EP Carrillo Short Run 2016 cigars mark the seventh year in a row that EPC Cigars has released an all-new smoke that's as deliciously full-flavored as it is limited in nature. Master cigar maker, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has introduced something new and exciting: featuring Criollo 98 Nicaraguan filler from the Somoto region, north of Esteli. While that growing area might not be so familiar to cigar fans, Ernesto feels it's time you learn the territory - and experience the interesting complexity and characteristics it introduces to the blend. The binder is Nicaraguan and the wrapper is a shimmering Ecuadorian Habano leaf with a deep, golden brown hue. EP Carrillo Short Run 2016 cigars display a wonderful, rich complexity giving off both a spiciness and a natural sweetness on the palate. This year, only one size has been introduced, a 6 x 52 toro with a meager production run of 2,500 ten-count boxes. This Dominican-made treat also sports a new look for the Short Run line with elegant bands and boxes. If you're looking to add a great new smoke to your humidor collection, make it EP Carrillo Short Run 2016 - buy your box now, while you still can!
