Second Short Run from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Debuts
Posted: June 23, 2011
Perez-Carrillo, the man who once made La Gloria Cubanas in Miami, has
launched his second E.P. Carrillo Short Run cigar. The smokes are on
their way to cigar stores now.
The original Short Run was the second smoke from Perez-Carrillo after he left La Gloria. The Short Run came out in mid-2010, with a line of three sizes, made with Ecuador Sumatra wrappers, Nicaraguan binders and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler.
The E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2011 is somewhat different on paper. Perez-Carrillo has opted for a Havana-seed Ecuador wrapper (rather than Sumatra seed) while the other components are the same. His son Ernesto Perez-Carrillo III called the cigars "a bit stronger" than the previous version.
The E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2011 comes in three sizes: Bombones, which measures 4 7/8 by 50 ring, with a sug- gested retail price of $6.35; Cañonazos, 5 7/8 by 52, $7.10; and Inmensos, 6 1/4 by 60, $8.60. The cigars are comparable in price to the previous edition of Short Run.
Like the original, these will be limited. There are only 1,000 boxes per size, and 24 cigars to each box.
