Quick Smoke: E.P. Carrillo Edición Inaugural 2009

4 Jan 2014

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.”


Going on five years later, this Inaugural release from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is still a stellar cigar. Time has mellowed it, but it’s still a medium-bodied smoke built with an Ecuadorian wrapper, dual Dominican and Nicaraguan binders, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It’s well-balanced, with a cedar and cream core complemented by hints of coffee, honey, and spice. Construction is immaculate, but mostly it’s the balance that’s so impressive.

Verdict = Buy.
