Carrillo’s latest masterpiece.
E.P. Carrillo has the Midas touch when it comes to crafting his exquisite blends. From his original cigar, La Gloria Cubana to his new-ish #2 cigar of 2014 La Historia, Carrillo has cemented his status as a living legend in the cigar industry. Up next from this bona fide superstar comes E.P. Carrillo Limited Edition 2015, perhaps his crowning achievement.
E.P. Carrillo Limited Edition 2015 is the company’s 6th annual limited edition release and uses an age-old Cuban fermentation technique to ripen the wrapper. The Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is aged by folding 25 leaves around the center vein which aids in smoothing out the flavor. Completing the blend is a robust mix of Nicaraguan long-fillers, delivering a pleasing medium to full-bodied profile. Greeting you off the bat will be notes of red pepper and baking spices before the blend progresses to include nuances of leather, wood, and hay. If you enjoy E.P. Carrillo’s cigars or are a maduro lover, you owe it to yourself to take this latest masterpiece for a spin.
