Perez-Carrillo, as a name, has been known in the cigar industry for decades. Ernesto, like his father before him, and all those even earlier have all been integrally involved in making cigars for generations. This is the inspiration behind the Perez-Carrillo Series of Cigars. These cigars are created from generations’ worth of knowledge, poured into unique blends, and which culminate as the creations of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo himself. Only these cigars are allowed to bear the name Perez-Carrillo and each vitola is an homage to someone within the family and celebrate the pride, joy, and cigars of the Perez-Carrillo history
La Historia was the original release in the Perez-Carrillo Series of Cigars, earning the number two spot on the Top 25 Cigars of 2014 with a 94 rating. It was followed in 2018 with Encore, which was the Cigar of the Year with a 96 rating and Pledge in 2020, which was also chosen Cigar of the Year with a 98 rating. La Historia is included in the series now known as the Trilogy.
A blend that was selected for the perfect marriage of texture, flavor, and balance, La Historia employs a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Rich, chewy flavors coat the palate before you’re hit with subtleties of roasted nuts, espresso, black pepper, and dark chocolate. Just a hint of sweetness on the finish adds the perfect balance. Pairs perfectly with dark roast coffee!
