Quick Smoke: E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2013

15 Jun 2013



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.”

There are times I wonder whether Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is a cigar blender or a magician. I’m not sure he has a peer when it comes to turning out excellent cigar after excellent cigar. His Short Run 2013 is no exception. It kicks off with a combination of citrus and exotic spices, and that enticing, enjoyable combination pretty much runs from beginning to end. Made in just three sizes—Robusto (4.9 x 50), Corona Gorda (5.9 x 52), and a massive Double Robusto (6.25 x 60)—it features the trademark EPC quality construction, burn, and draw. With only 1,500 boxes of each vitola, this Short Run won’t be on the shelves long. Don’t miss it.

Verdict = Buy.
