E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic | Selected by Cigar Aficionado 2018 #1 Cigar Of The Year – 96 Rating!

Rated 96 and awarded the prestigious title of #1 Cigar of 2018. A Nicaraguan Puro from one of the most respected Dominican cigar companies in the business, you'll be cheering for the second E.P. Carrillo Encore as soon as you finish your first. Yes, all references to a musical encore in both this description and the cigar's frontmark are intentional. What, you didn't know that years ago a young Ernesto Perez-Carrillo was hoping to be a famous jazz drummer before coming back to his roots as a fourth-generation cigar-maker? Well, now you do. Treating tobacco blending as much an art as a science, Carrillo sourced a wide variety of fine Nicaraguan longleaf aged in tercios, meaning tied into bundles within royal palm leaves, resulting in a smooth yet powerful smoke you'll want to revisit again and again.
On occasion, the look and feel of a cigar speaks directly to the performance that the lucky smoker is about to experience. Heavily laden with succulent tobacco, the box-pressed barrel of this fine stick wears its cream-colored foot ribbon and dual copper and gold bands with confidence, reflective of its creator's skill as developed through years of rigorous practice and training. The toothy, oily wrapper contains the aroma of rich tobacco and crisp fresh hay, thrilling the nose while the tongue detects a flourish of pepper during the cold draw test. Beginning dry and with deep notes of turned earth and charred oak, when first lit, the cigar's flavor soon brightens and expands to include black tea and sweet cream. Building slowly into full-bodied flavor, the strength remains a firm medium even as a crescendo of leather, citrus, and caramel washes over the palate.
Only a virtuoso of tobacco such as Ernesto Perez-Carrillo could create a monumental smoke like the E.P. Carrillo Encore and still have it priced starting at less than ten bucks apiece. These premium cigars are a ticket to taste, relaxation, and pure enjoyment, so pour yourself a favorite beverage, put on some swinging tunes, and sit back. Just don't be surprised when you light up another.
