E.P. Carrillo has been teasing a new look for the 2016 edition of the Short Run on social media lately, but the company isn’t saying much more than what it has posted to Twitter and Facebook.

While details aren’t being released, another Tweet from the company indicates that this year’s Short Run will use a Nicaraguan rosado wrapper.

Additionally, the company has been posting pictures of a new prototype addition to the INCH Maduro line, an 8 x 58 vitola that would be the longest in the series:

A spokesperson for E.P. Carrillo told halfwheel that more information about the Short Run 2016 and other new products is forthcoming.

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.
