|#15 E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2010
It is hard to believe we have completed half of T30 Cigars in 31 Days” – my review of the Top 30 Cigars for 2010. It is now time to get to the cream of the crop – the Top 15
Slotting in at #15 is E.P. Carrillo’s Short Run 2010. This is a cigar by former La Gloria Cubana master, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. The Short Run series is meant to be produced in a limited batch on a yearly basis. This is the 2010 edition.
The blend consists of an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The flavor profile contains the complexity one comes to expect from a Carrillo stick – nuts, pepper, oak-like wood notes, and even some sweetness that seemed to be on the cinnamon side. The draw and burn were flawless each time I had this stick. Overall, a nice medium to full cigar in both strength and body.
I will post a more detailed review in the near future.
