Ernesto uses Dominican flavorful tobacco in his blend. Ernesto’s Cuban-seed tobacco from the Dominican Republic blends perfectly with Nicaraguan tobacco to deliver a medium-bodied cigar that features rich and creamy flavors. These fine tobaccos mix to give the E.P. Carrillo Edición Inaugural 2009 its complexity and sensuous aroma.
Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s achievements have been driven largely by an insatiable desire to understand the intricacies of tobaccos from all over the world. “Each tobacco has its own character. You have to treat each tobacco differently and understand how they work together,” he says.
