E.P. Carrillo Dark Rituals Toro Cigar Review

E.P. Carrillo Dark Rituals Toro Cigar Review – This 6×52 stick features a very dark chocolate firmly packed thick wrapper with medium veins, tight visible seams, sloppy double cap, oily toothy texture and faint cocoa and earth aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw, almost unsmokeable but putting off plentiful mid-medium bodied smoke with flavors of a soft earth and vanilla with a very short clean finish. The first third continues the same poor performance and low body.  Hitting the 1/2 way point 35 minutes in, the ash drops in a solid 1/3rd chunk, the draw marginally improves but flavors change very little just adding a soft milk chocolate to the mix.  Ending just over an hour where it got warm and very squishy, the last third showed no changes.

    I have found in many cases – some relief with a tight draw can be found by removing the band(s).

    Hi Bryan. I sent this to you a few years ago along with the Tat Tattoo. I got a 10 pack of the Dark Rituals from CI. I encountered the same issues you had with 4 of them. Thanks for the review.
