Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, best known for working with Cuban seed and other fuller flavored tobaccos, is looking to the cigar world's mildest leaf, Connecticut shade, for his newest project.

"It should be out in the middle of April," said Perez-Carrillo, the founder of E.P. Carrillo Cigar Co., maker of E.P. Carrillo cigars as well as the E.P. Carrillo Elencos Edición Limitada 2010, Cigar Aficionado's No. 8 cigar of the year. The cigar will have four sizes.

Look for more information and a tasting of the new smokes in an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
