Quick Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Encore Majestic

The Encore Majestic is the penultimate cigar smoking experience for me. Good looking, well constructed with a very good draw and burn, this smoking experience left me wanting nothing more than what I had. Easy to smoke, enjoyable to my palette and relaxing yet interesting, the Majestic maintained it’s great construction without need for touch-ups while producing a nice amount of bluish white smoke. The flavors were there right from the start with great progression and a weaving type quality that kept me very interested. It hits all my sweet spots of earthiness, chocolate and coffee, citrus and even a bit of nuttiness mixed in from time to time. I don’t buy a lot of boxes of cigars because I really do like variety but I dare say this is one cigar that will have a permanent place on my list of box worthy cigars.

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Selección Oscuro Nacionales

“I found the first third to be average in spite of a nice start of simple tobacco and oak. While the middle was very good, the finish quickly turned south. My mouth tasted like an ashtray before it was all over. With two thirds of this cigar not making the cut, I won’t be looking to try another.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Joined by our panelist Jack, we conquered almost the entire festival.

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Edición Limitada 2011 “Dark Rituals”

“This was a great cigar with nice bold flavors and great performance technically. My only complaint was that I wish the final third had offered a bit more, but that’s minor and I would certainly have some more. I could easily recommend this as a medium bodied late evening smoke with great dark espresso flavors and wood background.” -Emmett (rhetorik)
