La Historia

Every cigar tells a story, and La Historia by E.P. Carrillo is a deeply personal narrative of the Perez-Carrillo family, paying homage to the women who have inspired the master blender himself, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. This exceptional cigar is more than just a blend; it’s a heartfelt tribute to Ernesto’s mother and daughter, depicted on the band, symbolizing the rich heritage and enduring legacy of the Perez-Carrillo family.

The artwork on the band is a poignant representation of Ernesto’s inspirations: his mother in the tobacco fields of Cuba and his daughter in his home of Miami, FL. These images encapsulate the journey of the Perez-Carrillo family from Cuba to the United States, symbolizing resilience, tradition, and the pursuit of excellence.

First Time Grandpa

Rated 5.0 out of 5
9 February, 2024

I was given a Carrillo La Historia from a friend to celebrate becoming a grandfather! It was my first time smoking this cigar and it was so good, I felt compelled to write a review. As advertised, great notes of coffee and cocoa, but the earthiness made it just right. It was a great smoke from the first puff until the end. Perfect, just like my grandson!
