Great Cigars
These 2nds are better than a lot of the normal cigars. Great taste and holds together well.

First; CI is great. Best customer service, best pricing, best selection. Now: I've bought expensive, cheap, flavored, strong-mild, etc. I look back at my last years orders and these keep showing up time and time again. E. P. Carrillo is a master. These 2nds are unsurpassed. And what a great price. Construction is very important to me along with taste. If you haven't tried them you're missing out on a great deal and a great smoke.

Will Purchase More
I was a little leery based on the 'Pick a size, we'll send you whatever' policy. But since the cigars were cheap, and I'm not too picky i went for it. Got some of the best cigars I've ever had. I originally bought them to share with friends who stopped by- I've since hidden them for personal use. Will purchase more.

burn and draw issues
These are really hit or miss. Most have issues with the burn and some have issues with a very tight draw. Flavors are still there if you can manage to work through the above issues. I've deconstructed a couple and found multiple thick stems. Good to fill up the humi, but not an effortless smoke.

Great Smoke!
i usually smoke E.P. Carrillo 1st and always great, but I wanted to get some E.P.s for fishing and golfing. I now prefer to smoke the 2nds for everything. I cannot tell the difference and they are priced right!

Best deal ever
I kept coming back to these little beauties and continued to be delighted by the taste. I had actually forgotten what they were and where I had gotten them, but researched my account at CI and voila. Burn evenly and cool, medium to full-bodied, never a harsh puff. Is there a better deal out there? I doubt it.

Good construction, good flavor
I love seconds, but you have to be willing to take pot-luck. These seem to be a habano wrapper, medium to strong body. They burn nice and straight, and have a full, enjoyable flavor.

Customer Testimonials
I ordered a bundle of robustos and I'm pretty sure I received the smaller toro of the La Historia smokes. Just over six inches and around a 50 gauge. I am very happy with these. Excellent smoke!
A few had too tight of a draw, but other than that these are almost perfect. Most only have cosmetic issues, but smoke perfectly.
I have ordered these twice and both time was pleased. The first time I received a very nice small large gauge cigar that was very good. The second time was a typical EP Gordo. As always it was enjoyable. Noted that the price for the Gordo gauge has gone up $5. These must be catching on.
Extremely good smoke for the price...hands down to EP! I have smoked his blends for years and this one is very good.
Forget the firsts, save your money and buy the seconds. Unless your the type that has to have the beauty queen. These cigars are ugly but they sure do work. I'll be going back for thirds.
They are hit and miss as far as the length and wrapper. The Maduro (if your lucky enough to get them) is fantastic! My last three orders of the Gordo's unfortunately have been naturals.
Great smoke for the price!
Love these!!! Great buy if your like me and prefer a medium to full bodied with smooth and spicy undertones.
Great smoke! I personally have a new favorite, not only for seconds, these cigars are better than most of the full price cigars out there.
Good smoke for the price. The Churchill size is hit and miss. Some smoke perfectly and some have a tendency to canoe and burn hot. But when they burned right they were excellent. Overall I find them to be good value. Better taste than most first run cigars from other manufacturers.
Small flat flavor well made not for me 3 out of 10
I've been a big time fan of Ernie's stuff for YEARS. These 2nds are no different. I ordered the toro size and got the original Carrillo line with the Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper. Now, I will say these are not the prettiest smokes you will ever see, they are veiny and have some odd colors variations on the wrapper. Very easy to see why these are seconds. But, other than appearance these are typical top notch Carrillo quality. A very robust blend for a light colored cigar and a ton of the smoke. The smoking experience is outstanding, it's just not a cigar you would whip out at a wedding because of the aesthetic issues.
5 out of 10 where not good, these looked like apprentice rolled, there was one that looked like they forgot to put the wrapper on
Fantastic. Let's keep these quiet so I can enjoy them for a long time to come...Great flavor, copious amounts of smoke from each puff and a superb value from one of the top in the industry!
Big time flavor for a small time price! Back up the truck boys these cigars are fantastic! I got the maduro torpedos and am 100% satisfied!
