Epifania by El Primer Mundo Cigars

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 49: 2.0-Mile Cigar
Ecuadorian, El Primer Mundo, Epifania, Sean Williams, Toro If I had to declare a cigar that defines elegance, it would be the Epifania by El Primer Mundo Cigars (Sean Williams). The flavors from the delicate Ecuadorian wrapper were a good way to ease into the day.

Feeling fairly light in weight (feel in the hand), as I suspected, the Epifania in Toro wasn’t a very long-smoking cigar lasting only for the first 1.75-Miles of my morning Cigar-Walk.

The next time I smoke the Epifania, I think it will be indoors.

I was looking forward to this cigar today; it’s been a while. I was more curious to see if my palette had developed enough to appreciate this cigar yet.

This is probably my third Epifania cigar by El Primer Mundo. My first impressions weren’t all that inspired after hearing about how great and classic this cigar was or “is”.

I’ve been enjoying some pretty full-flavored cigars lately so I thought this would be a good changeup. It sure fits well in my mouth while I’m typing. Hmmm, maybe I’m on to something.

At the first draw, the cigar has an open draw through my punch-cut. The smoke pours out generously, I’m hard-pressed to identify any particular flavors other that I have a mouthful of smooth chewy smoke and there’s something that brings a little subtle bitter aftertaste.

At the halfway point I determine that the predominant flavor is creamy wood, yep, wood with a creamy smooth quality; along with the Ecuadorian Habano wrapper having a dry paper-mache feel on my lips might make this a good fit for when I’m writing.

After realizing that I had been powering through this I had to put it down during the last third and let it cool down. Everything starts to ramp up, but that could be because I’m fanning the flame so to speak.

I can’t wait to have another. I’ve had these since July (2018) so we’ll see what some more time will do to my developing palate.
