E.P. Carrillo has created so many memorable cigars, and this entry just continues his series of successes. E.P. Carrillo New Wave Reserva begins with the popular New Wave and takes it in a new direction.
The wrapper is the same as New Wave's - a tawny Ecuadorian Connecticut capa. But for this entry, the binder is replaced by a rich Connecticut Broadleaf, adding richness and depth to the blend. It's all tied together by Nicaraguan and Dominican Cuban-seed long-fillers. The profile is medium-bodied with coffee and dark chocolate notes with a pleasant sweetness on the finish. Score another win for E.P. Carrillo.
