E.P. Carrillo La Historia Robusto


 E.P. Carrillo, EP Carrillo, La Historia, Mexican San Andres, Nicaraguan
A clip and a snip and I’m off for a new experience with the E.P. Carrillo La Historia Robusto cigar. With my first cold draw, I welcomed barnyard aromas and delighted that this is usually a good indication of things to come.

Once lit smoke pours out rich creamy earthy leather, but none or very little spice on the retrohale.

At the end of the first third… there she is, pepper spice on the singing my nose hairs.


Oh yeah, creamy smooth deep earthy flavored with the spice now present and lasting on the finish and on the retrohale. The E.P. Carrillo La Historia has all the flavor components that I love in a cigar; earthy, leather, cocoa, coffee all riding in on chewy smoke. If this sounds good to you, get one of these.
