IPCPR 2018: E.P. Carrillo


E.P. Carrillo introduced 10 new lines and discontinued four others at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and showed off two new brands at last year’s show.

At this year’s show, there was only one new cigar: a regular production release named INCH Ringmaster.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
