E.P. Carrillo Elencos Edición Limitada 2010 - Ranked 8th Best Cigar of 2010
Original Article: http://goo.gl/FeJBQZ
Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has been making cigars for a long time. He learned his craft from his father, working in Little Havana at their tiny factory called El Credito Cigars, the birthplace of the non-Cuban La Gloria Cubana. That smoke became one of the first true hits of the cigar boom, and grew into something far larger. Later Perez-Carrillo sold his business to Swedish Match AB, and in March 2009 he resigned from the company to forge a new cigar business with his son and daughter: EPC Cigar Co. He has come out with four cigars since 2009: the E.P. Carrillo Short Run, his so-called "core" line, and two limited editions, one each year. The E.P. Carrillo Elencos Limited Edition is his newest, and perhaps his best, a sweet and savory smoke that combines flavors of caramel and leather. The only flaw with this cigar is its rarity-the company is only making 1,000 boxes, each containing 10 cigars. Perez-Carrillo is back in a big way.
