Quick Smoke: E.P. Carrillo Original Rebel Rebellious 52

14 Aug 2016

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.”


Considering most of the rest of the revamped E.P. Carrillo offerings feature classic packaging, upon inspecting the band of the brand new Original Rebel maduro line, I thought this must be a new value or bundle stick. It isn’t. The 5.5-inch, 52-ring gauge cigar sells for just under $10. Rebellious is the name given to the maduro blend, as opposed to the Maverick, which features an Ecuadorian wrapper. Rebellious has a dark Broadleaf wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Nicaraguan filler. The result is a rich cigar full of earth, powdered cocoa, subtle wood, and just a hint of red pepper spice. When it comes to flavor and construction, I was impressed.

Verdict = Buy.
