After the success of La Historia, Ernesto Perez Carrillo wanted to do something phenomenal again, and EP Carrillo Encore was the way he could put on the magic one more time. EP Carrillo Encore is the second part in the family series of cigars by E P Carrillo cigars. Soon after it was released, it was awarded the number-one cigar by Cigar Aficionado in 2018, with the Encore Majestic being rated 96. Cigar Aficionado didn’t make any mistakes because the cigar is majestic in every aspect. EP Carrillo cigars have always had a relationship with Nicaragua tobacco, but the Encore is the first to be purely Nicaraguan. The fillers, binders, and wrappers are from Nicaragua's most fertile volcanic regions- Condega, Jalapa, and Esteli. Try EP Carrilo Encore today!
The E P Carrillo Encore cigar also undergoes a unique fermentation process where the fillers are aged, especially in “tercios.” Here, the tobacco leaves are wrapped with palm tree bark to make tight bales, creating a two-way humidification system. The result is fermented leaves with distinct flavors and aromas. The cigar is box-pressed and reddish-brown. It is full flavored and, like the name, encores the excellency of La Historia. Its sweet-smelling smoke is medium to full-bodied in strength and has a good draw and an even burn. Ernesto Perez Carrillo Encore comes in five different sizes: El Futuro (5" x 50), Celestial (6 ⅛" x 50), Valientes (6 ⅛" x 52), Majestic (5 ⅜" x 52), and El Primero (6 ⅞" x 54). EP Carrillo is not a regular smoke, it is luxurious, and every puff will remind you that nothing comes as close as good smoke. So enjoy!
