E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2015 Shipping Soon


Fans of the E.P. Carrillo Short Run won’t have to wait much longer to try the latest from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.

The company has informed retailers that the E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2015  will begin shipping in mid-March. Now in its sixth release, the basic details have become tradition: it’s a late winter/spring release, limited in production, made in three sizes and sold in boxes of 24.


All of those hold true for the 2015 edition.

It uses a Nicaraguan criollo 98 wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The wrapper is paramount to the release. Perez-Carrillo Jr. wanted to create a cigar sometime ago using a wrapper similar to this particular leaf, but he couldn’t find it until recently. The company is describing this cigar as “sharing a memory.”

The three sizes for the release are Napoleon (5 x 50, $6.75), Vencedores (6 x 52, $7.75) and Imperios (6 x 60, $8.75). All three sizes come in boxes of 24 and are limited to 1,500 boxes.

This year’s release sees a slight packaging tweak, both the primary and secondary bands are done in the style of the New Wave Reserva and Cabinet that debuted last year.

The cigars should debut at Federal Cigar’s 94th anniversary celebration next Friday and ship nationally shortly thereafter.

E.P. Carrillo cigars are made at the company’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic.
