E.P. Carrillo has announced the return of its Short Run line, the first time it will be released since 2016.
Making the announcement via Cigar Aficionado, the company said the line will use an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco in the filler. It will be offered in three sizes, each coming in 24-count boxes:
- E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play (5 x 50) — $7.50 (Box of 24, $180)
- E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Extended Play (6 x 52) — $8.50 (Box of 24, $204)
- E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Long Play (6 x 60) — $9.50 (Box of 24, $228)
The first batch of cigars is scheduled to ship next week to 150 retailers and will account for 40,000 cigars. The company said it is hoping to do a second production later in the year that will allow it to ship to more stores.
Emails sent to E.P. Carrillo seeking confirmation of the story’s accuracy and a request for information about the new line have not yet been returned.
