EP Carrillo Short Run 2012 CigarsDeciding to purchase the EP Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 cigar often comes down to what people have to say about the experience. Good news with this stick: reviewers have nothing but good things to say! The EP Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 cigar is a fabulous blend of rich tobaccos that please from the pre-light to the finish.

This stogie is often referred to fondly as a Frankenstein blend of tobaccos combining two other popular EP Carrillo sticks. The wrapper is the same as others with the New Wave Connecticut with its rich Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade leaf. The fillers and binder are of the same family as the Core Line Maduro with its robust Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Connecticut broadleaf tobaccos. This line of sticks is considered a limited edition with only 24,000 cigars produced.

The pre-light experience is absolutely mouthwatering leaving the smoker with the promise of good things to come. First, the wrapper does not have the common smoothness associated with many Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. Instead, the wrapper is a light brown that reviewers claim is rustic in appearance. This is well packed and is firm to the touch providing an unswerving feel to the stogie. It is set off by the stunning band of white and gold.

Taking a whiff of this cigar offers the smoker a light tobacco smell with the slightest hints of cedar. Towards the foot, strong spicy overtones and an earthy aroma give a hint of the experience to come. The cold draw is nothing short of phenomenal. There is a sweet and profound cedar combined with red spices. Even before the first light, this stogie is tantalizing to all of the senses.

A slight pepper taste is evident with the first couple of puffs, but that quickly fades and transcends in to a nutmeg, cedar, and dark chocolate flavor. There is total consistency with this limited edition stick. Thick smoke stays white and provides huge clouds of aroma to please the nose. The flaky ash remains true to form throughout the experience, and the EP Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 cigar stays lit without a single touch up needed.

By the time the smoker gets to the second third, the earlier flavors have merged into one appetizing flavor experience, and a smooth cashew taste has entered in. Reviewers seem to really appreciate that there is a lack of nicotine flavor with the EP Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 cigar allowing the sweet, spicy tastes to take center stage. The combination of flavors and the consistency of the experience create an hour of pure bliss that will not soon be forgotten.

The final third is as superb as the rest of the stogie. The flavors stay strong and the consistency associated with this stick has made it one for the personal humidors. The smoothness and flavors make it easy to enjoy any time of day without a nicotine aftertaste that can often ruin the experience. Reviewers claim the EP Carrillo NWC Short Run 2012 cigar truly pleases any taste preference.
