2014 #2 cigar of the year rated 95 by Cigar Aficionado!
This cigar is an absolute HOME RUN! It's hard to find such a highly rated well-constructed cigar at such a great price! Look out for rich flavors including notes of roasted nuts, black pepper, dark chocolate, and espresso. Some hints of sweetness add to the perfectly balanced smoke from start to finish!
EP Carrillo just can’t miss, and his new La Historia line extends the streak even further.
Created to honor all of the members of the Perez-Carrillo family who’ve supported and enabled Ernesto to perfect and continue his craft over the past decades, La Historia is a fitting tribute. Gorgeous, ornate artwork and a blend that was selected for the perfect marriage of texture, flavor, and balance, La Historia employs a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Rich, chewy flavors coat the palate before you’re hit with subtleties of roasted nuts, espresso, black pepper, and dark chocolate. Just a hint of sweetness on the finish adds the perfect balance. It’s sensory overload, and it delivers in spades.
"The Perez-Carrillos worked two years on this cigar, and it shows in the final product, which is finished with a luxurious, dark leaf of Mexican tobacco grown in the San Andrés Valley." - Cigar Aficionado
