E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series
E.P. Carrillo Limitada 2010 is back....kind of.
Wish you had gotten your hands on more of the E.P. Carrillo Limitada 2010? Or maybe you’re kicking yourself for not trying one? You can put those worries to rest because the new E.P. Carrillo Elencos, is the same blend as the famed E.P. Carrillo Limitada 2010. That’s right; the blend is the exact same previously found in the cigar that garnered a 94 rating from Cigar Aficionado, systematically earning a spot in the magazine’s illustrious Top 25 Cigars of the Year for 2010. (Number eight to be exact, for all the sticklers out there) Crafted by industry great Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, originally of La Gloria Cubana fame, the Elencos is a welcomed fixture in the great portfolio that is E.P. Carrillo.
E.P. Carrillo Elencos is a full-bodied, full flavored handmade that picks up right where the Limitada left off. This lovely handmade features a Brazilian Habano wrapper oozing with oily goodness. This succulent leaf is dark and inviting, sitting atop a well-aged selection of Nicaraguan long-fillers and Dominican binder. The smoke is rich and complex, projecting a satisfying bevy of flavors to the palate. Shining through the rich smoke are meaty notes of cedar and dried fruit complemented by a seamless balance of spice. Highly enjoyable, and a pleasure to smoke, the new Elencos is a beautiful representation of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s talents.
