The limited production E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 line, which shipped earlier this summer, is making the rounds once again for another run. American retailers can expect the cigars to arrive this week.

According to the company, only 350 boxes of each size (or 1,050 boxes total) will be shipping out to 150 stores. The line will be available in the same three sizes as before, each named after types of vinyl records: Short Play, measuring 5 inches by 50 ring gauge ($7.50); Extended Play, 6 by 52 ($8.50); and Long Play, 6 by 60 ($9.50). The cigars ship in boxes of 24. 

Short Run is not a typical cigar brand. Instead of set lines and blends, it is created as limited releases of cigars made from smaller batches of tobaccos. Both batches of Retro 2021 utilize the same blend: an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler.

The Retro 20201 line appeared at the PCA trade show over the summer where it was available for preorder for those who attended. 

The first batch of Short Run Retro 2021 was rated in the July 27 issue of Cigar Insider, with two out of the three sizes scoring 90 points.
