Like Paul, I explored the EP Carrillo Edición Limitada 2012 again this week. I also agree with him that these cigars are really beginning to come into their own. Much of the citrus I had originally had greatly diminished and I found a cigar that had notes of earth, cocoa, coffee, and pepper spice. There was a nice creamy undertone to this cigar.
The flavors and the strength seemed to tone down from when I first reviewed this as it was medium to full for both categories. The cigar closed much smoother with a firmer nub. While I disagree with Paul in terms of this having Oasis potential, it definitely is scoring higher (and tasting better) than it did back nine months ago.
