Review - E.P. Carrillo Edición Inaugural 2009 - 93/100

The first cigar out from the E.P. Carrillo brand is simply awesome. Not only is it unique in flavor, it is featuring a blend of rare tobaccos used in unique ways. It is a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican filler aged fro two years, tied together with two binders - Dominican and Nicaraguan - both aged for 5 years and as an icing on the cake, it has a very beautiful and rare golden wrapper from Ecuador which has been aged for 3 years.

The cigar looks and feels beautiful and tastes excellent. It is a medium bodied medley of ever changing flavors which create a complex and unique profile. Within its creamy bosom it holds tones of wood, leather and cedar, reaching out for some fruits - perhaps from the citrus family.

This honestly is something you would expect form a legend like Ernesto. I would not have it any other way. Read more on the E.P Carrillo brand and the man himself from an interview or go and buy the cigars. It's worth the money.
