Very smooth smoking cigar. Very good taste that lasts throughout the smoke. Rich, creamy smoke. Has become one of my regular cigars.
I ve bought 5-ers of these Brillantes several times. I like them as a midday cigar. They re lovely, never had construction problems, draw is neither loose or tight, and flavor is really fine. I smoke about 3 cigars a day and I like to keep these around for when I want a milder moderate-bodied smoke.
im not a big connecticut fan but i am a huge ep carrillo fan and the nwc is a very nice relaxing smoke priced just right i had no problems or complaints with this stick burn,draw and taste are as good or better than cigars twice the price great job !
I found this cigar very flavorful and mild. The burn was a bit uneven and one of the wrappers came loose toward the end, but the flavor made up for these deficiencies.
I recently got back into cigars and ordered the Best of Boutique sampler (and some other samplers). Of the 30 cigars I put in my humidor, smelling each one and pinching them slightly I new this was the one to smoke first. It was not a letdown and was the best cigar I've had. Nutty for sure, creamy for sure and most of this hit after the first 1/3, i would've taken it to the nub if my wife's dinner wasn't hot and ready to eat! Will be ordering more of these.
This a surprisingly good smoke for the money. It starts out med-mild and picks up strength as it burns. Has a great flavor, a very enjoyable stick any time of the day. I smoked the first one with one day of rest and expect them to improve with more humidor time.
At first glance this cigar looks well constructed. Burns well and draws good. Not much flavor but not bad for the price. The only problem I had was the ash kept falling off...I have my doubt about it being long filler. Don t think I ll get these again, there s much better choices for the price.
A nutty creamy smoke, not your normal mild Connecticut. Med strength and great full bodied flavors.
The E.P.Carrillo New Wave Connecticut Brillantes size has construction problem. It was tighted; therefore, I didn't enjoyed good favors of the cigar like I did on the Stellas size.
This is a mildish but very ordinary cigar that is quite overpriced. I'm surprised that Ernesto Carillo would len his name and reputation to such a ho-hum smoke. Buy Olor instead.
