E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut Brillantes (Robusto) by EP Carrillo Cigars

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 436: 1.75-Mile Cigar
Divinos, Dominican Republic, E.P. Carrillo, E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut, Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade, EP Carrillo Cigars, Toro Well, it was a short and sweet Cigar Walk with this E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut Brillantes (Robusto) by EP Carrillo Cigars… and it was my first time with this Vitola.

What a difference a couple of millimeters make… this was a different experience from the Toro Vitola I smoked in March (2021). The Robusto had a pretty open draw that delivered light dry smoke that didn’t hit the buttery creaminess that I had experienced before.

Oh well, I have a few more… let’s see how she smokes in a month or so. I just might have to stock up on the Toros instead.
