E.P. Carrillo New Wave Reserva Connecticut Robusto Box of 24

  • The EPC New Wave Reserva utilizes the same attractive Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf as the original, but is distinguishable by its sharp secondary band. The big difference in New Wave Reserva is its Connecticut Broadleaf binder which adds ample complexity to the Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. Upon lighting you are immediately met with bold notes of cocoa, espresso, and a pleasing natural sweetness.

Many of the cigar companies that we enjoy today didn’t start out making cigars under their own names. Rather, a lot of them began by constructing cigars for other businesses, businesses that would sell the cigar with their band on it. EP Carrillo raised the money needed to be able to open their own cigar line by doing just that; in their case, they were working with companies like La Gloria Cubana to make sure that their cigars would be delicious and well-received.

However, eventually, Ernesto-Perez Carrillo realized that he was more than able to afford to start his own line of cigars, made how he liked, with the kinds of tobacco that he would like to smoke. Thus, the EP Carrillo line of cigars were born.

They may seem like a simple affair; their boxes are wooden, beautifully enameled, and bear little marking (besides those mandated by government, of course), and the bands of their cigars are likewise simple but elegant. However, they tell you everything that you will need to know about the cigar; it is made under the supervision of EP Carrillo, and that means you are looking at a quality product.

So what makes this cigar delicious? It’s a lighter cigar, to be sure, which is usual when you start off with a Connecticut wrapper from Ecuador. Into this wrapper is placed tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, along with a Nicaraguan binder, leaving you with a cigar that is delicious and has notes of spice and earth to it, as well as creamy flavoring from the binder. This process helps elevate the flavor profile to a robust medium. It’s a great box of cigars to keep in your humidor for a nice after-dinner smoke.
