New EPC La Historia Regalias d’Celia – coming in July

E. P. Carrillo La Historia Regalias d’Celia


E.P. Carrillo is introducing a new size to its signature La Historia line: the EPC La Historia Regalias d’Celia.  The EPC La Historia Regalias d’Celia cigar is a soft pressed short torpedo measuring 5 7/8″ x  58 with beautiful construction, blend and flavor profile exactly like the entire La Historia line.  The quality of construction is evident in the long tapered torpedo cap, providing smokers with the exact ring gauge of the draw in this 58 ring gauge cigar; lest one fall into “big ring gauge syndrome.”

The La Historia Regalias d’Celia blend is a multi-national with tobaccos from four countries.  It uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Ecuadorian sumatra binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers.   The soon to be four size La Historia regular production line is as follows:

Regalias d’Celia: 5 7/8 x 58 (New Short Torpedo)

El Senador: 5 3/8 x 52 (Robusto)

Doña Elena: 6 1/8 x 50 (Toro)

E-III: 6 7/8 x 54 (Toro Gordo)


Current EPC La Historia Lineup

In September 2014, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, owner of EPC Cigar Co., knocked it out of the park with his La Historia line.  Shortly after launch, the cigars performed well in a Cigar Insider vertical tasting, with the brand averaging 90 points, and the La Historia E-III went on to take the No. 2 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2014 with an impressive 95 rating.

The La Historia Regalias d’Celia box-pressed torpedo is being rolled at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera de Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic.  The new vitola is set for an introduction at the IPCPR trade show this July in New Orleans and Anthony’s Cigar Emporium will surely be ordering some and expecting arrival in late July.

Every size in the La Historia line has a name with special significance to Perez-Carrillo. El Senador is named after Perez-Carrillo’s father, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr., who was a senator, and E-III is named after Perez-Carrillo’s son, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo III. Doña Elena is named after Perez-Carrillo’s wife, and the new La Historia Regalias d’Celia is named after his wife’s grandmother.  It is an homage to Perez-Carrillo’s family that helped him build his own vertically integrated cigar company after Ernesto left General Cigar Co. a few years back leaving his legacy in the very popular La Gloria Cubana brand.

“We wanted to expand the line but wanted it to be something that was special, so we debated between a corona size and a torpedo,” Perez-Carrillo told Cigar Aficionado. “Being that there are a lot of torpedos with the standard size of 6 1/8 inches by 52 ring gauge, we decided to make it 5 7/8 by 58 and it smoked great with the La Historia blend—and the fact that it is pressed gave it a unique smoke and character.”
