Cigar News: E.P. Carrillo El Futuro Reignites the Encore Line

The blend that received the 2018 Cigar of the Year, with the Encore Majestic, just took on a new life in 2022. Encore El Futuro is being introduced to the esteemed Encore Line. This well-balanced and aromatic cigar is a true robusto at 5 x 50, priced at $11.90 each and presented in a 10 count box.

E.P. Carrillo will be opening Encore El Futuro to a Limited Launch, with American retailers expecting the cigars to ship this week. Only 1,000 boxes are available now, with a 10-box maximum to select retailers nationwide. E.P. Carrillo plans on opening regular orders of El Futuro at PCA 2022 to all retailers in attendance of the PCA trade show.

Balancing notes of sweetness, earth, and spice, Encore El Futuro mirrors Majestic (5 3/8 X 52), which was Rated 96 as the #1 Rated Cigar of 2018 by Cigar Aficionado.

Encore El Futuro has an elegant and refined profile that draws an incredibly smooth yet complex taste. Truly in a class of its own, Encore El Futuro highlights a medium-full strength profile with flavor notes that are unmatched. The blend is composed of Nicaraguan tobaccos.

Cigarmaker Ernesto Perez-Carrillo notes:

“We wanted to do a size similar to Pledge Prequel, which is the highest-rated Cigar of the Year with a 98 rating. The goal was to have the same taste profile of another Cigar of the Year, the Encore Majestic, in the smaller Pledge Prequel size.”

Carrillo’s Sister, Lissette Perez-Carrillo added:

“Encore El Futuro is about generations that are just now learning more about the business. My brother and I are part of the 4th generation in the industry and hope that our younger family members, those that the other Encore sizes are named after, will aspire to continue this family business for generations to follow. El Futuro represents the future of not only E.P. Carrillo, but also those that will share in our journey.”

Far from a curtain call, Encore El Futuro best captures the art of bringing back another masterful performance by its maestro.
