E.P. Carrillo Elencos Elites Cigar Review
This 6×54 stick features a dark brown dry slightly toothy wrapper with a fine sandpaper feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, even spongy give and rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a good draw with minimal mild bodied smoke output showing a creamy leather and long smooth finish of the same. The first third burns wonky and very quickly, bringing body up a tick to medium, keeping the same flavors and adding a touch of earth through the finish. The stick is getting very hot and squishy all the way back to the band already. Half way in at 25 minutes flavors mellow a bit to mild-medium, dropping the creamy leather leaving a soft nutty earth. Ending at just 40 minutes where the last third from the band back got very hot and washed out, flavors remained the same. Thank you very much to Ronnie Murphy for providing this sample for review!
