E.P Carrillo Shipping TAA 2023 This Week

July 14, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



E.P. Carrillo, internationally renowned for their superb craftsmanship and premium quality cigars, is excited to announce their newest creation: E.P. Carrillo 2023 TAA Exclusive.

E.P. Carrillo’s TAA series is an exclusive blend produced and distributed to the Tobacconist’s Association of America retail members. The wrapper in this year’s cigar is an Ecuadoran Connecticut, binder from the USA and fillers from both the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The blend provides a medium strength, complex and aromatic cigar with notes of pepper, earth, nuts and cocoa. A long creamy finish with a touch of cedar round out the cigar. 

Made at the Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic, the E.P. Carrillo 2023 TAA Exclusive is carefully crafted and presented in one box-pressed size. The Toro, at 6 x 52 retails for $13 per cigar (10 ct box). Shipping began this week.

Ernesto Perez-Carrillo comments: “I am really looking forward to retailers’ and consumers’ reaction to this special TAA exclusive. We used distinctive well-fermented Ecuador Connecticut wrappers which blend amazingly well with rich Connecticut Broadleaf binders.” Ernesto’s son, Ernesto III adds “When adding three-year-old fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic to this blend, it delivers an incredibly smooth journey that doesn’t shy away from full-flavor.” Lissette Perez-Carrillo is quoted: “Developing the packaging for this special blend was also very exciting. While we like to use the TAA logo on these limited releases, we were more attentive to details in the box than in the past. We feel it’ll stand out more and garner the attention this outstanding cigar deserves.”
