The E.P. Carrillo La Historia TAA 656 is a 6 inch by 56 ring gauge cigar made just for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America.

The TAA exclusive from EPC Cigar Co. is heading to retailers this week and it’s a pretty hefty smoke. The E.P. Carrillo La Historia TAA 656 is a 6 inch by 56 ring gauge cigar made just for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America.

Like the rest of the line, the La Historia TAA 656 consists of a dark, Mexican wrapper, Ecuadoran binder and filler from Nicaragua. It’s the same blend as the La Historia E-III—Cigar Aficionado’s No. 2 cigar for 2014—only this new smoke is two ring gauges thicker.

According to brand owner Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, who’s known in the industry for his large ring-gauge formats, the bigger size “adds a whole new dimension to the La Historia blend.”

The cigars were originally slated for a May release, so they’re about one month late. They come in 10-count boxes, retail for $11.50 each and are made in the Dominican Republic at Perez-Carrillo’s La Alianza factory, the same facility that produces the E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic, Cigar Aficionado’s 2018 Cigar of the Year.
