After introducing 10 new lines and discontinuing four others at last year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, E.P. Carrillo is keeping it a bit more low key this year, launching just one brand and showing off another that will not be shipped until 2018.
A line that was first released in 2011, the Elenco is being released in the same three vitolas and is composed of a Brazilian wrapper covering a binder from Ecuador and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. All three vitolas are packaged in boxes of 20 and should be shipping to retailers in mid-October.

- Elencos Acto Mayor (6 1/4 x 52) — $9.25 (Boxes of 20, $185)
