A limited edition size of E.P. Carrillo’s La Historia line is heading to a select group of retailers this week, as the company announced it is ready to start shipping the La Historia TAA 656.
The cigar is an exclusive for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, approximately 80 of the countries top retailers that represent some of the highest volume stores in the cigar business. As the name suggests, it measures 6 x 56, a toro gordo that like the rest of the line uses a Mexican wrapper, Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is produced at the company’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory in the Dominican Republic.
It will arrive at stores with an MSRP of $11.50 and will come packaged in 10-count boxes. Lissette Perez-Carrillo told halfwheel that the company is producing 1,000 boxes, making for a total release of just 10,000 cigars.
The La Historia line is also available in four regular production sizes:
- La Historia El Senador (5 3/8 X 52)
- La Historia Doña Elena (6 1/8 X 50)
- La Historia E-III (6 7/8 X 54)
- La Historia Regalias D’ Celia Piramides (5 7/8 X 58)
The first three sizes debuted in 2014, with the Regalias D’ Celia Piramides added in 2015.
