The legacy lives on!
Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s story starts by chance after meeting Rolando Reyes in historic Calle Ocho. Taking a young Perez-Carrillo under his wing, Reyes is often credited with helping Ernesto develop his incredible feel and passion for tobacco. Using the Original Cuba Aliados Blend as his inspiration, Perez-Carrillo has crafted a special release for 2022 limited to only 10,000 boxes for the entire line.
The Cuba Aliados by EPC Robusto cigar is part of this special release from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo requested by the Oliva Cigar Company. A new chapter in this brand’s storied past, this year’s offering is a Robusto (5 x 50) draped in a flawless Sumatra wrapper that has been aged for nearly 5 years. The final result is significantly complex yet smooth. In this medium-bodied cigar, expect refined notes of coffee and cream with a finish that lasts nearly as long as its legacy.
