Brand: EP Carrillo
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Dominican Piloto Cubano
Size: Robusto 4 7/8 x 50
I was at my local cigar shop looking for something different to try, the EP Carrillo stuck out. Its light chocolatey wrapper looked to nice to pass up. It smells sweet and of a light tobacco. Cold draw has a sweetness to it as well. The wrapper is kind of standard looking, nothing to amazing but it has two bands with the second showing Short Run 2013. Each year EP Carrillo produces the same 3 sizes in limited numbers, but with different blends, called Short Run.
Overall a fantastic smoke and really enjoyable. The flavors were complex enough and were not overpowering. The draw was amazing and smoke production perfect. Construction was also great. I highly recommend this if you can get your hands on one.
