Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2014 #2 Cigar of the Year - Rated 95


Ernesto Perez Carrillo is a name that is synonymous with amazing cigars. First with his astoundingly good and popular La Gloria Cubana, and his own brand once he left LGC. La Historia E-III was created to honor all those that have touched this great cigar maker and helped mold him in his craft. This is the first box pressed cigar produced by EPC and it is a winner.

 

From the dark and oily San Andrés Maduro wrapper to the to the Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and the aged Dominican and Nicaraguan filler, La Historia is a fantastic medium-full-bodied cigar that has placed No. 2 in Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 cigars of 2014.

 

A gorgeous and vibrant band wraps around the stark black wrapper leaf. The oils burst with flavor as soon as La Historia hits your lips. A smooth earthiness is the first sensation before lighting but after the flame, there is an amazing bitter dark chocolate that comes through. Towards the end, a leather note perfectly mixes with all the flavors previous. This 6 7/8 x 54 masterpiece is crafted with a strong homage to the classic flavors of all the cigars from yesteryear. Master cigar maker Ernesto Perez Carrillo has put all of his knowledge of the love of the industry into the making of this beautiful stick. 

 

Every great cigar maker has a foundation behind them to help them become as skilled as they are and E.P. Carrillo is honoring them with his new La Historia E-III. This wonderful cigar is perfect for the evening as the bitter chocolate taste matches perfectly with a sweet after dinner cordial. To taste where E.P. Carrillo got his start, we would also recommend La Gloria Cubana Serie R Maduro.
