E.P. Carrillo has announced their latest cigar, E.P. Carrillo 2023 TAA Exclusive, is now shipping. E.P. Carrillo’s TAA series is an exclusive blend produced and distributed to the Tobacconist’s Association of America retail members. The blend for this years version includes an Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper, USA binder, and fillers from both the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
The E.P. Carrillo 2023 TAA Exclusive is rolled at Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic, and comes in just one size, a box-pressed 6 x 52 Toro. Each cigar has an MSRP of $13.00 and they come in boxes of 10.
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.
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.

“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.
