At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, a 4 x 44 line extension was added to the EH and OSOK line called Cabroncito. Today we look closer at the OSOK Cabroncito.

The EH line of cigars was the first line released by Edgar Hoill Cigars. Edgar Hoill Cigars is a partnership between Hoill and Christian Eiroa. Late in 2012, it was announced that Hoill would be joining CLE Cigar Company (then Fabricas Unidas) as the fourth brand under that umbrella.

This is a short smoke, and a nice one at that. Like the EH, the short duration does not allow for a lot of flavor transitions, I did find the flavor profile was excellent. Given this is a Nicaraguan puro, it behaves like one. It delivers notes of earth, cocoa, citrus, and pepper. The earth and cocoa. are more prominent early on. I did think the OSOK delivers more in the way of spice than the EH. Like the EH, the strength and body are medium to full but I found the OSOK to be a little stronger and fuller.

The Cabroncitos are wonderful short smoke as the winter months settle in. This is definitely worth a fiver.
