 Dominican Republic, E.P. Carrillo, E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro, Mexican San Andrés Oscuro, Small Churchill And… I was feeling all smart and sassy for choosing and smoking this deep rich beauty today in this E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro in Small Churchill.

This was a true joy to smoke as I luxuriated amongst the chatter at the cigar lounge today… in my “Zone”! I can’t wait to smoke this again!

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 122: 2.0-Mile Cigar
I can tell when a cigar qualifies for the TupperDor… when I’m starting to crave it; I know its fate in the Cigar-Rotation. It’s been pretty near love at first puff with the E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro.

From the dark Mexican San Andrés Oscuro wrapper come earthy tobacco flavors that I crave along with some pepper spice and it’s affordable too.

Come to find out… the Mexican San Andrés wrapper used on this blend was also used in the La Historia another one of my favorite E.P. Carrillo cigars.

The E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro has a very good chance of becoming a Box-Worthy cigar…

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 66: 2.0-Mile Cigar
Dominican Republic, E.P. Carrillo, E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro, Mexican San Andrés Oscuro, Small Churchill This morning was the first time with this Vitola. I first experienced the E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro back in November with the Robusto Gordo (5.0″ x 54) And, enjoyed it so much that I had to try this smaller version… Why Not?

… And, it didn’t disappoint me.

I can’t wait to smoke this again!
