History of Short Run

E.P. Carrillo’s Short Run, initially launched in 2010 as one of the company’s initial offerings. The idea spawned as a way to use small unique tobacco batches that are unavailable in sufficient amounts to keep a regular-production line going, hence the name.

The Short Run series is renowned for its unique, one-of-a-kind blends that use the rarest tobaccos and tell distinct stories every year.  This annual limited edition release is the first time it’s being made in another factory outside of the Dominican Republic.

The Collaboration

Made at the Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co factory in Honduras, this collaboration between Ernesto Perez-Carrillo and Oscar Valladares promises to deliver a cigar experience unlike any other. Drawing upon their collective expertise, the duo will combine traditional craftsmanship with contemporary flair, pushing the boundaries of flavor profiles and creating a truly unique smoking journey for enthusiasts.

“Our 2023 Short Run is a tribute to the timeless character of this unique tobacco, brought to life with a modern touch.”

– Ernesto Perez-Carrillo
