E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro was Cigar Aficionado’s #4 cigar of 2016, with a fantastic 94 rating!
The Selección Oscuro joins the Encore Majestic and La Historia as the E.P. Carrillo cigars that have hit the industry’s highest heights, breaking into the top five of Cigar Aficionado’s rankings. This cigar is the most “natural” of the bunch, featuring a rustic wrapper that really reminds us that tobacco isn’t a perfectly smooth and polished product that comes off a factory line. Instead, the Selección Oscuro’s capa reminds us that cigars come straight from the soil.
The aroma off the Mexican San Andrés Oscuro wrapper is intoxicating and earthy. Light up the cigar and you’ll start to experience a rich array of flavors, thanks to the Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan filler blend. Chocolate and leather are there, but also a distinctive note of dried fruit that has also been described as subtly tangy, like a very high quality barbeque sauce. This intriguing medium to full-bodied smoke is the key to the Selección Oscuro’s success. It isn’t the kind of aggressive flavor that really bowls you over. It’s a finely-balanced smoke that keeps your lips smacking.
Don’t be spooked by that dark wrapper. This isn’t a cigar designed for heavy-handed power or potent spice. Instead, you’re getting a premium blend that offers interesting and fully satisfying flavor.
