Quick Smoke: E.P. Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 Nitidos

6 May 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

It’s easy to see why this tobacco combination became the latest limited edition from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. A sometimes punchy, sometimes subtle treat, this complex cigar presents an array of flavors in a smooth blend. The dry looking Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper covers filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. My only complaint was a somewhat loose draw, particularly noticeable in such a large cigar. But that’s minor. At about $8.50, this cigar is a terrific experience.

Verdict = Buy.

    Just wanted to add that since writing this I have smoked a couple of the Short Run 2012 Invictos size and it is terrific as well. A great cigar to sit back and really enjoy.

    I've never had an E.P. Carrillo I didn't like! And I can't wait to try this one, thanks George E. for the review.

    Have not smoked the Short Run Invictors, but have really liked the rest of the EPC line.
