Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6

“If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don’t disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“At first, I really didn’t know if I was going to enjoy this one. The flavors were very good but the finish in the first third was throwing me off. Once the finish settled though, I really enjoyed this one. I’d definitely smoke this one again. The perfect pairing for me would be nice smooth bourbon or dark beer.” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

“If the burn hadn’t been so impossible to deal with, this would have been quite a decent cigar. The blend had some pleasant flavors, and the smoke output was on point. Unfortunately, the burn just knocked it down several notches for me. I’m hopeful that this was just a fluke, and the other sticks burn perfectly, but mine just did not.” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

“Overall this is a decent breakfast smoke with no true transitions. If you’re looking for something to kill some time and not really looking for something complex. This is a nice smoke to pair with coffee. I prefer something with a little more character, even for my breakfast smoke. All in all, this is close but no cigar… Get it? Lol. -_-” -Jonathan R. (J.Lee)

“While the cigar’s appearance didn’t impress me at all initially, this was a clear cut case of never judging a book by its cover. The cigar provided a wide array of flavors and transitions and the end result was a highly enjoyable cigar from start to finish. I would definitely smoke it again.” -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

“The final third of this cigar really upped the enjoyment factor. It took it from good to very good in my opinion. I have always been a fan of cigars with many transitions, and this one did not let me down and threw in a completely unexpected and unique flavor, that made the cigar a true star. The strength and body stayed right in the medium range and can be enjoyed by anyone. The flavors would go well with morning coffee as well as a lighter bodied beer that won’t overrun it. I am really looking forward to finding out what this cigar is and recommend you try it when the secret is out! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
