The EP Carrillo Seleccion Oscuro was unveiled at the last year’s IPCPR. It is the first time the brand has ever made use of a San Andres Oscuro wrapper. You can buy it in six different sizes: Robusto Gordo, Nacionales, Small Churchill, Especial No. 6, Pirmades Royal, and Dinamicos. For this review, I tried the 5 ½ x 44 Nacionales.

Until March of 2009, Ernesto Perez Carrillo worked under General Cigar’s eye, helping to oversee all aspects of the La Gloria Cubana brand. After heavy influence from his son, Ernesto III and daughter Lissette, he left General Cigar to pursue a family-run boutique brand.

The EPC Cigar Company has been nothing short of fantastic since its debut and is quickly becoming one of the better known cigar brands in the USA. Until the release of the E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series (which is actually the Edicion Limitada 2010, same cigars) I had only had the beginning Inaugural line cigars.

Since the company’s creation in 2010, E.P. Carillo has released an annual “Short Run” series in three vitolas. The 2012 edition is based on the New Wave Connecticut core line, and according to Ernesto Perez-Carrillo the line is a cross between the NWC line and the Core Maduro line. The 2012 Short Run Series has the same Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper as the NWC line, but uses the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper found on the Core Maduro line as a binder.

I love cigars. Be it mild Connecticut Shade or spicy Corojo, my taste runs the gamut of cigar flavor profiles. But I am also a very picky cigar smoker. This can lead to exuberant exclamations of praise, or acts of vocal vilification. I’m passionate about cigars and I’m never at a loss of words when asked for my opinion. So, when we talked about reviewing cigars with Denis, I warned him upfront that anything could happen. He was cool with that. Now that the disclaimer of out of the way, I can proceed with my review of the E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut, Brillantes.

After a week of fighting a cold and not being able to enjoy a nice cigar, I had the chance to light up a couple cigars this weekend. Saturday morning I woke nice and early and decided to start the day off with this cigar. E.P. Carrillo cigars are making their way into stores around my area, so these are still rare for the most part.
