E.P. Carrillo Encore

96-Rated: #1 Cigar of 2018

Description

Can I get an encore, do you want more? 

Way back at the IPCPR in 2016, E.P. Carrillo teased the second release in their Family line, the Encore. Since then, we’ve been waiting. Here’s a quick refresher course for those lagging behind: the first release in Carrillo’s Family Series, La Historia, was named the #2 Cigar of the Year and received an astounding 95-rating. Needless to say, Encore’s got some big boots to fill.

Here’s the good news: we most eagerly sampled a batch of Encores a few weeks back, and the feedback was unanimous. This cigar is an instant classic. The secret’s in the sauce: Encore features all Nicaraguan tobacco that’s been aged and married in tercios together for two years. The result is a balance and elegance unrivaled in the industry. Encore encapsulates complexity, delivering a luscious profile ripe with soft tobacco notes, slight cedar, baking spices, and hints of sweetness. Destined for 90+ ratings, get aboard Encore now.

We told you this one was destined for greatness! E.P. Carrillo Encore has received an unrivaled 96-point rating and was named the #1 Cigar of 2018, noting: "It’s elegant, refined and nuanced from first puff to last, but is also the culmination of a long career in tobacco and the result of a man who was never afraid to follow his instincts."

Firmly constructed, easy drawing, even-burning, consistent, smoke. Complex flair profile embodying tobacco, earth, mellow cedar, and even - dare I say it - some dark fruits on the back palate. I had one given to me pre-pandemic but had memory banked it for future reference. I enjoyed it then. But, tonight, it is so much better than I recalled. It’s such an easygoing cigar that keeps unveiling different an unexpected flavors. The middle third is sublime. Treat yourself to this beauty! I had it with a terrific Bonded Bourbon. I’ve seen others on here compare it to Oliva V Melanio — one of my absolute favorite cigars — but I find it different. Perhaps in a more mellow profile but, no less worthy. Buy with confidence!!

Very nice smoke with a great flavor profile, great construction, smooth draw and it's really well put together. Great paired with a rye whiskey neat or poured over a big rock to let the flavors out. The spice of the smoke is a great compliment to the rye spice. I find myself choosing this one when I'm at the local shop to smoke in house and I'll certainly order more in the future from CI!

Notes of cedar and toffee and the burn was immaculate. Very deserving of its high ranking and I recommend.

Dry and mild. Medium firm feel with a tendency to go out. Not as good as I had hoped, and too mild for me. I am a 30 year cigar smoker with a preference for richer and stronger cigars like the Padron Aniversario 1964 series.

When I recently made an order of several boxes of cigars I asked for four packs of five Encore Majestick Robusto. These cigars taste is wonderful, excellent roll, draw and burn. This Encore cigars are, together with La Historia Doña Elena, smokes masterpieces.

These are absolutely fantastic. They have the smoothness of Oliva Serie V with a bit of spice to them. Nothing overpowering, just a nice flavor of pepper spice. The draw is a bit light at the start but it comes in perfectly about the 1/4 point. I highly recommend you to try. It's just an enjoyable smoke.

Great smoke. Very smooth with a nice, but not overpowering pepper spice. They burned very even and had a perfect draw. It's definitely one of the best sticks I've had in awhile. Highly recommend.
