EP Carrillo Short Run Churchill
To make a long story short, these handsome devils were slated to become the inital release by E.P. Carrillo 3 years ago. But at the time, it wasn’t quite what E.P. was looking for. (he’s a real stickler for perfection) Instead, they remained nestled in the aging rooms, marrying into delicious morsels. Once I sampled the cigars at hand, I bought the whole lot before thinking twice. At play you’ll find a gorgeous Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, concealing a long-filler core of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. Married over time, this extensively aged recipe is unlike any other of E.P. Carrillo’s creations to date. Remaining medium to full-bodied, the senses are greeted by a barrage of uber-smooth smoke, refined in character and highly enjoyable. A toasty tobacco core, mellowed by its long nap, complements hints of coffee, oak, leather, and cream before a semi-sweet finish. A once and done offering, these rare handmades are packaged in attractive 10-count boxes, bound to sell out in no time.
