A few weeks ago, I received a surprise visit from Ernesto Carrillo. I’ve known Ernesto for close to 30 years and as we were sitting around in the lounge catching up, he offered me one of these Capa De Sol cigars. I fell In love with these and when Ernesto told me it was one of his favorites, I was sold.
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.
