E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Series Maduro
A decadent and full-bodied treat, the E.P. Carillo Cardinal Maduro cigar is another hit for its maker. Ernesto Perez-Carillo is renowned for his ability to create small-batch boutique smokes that rival anything the big producers can muster, and the Cardinal line is his gift to aficionados who seek out the heaviest and most robust stogies they can find. With its ligero-laden blend of Nicaraguan filler and toothy Connecticut Broadlead wrapper this is easily the strongest blend to come from Carillo's E.P.C. Cigar company, but the man's genius is on display by not sacrificing complex and satisfying flavor in the quest for more power.
