Review of E.P Carrillo Short Run 2015 Vencedores
A medium to full-bodied cigar, the Short Run 2015 Vencedores has a unique Criollo 98 leaf wrapper from Jalapa. The wrapper is dark and it contrasts nicely with the bright band. This, combined with the lightness of the cigar, makes it appealing at first glance. Unlit, the cigar is earthy and has a coffee aroma.
Once lit, the Short Run 2015 cigar has strong cedar flavors. There are also nutmeg, cinnamon and licorice notes. A wood note is noticeable, and remains throughout the whole cigar. The flavor of nutmeg and cinnamon start to fade, until a flavor of dried apricot reveals itself. The flavors of this cigar are unique and very pleasant.
This cigars were released during the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show.
