E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic & Celestial by EP Carrillo Cigars




Overall, for my first time, I liked it. I had a great smoking experience with this cigar. Yes, I’ll have another, please.

The pre-light cold draw provided airy milk chocolate flavors. As soon as I lit it, it just took off with mouthfuls of chewy smoky with an almost perfect draw that provided plenty of smooth dry earthy toast flavors with a little white pepper on the retrohale.

At the halfway point and I’m loving my mouthfuls of voluminous rich thick creamy smoky leather; the white pepper spice remains on the retrohale.

At the last third, I detect some strength is creeping up. I think I’ll order my turkey Rubin sandwich now.

I also notice some soft spots on the last third, that does not affect the remaining Finger Burner of a cigar
