EP Carrillo has had a fantastic year with all of wonderful cigars he has released this year!  I truly do not think that Ernesto Perez-Carrillo could not make a bad cigar if he tried!

These cigars will come in a gorgeous wooden box of 10.  This cigar is downright pretty.  It has a dark, dark coffee/espresso color.  It is slightly oily and has gorgeous vein lines.  It is slightly spongy to the touch and looks very well constructed.  The draw was nice and easy and it burns evenly and smooth.

There is only a tiny bit of spice to this cigar. There is a bit of bitterness upon first lighting.  I also pick up on roasted coffee and/or espresso notes.  There is a bit of sweetness throughout – it is not overpowering but a bit of pleasant sweetness.

I would not quantify this as a super complex cigar however the flavors are rich and robust, and still somehow manage to be creamy, which made this a very enjoyable cigar to smoke!  

These cigars are available on!!!!!
