E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Series Natural Cigars
E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Series Natural
The E.P. Carillo Cardinal Natural cigar fills the one remaining gap left by the other fantastic smokes coming out of the E.P.C. Cigar company. From the mild and oh-so-tasty New Wave Connecticut to the medium-strength Core Line and Inch and even the more robust Elencos, there had not been an E.P. Carillo branded stick aimed squarely at the heart of those who favor full-bore strength and taste in their cigars. The Cardinal Natural corrects this, being billed as the most full-bodied in their lineup and boy does it deliver. A rich-n-creamy blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos was expertly blended to meld with the peppery Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper to become the cigar that dreams are made of.
Just in care you're unfamiliar with what Ernesto Perez-Carillo is capable of when it comes to full bodied smokes, check out the La Gloria Cubana Serie N and Serie R. The Cardinal Natural is easily on the same level and might even be Carillo's best ever with a profile awash in brown sugar, charred wood, sweet biscuit, and dark fruit prevalent from the beginning through to the cool burning nub. For deepest satisfaction, pair with a spiced rum, a hammock, and a warm afternoon. Just be prepared to stay put.
