EP Carrillo Short Run 2012 Connecticut

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder: Connecticut Broad Leaf
Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican
Vitola: Toro
Length: 5 7/8
Ring Gage: 52
Strength: Medium to Full

This is the first Short Run Ernesto Perez Carillo has made in a Connecticut wrapper.  There will be 3 sizes available; Exquisitos (4 7/8 by 50), Inuictos (5 7/8 by 52), and the Reinados (6 1/4 by 60).  Only 1,000 boxes will be available throughout the nation for each size.

I smoked the Inuictos which is a Toro sized cigar.  This cigar has a gorgeous honey colored wrapper.  It has a very rugged appearance with beautiful vein lines.  The triple cap looks perfectly constructed.  It was firm to the touch with no soft spots or spongy areas.  The draw was perfect and it had a nice and slow even burn. 

There was a touch of pepper upon lighting up, but that went away the more you smoked.  Overall I tasted sweetness, mixed with earthy and nutty notes.  This was a very complex cigar.  It is not very often that you have a cigar that has a Connecticut wrapper with a binder and filler that were used for a Maduro.  This made for a very interesting mix of flavors that I thoroughly enjoyed!

This cigar has a lot of body for having a Connecticut wrapper. I was very impressed with the strength and flavor of this cigar.  I say Medium to Full only because I am more inclined to fuller bodied cigars and found this to be a Medium, yet I can see where someone might say this would be a full body.

EP Carillo has done it again with this amazing addition to his already outstanding line!!!

These cigars have shipped and will be ready for purchase shortly from, where they are being pre-released!!!
