Back better than before
It’s a pretty bold move to revamp your entire cigar line. If anyone can pull it off, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is the man. Founder of the El Credito Cigar Company, a manufacturer of the famous La Gloria Cubana brand, and now head honcho of the EPC Cigar Company, Ernesto has certainly made a name for himself in the cigar industry. He’s shaking things up in his portfolio to stay on top of the game.
Some of his changes for starters is upgrading the E.P. Carrillo Cardinal to Cardinal Impact as part of the Classics series. Now in a box-pressed offering, Cardinal Impact received new branding and packaging. Featuring an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper draped over Nicaraguan filler and binder that delivers a full-bodied profile of fig, earth, and cocoa, Cardinal Impact Natural is a great cigar with a great new look.
