E.P. Carrillo Elencos: The Continuation of a Masterpiece

As of this moment my favorite cigar is the EPC Elencos. My favorite cigar changes from week to week and sometimes from day to day. I've diagnosed myself as a streak smoker. I like variety but often there are only a handful of cigars that scratch that "itch". At times I have smoked only one cigar line for days straight. Currently the Elencos by Ernesto Perez Carrillo is that cigar. I can't get enough of that taste.

The Elencos is very unique; there is no cigar in the industry that is like it. It is essentially the 2010 Limited Edicion on a regular release. I loved the 2010, and I was slightly concerned when I heard it was going to be a regular run cigar that it would lose something in the transition. The regular production does not disappoint.

The E.P. Carrillo Elencos has this wonderful sweet gram cracker quality. It is full bodied smoke with lots of complexity and some subtle nuances that present themselves at various points of the smoke. Woodsy, nutty, cherry, and wine notes are all present at various stages of the cigar along with that amazing, ever present gram cracker flavor. There is a nice kick when the cigar is retro-nasally exhaled. The EPC Elencos is a bold, flavorful cigar that keeps me smoking them back to back. Get a box today before I smoke them all.
