Post describes it as “Straight from E. P. Carrillo’s personal humidor, this unreleased all-Nicaraguan blend offers a pure, balanced smoke. The deep, warm notes of spice and wood give way to a rich nuttiness on the finish.”
Lissette Perez-Carrillo addd that the comes from her father’s personal collection, noting that i is a release “designated only for Bespoke project productions. It is not available anywhere else.”
Also included in the box are four cedar spills from Commonwealth Cedar Spills, an ashtray/candleholder made from the reclaimed wood of European buildings, a Bespoke Post Den Candle and a cigar cutter.
This is the third year that the two companies have teamed up for such a release, with 2013’s box containing an original variant and unreleased variant of the Edición Limitada 2013, the inaugural Edición Limitada 2009 and an unreleased blend called the Family Blend #809. In 2014, another four-pack was created, this time with a 5 x 50 E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut Brilliantes, and a 6 1/8 x 50 Perez-Carrillo La Historia Doña Elena, along with a prototype for the E.P. Carrillo 5 Year Anniversary and a cigar called the Unreleased Family Blend #0409.
The Churchill box can be purchased directly from Bespoke Post for $55, or $45 with a subscription to the company’s service. Shipment is slated to begin this week.
