Capa de Sol by E.P. Carrillo cigars, are part of the E.P. Carrillo Elite Series, and as their name suggests, boast a flavorful sun-grown wrapper from Ecuador that surrounds an all-Nicaraguan long-filler and binder blend. Like all of the cigars in the E.P. Carrillo Elite Series, the construction is first-rate, complete with a triple cap and an effortless draw. The body is medium-full, leaning further to the full side, and the smoke issues a creamy mix of earthy, toasty, and spicy flavors with hints of roasted almonds, red pepper, and espresso.
According to one interview, the Ecuadorian sun-grown Habano wrapper on this line is one of Ernesto's personal favorites, too. If you love the hearty flavor of Nicaraguan tobacco combined with Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrappers, or you've been following Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s work over the years, you'll want to add this savory masterpiece to your collection.
