Cigar-making legend Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has long been known as the mastermind behind La Gloria Cubana. A full-bodied, full-flavored, blockbuster brand. After managing and expanding this legendary brand for decades, Ernesto has branched out to create a new series of delicious super-premiums under his own name, E.P. Carrillo.
E.P. Carrillo is a fantastic, medium to full-bodied handmade from one of the industry's oldest and most respected cigar artisans. Each beautiful vitola boasts an impressive Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. This leaf is dark, leathery, oily, and has been aging for a minimum of 3 years prior to its placement upon a bold blend of aged tobaccos including Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. The blend is eventful and thorough, issuing a rich and creamy bouquet that's woodsy and toasty to the core. Sweet peppery nuances are left on the finish, complementing the zesty aroma to perfection and completing a complex experience sure to soothe the palate with each puff.
In addition to a spot among the world's Top 25 Cigars, E.P. Carrillo received a 92-point rating, noting: "... creamy yet spicy, taking on savory notes of leather and a black-cherry sweetness."
