Cigar Review - E.P. Carrillo Allegiance
Review by Luc Blanchard, Official MMC Reviewer (@mysticks35mm)
E.P. Carrillo - Allegiance
Size - Robusto 5x50
Wrapper – Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder – Nicaraguan
Filler – Nicaraguan
Fresh roasted coffee bean
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.
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.
