E.P. Carrillo flies high with this latest release.

Ernesto Perez-Carrillo founded the El Credito Cigar Company in Miami, Florida and became the manufacturer of the highly popular La Gloria Cubana cigars. Born in Cuba, he mastered the art of cigar making and is one of the best blenders in the industry. He has since moved on to form another fantastic cigar operation, EPC Cigar Company, and with that the E.P. Carrillo brand was born.

E.P. Carrillo's cigars have an amazing reputation. Their blends use premium, well-aged tobaccos that fit any enthusiast's taste preference. For their Cardinal Series, the same principles are set forth: well-balanced blend, quality tobaccos, and attention to detail. Where the Cardinal Series differs is that the blend is more intense. Much stronger than the rest of his portfolio, Cardinal Series is loaded with ligero from Nicaragua and the Dominican. The blend is then finished off with a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Notes of espresso, spice, and hints of cherry are present and potent. Make sure you sit down for this one.

totally disappointed on this purchase..this is not the caliber of cigar e.p. carrillo makes...price was reason for purchase... plus reputation, they always offer great cigars, at prices that are on the high side, so when a new cigar and great price was offered...easy choice.. did not expect to be so disappointed...ring size is not 60 either,more like 54...

E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Maduro

This cigar features immaculate construction and a dark, oily wrapper. Zero soft spots were detected throughout and the wrapper was applied seamlessly. Once lit, powerful notes of espresso and spice swarm the palate along with a slight sweetness from the wrapper. The performance of this cigar in terms of draw and burn were highly manageable. It produces thick clouds of intense smoke that filled the room resulting in a satisfying aroma. E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Maduro is a strong cigar with a complex flavor profile yet remains balanced due to a harmonious blend of tobaccos. This is one of E.P. Carrillo’s strongest releases and quite possibly his finest. Certainly a cigar that stands out from the crowd.
