E.P. Carrillo announced plans for its new Perez-Carrillo line on Friday morning, posting a picture of the bands on the company’s Facebook page and saying that the new release will be coming in May 2014, ahead of the annual IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.
It was in May 2013 when pictures of the Perez-Carrillo band first started appearing, as Dan Reeve of Cigar Press posted this picture to his Instagram account. Ernesto Perez-Carrillo III confirmed to halfwheel that the band was in fact for a new line to be called Perez-Carrillo, but that a blend had not been finalized at that time so a release date had not been set. While the company has not provided any specific information about the cigar, a spokesperson told halfwheel that additional information about the new Perez-Carrillo line will be released in the near future.
