Those in search of full-flavored, heavily fermented, box-pressed bliss need look no further. The EP Carrillo Triumph Pack is here, and it contains what many are calling "Ernesto Perez-Carrillo's Greatest Hits."
Encased in a felt-lined Spanish Cedar case that has been adorned in gold, this 3-pack looks just as top-shelf as the premium long-filler tobacco tucked neatly inside. The contents of which are as follows...
Consistently ranked in Cigar Aficionado's "Top 25 Cigars of the Year," this smoke was awarded 95 points in 2014, thus landing it in the #2 spot that season. More recently, this blend earned a 92 rating at the same publication in 2021, earning it a spot in the Top 25 all over again.
In order to win over cigar critics, EP Carrillo formed this box-pressed toro with a dark coffee bean-colored Mexican San Andrés wrapper, then bound up a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers with a Sumatran-seed binder. The result is a cigar that is Sumatran herb and tea spice forward, with a dark, rich mocha presence.
With its 96-point average in 2018 securing it the title of "Cigar of the Year" at Cigar Aficionado, EP Carrillo's Encore is unlike anything we've ever encountered.
Medium-bodied, but bordering on being full-flavored, this square little robusto comes constructed from 100% Nicaraguan tobacco leaf, but with one unusual twist. Portions of this blend receive an additional two years of age in palm bark boxes, called tercios. The result is a unique tannin aromatic, and a delicate woodiness that is borderline intoxicating.
Finally, there is the beast of the three, EP Carrillo's Pledge Prequel. A cigar that has bludgeoned its way to a record-holding 98-point rating with dark velvet-lined boxing gloves and unapologetic power.
Rated #1 in Cigar Aficionado's 2020 round-up of "Top 25 Cigars of the Year," this full-bodied, full-strength, and full-flavored robusto block of smoking bliss comes cloaked in one of the darkest wrappers we sell here at Klaro. Encapsulated in an oily Habano Connecticut Oscuro wrapper, then backed by an Ecuadorian binder and all Nicaraguan filler, this is one short smoke that will keep you salivating for more.
