    This is mu second ever E.P Carillo cigar. Can't remember what the first one was, only that it wasn't for me.

    This one looks very pretty though, I especially like the blue they chose for the bands.

    The cigar starts out quite harsh, with strong, sharp flavors.

    After about an inch, the cigar seems to settle on vegetal flavors, although I suspect it will get a bit more peppery soon.

    Finally the harshness is disappearing, giving way to full-bodied earthy, herbal flavours.

    The ash is firm and white but the burn is slightly uneven. One side of the cigar has a distinctively darker shade of tobacco leaveas in it than the rest.

    Overall, the flavors of this cigar are rather dark. I even tasted a hint of tar - at least it reminded me of the smell of tar, can't say I ever ate it...
