Epifania by El Primer Mundo

12/01/2018
I was looking forward to this cigar today; it’s been awhile. 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 change up. 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 thru 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.
