altWe are mixing full-bodied with mild today on Puff.com.  To begin, we will go bold with the E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series.  We will then finish up with the mild CAO Flavours Bella Vanilla.

E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series Elites

The Elencos Edicion Limitada 2010 from E.P. Carrillo was a hit for the brand, and the Elencos Series was produced to build off of that success.  In fact, the Elencos Series is basically the brand’s popular, yet limited cigar converted into a regularly produced release.  Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has never really let me down in the past, so I am expecting a quality experience from this Elencos Series Elites that I am about to light up.

The E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series Elites measures 6 x 54.  There are also two other sizes in the line: the 5.2 x 50 Don Rubino and the 6.2 x 52 Acto Mayor.  The cigar's filler is a combination of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.  Its binder is Dominican as well, and the cigar is finished off by a Brazilian Habano wrapper.  The Elencos Series line is considered to fall into the full-bodied category of strength.

The Elencos Series looks good thanks to the classy band near the head of the cigar.  It features the E.P Carrillo name and logo over a black, red, and white color scheme.  The cigar itself has a chocolate brown color with a few large veins that are visible.  There is a good amount of oil that is visible under light, and the cigar feels firm to the touch.  It has spicy scent and a cold taste of raisins before being lit.

Once lit, the Elencos Series Elites burns flawlessly.  The cigar stays even until the end, with no need for any touch-ups or re-lighting from my lighter.  The draw is good and it produces solid ash that is light gray.
