The E.P. Carrillo Edición Limitada 2012 marks the fourth entry into what has become an annual limited edition release by Ernesto Perez Carrillo’s cigar company. The Edición Limitada series has been released each year since 2009. The blend changes from year to year – and the cigar is done in one size. For the Edición Limitada 2012, this marks the first cigar in this series to use a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. I have recently had an opportunity to sample this cigar. While this might sound repetitive, this is yet another fine cigar to join the E.P. Carrillo cigar family.
As mentioned the Edición Limitada 2012 is a limited edition cigar. For this release, there have been 1500 boxes of ten produced. For the most part, this series has been a one time release and once the cigars are gone, they are gone. The only exception has been the Edición Limitada 2010 – which had been incorporated into the E.P. Carrillo portfolio as the E.P. Carrillo Elencos.
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro Maduro

While this cigar was still a touch on the young side, these will be coming into their own in the next 6 months to a year. As of today, this cigar is pretty awesome. Still balanced, even though some flavors are not fully developed, the blend is really awesome. I got a nice coffee and a touch of chocolate, coupled with sweetness in a rich and creamy body. Nice change ups through the first through final thirds too. This stick has huge aging potential. Buy a box now and this one will likely be Oasis level in the future.
