The Grand Prize by EP Carrillo is a recent offering that brings one of the most sought of cigars from any boutique cigar crafter, and thats an extordinary value brand! EP has just released that. Here is a blurb from the brand : The Factory series arises from the daily work on the rolling tables of Tabacalera La Alianza, Ernesto Perez- Carrillo’s factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Ernesto’s relentless pursuit of efficiency and sustainability of each process is paramount to the development of each cigar in the Factory Series. It is a series designed to achieve optimal use of raw materials that have been meticulously selected, processed, rolled, aged and classified by Ernesto himself. Tabacalera La Alianza offers exclusive products with unique tobacco kept under the most rigorous quality control to keep a high level of consistency. Personally reviewing each cigar and seeking excellence and attention to detail, nothing escapes the vigilante eyes and mind of the master himself.
