Cigar expert hosting blending seminar in Caguas on Feb. 9th

Master Blender Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is dedicated to producing the finest cigars. He supervises the tobacco blending process at his factory in the Dominican Republic.

Luxury hand-rolled cigar company, E.P. Carrillo, is bringing its first-ever blending seminar to Puerto Rico Feb. 9, featuring cigar expert José Blanco, the company announced.

The 90-minute seminar will take place at Calle Ramón Emeterio Betances #56 in Caguas, will teach guests the difference between the flavor and strength of the featured cigars. A live Q&A session will take place to give guests an opportunity to get additional information about the industry and certain techniques.

The program is free and includes one free cigar specifically made by E.P. Carrillo for the sessions, which features five different wrappers from various countries. Space is limited so participants are encouraged to arrive early. The goal is for attendees to pick up the unique characteristics, explicitly noted in each of the individual wrappers and the overall blend.

“We offer more than 15 different varieties of classic and state-of-the-art cigars at E.P.
