The number one Cigar of the Year for 2018 earning an impressive 96 points is….drumroll please… E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic. As the sole masterpiece of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, the E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic will have you cheering for an Encore!
The cigar maker who has seen more ups and downs than any other brand in the industry revived himself and the company with this magnificent blend of tobaccos. First previewed in 2016, the E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic had still a long way to go. The road to perfection began as Ernesto decided to halt the release.
The idea was to let the tobaccos and wrapper age well for the perfect taste. The cigars were left off until March last year and it was a wise decision by Ernesto. Get ready to enjoy every draw and puff, as you will experience a unique and satisfying taste.
Beautifully rolled in a Nicaraguan wrapper, E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic expresses sweet cream, baking spice, charred wood, and pine note. Rest assured, you will never get enough of this cigar, hence ENCORE!
