One thing that will come to mind when smoking the Short Run 2016 is the word different. This is not only a different cigar from an E.P. Carrillo standpoint, but it’s a very different cigar in general. In particular, the sweetness of this cigar is something very different. The medium-bodied profile really worked well with the flavors of this cigar – and especially with the sweetness. This cigar won’t have a lot of radical flavor transitions, but there is a nice amount of flavor nuances. I also found over past six months, I found this cigar has already responded nicely to aging – and my gut tells me it still has some more aging potential. It’s performing at a Box Worthy level.
