I just smoked a very good cigar and I am hoping to get your thoughts or feedback on it.
The EP Carillo Short Run 2012, I think it was the Reinados. It was a gift so I don't know all the stats on it, but I really liked it.
The first third started off solid. Decent taste, a little peppery. A little light on the smoke.
The second third is where this cigar started to really open up. The flavor came out, more pepper a little hay, yet it maintained a solid tobacco flavor, not overbearing in any one profile. The smoke increased to beautiful white plumes.
The last third is where I really loved this cigar. Huge plumes of smoke. Continued great taste, and never got harsh or bitter.
I smoked this cigar as I was driving around the city. It effects the burn when I have the cigar hanging out of the window, but the construction was good enough that int maintained a fairly consistent burn throughout.
I would definitely recommend this cigar. I have had an Carrillo before, but this Short Run was by far a better smoke.
What are your thoughts on this cigar?
