E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Series Maduro
E.P. Carrillo hits 'full' stride.
Since establishing the E.P. Carrillo line, Ernesto Carrillo has been working round the clock to deliver one top-notch blend after the other. It seems like the guy never sleeps. Being the well-oiled machine that he is, E.P. continues his impressive trend with another winning blend, the Cardinal Series. Slated as his most full-bodied cigar to date, prepare thyself for an epic full-bodied experience.
Cardinal Maduro is no doubt full-bodied, but hidden beneath the waves of strength awaits a savory array of hearty flavors. It all starts with a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, drenched with oils, and enticingly dark. Just beneath this leaf, a long-filler core of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos hugged by a Nicaraguan binder. Together this ensemble strikes up meaty full-bodied smoke, that is thick, billowy and refined in character. Notes of spicy-sweetness take center stage, as additional notes of earth, cedar, coffee bean, and cocoa enter the fray. Full-bodied, yet exceptionally well-balanced and delicious, the Cardinal Maduro delivers even more than advertised.
