The E.P. Carillo Cardinal Natural 56 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 combined to meld with the peppery Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper to become the cigar that dreams are made of.


Beneath the understated and classy gold, red, and black band, the smooth honeyed-oak colored wrapper displays minimal veining and teases the lips with spice during the cold draw.  Inhaling with just the right amount of resistance primes the foot to readily accept a flame, and soon the cigar begins building a solid ash while pumping out intense flavors of brown sugar and charred wood with plenty of spice. The smoke smooths out at the sweet spot, but it continues to build in complexity and strength until it reaches its peak about the halfway mark, with a profile awash in black pepper, sweet biscuit, and dark fruit prevalent through to the cool burning nub.


Just in case you are 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. For deepest satisfaction, pair with spiced rum, a hammock, and a warm afternoon. Just be prepared to stay put.
