E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut El Decano Cigar Review

This 6×60 stick features a tan wrapper with minima veins, tight invisible seams, a nice double cap, heavy dense firm pack, slick smooth oily feel and a mild woody aroma. First light reveals a decent draw with mild-medium flavors of a creamy smooth slightly sweet woodiness and a finish that moves to a little earth. Smoke output is very minimal. The first third burns slowly, with a bad burnline like most other huge rg cigars. Flavors are unchanged, very mild, the filler requires multiple puffs just to stay lit and the construction sucks. 45 minutes in the 2nd third finally starts, showing no flavor changes, just adding some smoke output. It’s required a touchup and is still burning unevenly. Ending at 1:20 where nearly the last two inches got very hot and mushy, the whole stick proved mild and consistent. Thank you very much to viewer Mike for sending this in!
