REVIEW

Another offering from the July My Monthly Cigars Box, we note a stunning looking cigar. This box pressed (slightly tapered) cigar is covered in an oily, leather like wrapper that is void of any prominent veins. The pre ignition olfactory is very fragrant and offers raisins alongside some fresh barn hay. A straight cut to the perfectly placed cap reveals an unobstructed draw.

Green foot ribbon removed, we toast/light and welcomed some introductory notes of aromatic toasted coffee and creamy nougat. The retro has a nasal tickle and moves us into the finish, which is already quite rich.

Green foot ribbon removed, we toast/light and welcomed some introductory notes of aromatic toasted coffee and creamy nougat. The retro has a nasal tickle and moves us into the finish, which is already quite rich.

Getting into the 1st inch and the retrohale has calmed down as we continue and note an additional leather, bordering floral quality joining in as the coffee slowly morphs into something closer to cocoa.

Into the 2/3 we see a medium cigar developing as a toasted almond joins the already complex list of flavors. A sweet raw/toasted sugar also appears deep in the finish and adds to the rich mouth taste. The burn is nothing short of textbook as a light stacking ash grows on thin and delicate ash fringe.

Slow burning, we move past the halfway marker and note some consistency with a really nice toasted and sweet mixture on the pallet. Getting past the 3/3, we continue with consistent notes as the strength moves toward full and sees the addition of a faint but toasted cedar and similarly faint citrus. To the nub and the conclusion of this exemplary cigar.

Strong and toasted flavor’s border pepper and culminates on the pallet to provide a rich, sweet and long lasting experience centered on the mouth. Why is E.P. Carrillo always on the top of the charts? This is a fantastic example of why that might be.
