EP Carrillo La Historia E-III – The Number 2 cigar in the world in 2014 as rated by Cigar Aficionado who rated it a 95 on their 100 point scale and who praised it this way: “In the world of cigars, it’s hard to find a man more experienced—or more respected—than Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. He got his start in the cigar business making La Gloria Cubanas in a modest factory located in the heart of Little Havana, Miami’s Calle Ocho. Around 1990 he was selling standout, handmade cigars for less than $2 each. A newfound interest in cigars (and an article in a certain magazine) turned his company into a gem, and he couldn’t keep up with the demand. La Glorias went from curiosity to institution, and Perez-Carrillo expanded into the Dominican Republic, vastly expanding the production of La Gloria Cubana cigars.

Perez-Carrillo sold his business in 1999, and left the company in 2009. He set out to try something new, forming EPC Cigar Co. with his children, Lissette and Ernesto III that same year. On the fifth anniversary of the new venture, Perez-Carrillo hit his stride. His La Historia is decorated with various images, including his grandmother in a Pinar del Río tobacco field and his daughter in Miami. The Perez-Carrillos worked two years on this cigar, and it shows in the final product, which is finished with a luxurious, dark leaf of Mexican tobacco grown in the San Andrés Valley.  Its rich and absolutely delicious with coffee, wood and earth notes and a touch of sweet anise on the finish.  Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has created many great cigars in his 40-plus years in business. His La Historia is his best effort in years.”

The Story or “La Historia” of the Perez-Carrillo family bears the influence of the women in the family that have been the inspiration to the Master himself. For Ernesto his driving inspiration was his mother and daughter as depicted on the cigar bands. The former while in the tobacco fields of Cuba and the latter in Ernesto’s home of Miami, Florida.

Traditions are the roots to maintain a thriving culture. EP Carrillo culture embodies this foundation through family, quality, and character at the core of every premium cigar they produce. For four generations, the family cultivated and refined their mastery through heritage, precision, and craft.

Cigar Aficionado sums it up well, “Achievements like this are the confluence of skill, talent and experience. In his 50-year career, Perez-Carrillo has owned factories big and small, worked for a major corporation, and has been making cigars on his own terms for the last decade. Now a two-time Cigar of the Year recipient, the man who’s done it all in the cigar business has just done it again.”

In the cigar world many consider E.P. Carrillo to be the king of cigars in Miami. One of the most highly respected cigar rollers in the city, and the man responsible for the original La Gloria Cubana cigar as well as the El Rico Habano brand.
