A Glorified Smoke: Ernesto Carrillo and El Credito Cigars

James Suckling
From the Print Edition:
Groucho Marx, Spring 93

(continued from page 4)

Soberano: This cigar looks and feels so good that it seems a shame to smoke it. Exquisitely firm and solid, it is silky and harmonious on the palate with lovely, creamy, slightly spicy flavors. 90
Ring gauge: 52
Length: 8"
Price: $1.95

Wavell: Another superlative cigar from La Gloria. If you had to smoke one cigar from this company on a regular basis, this should be it. A lovely draw, it shows plenty of alluring coffee, spicy flavors. 90
Ring gauge: 50
Length: 5"
Price: $1.50

Torpedo No. 1: This is the next best thing to a Montecristo No. 2 pyramid from Havana. Perfectly rolled with a taper to a point, this sets a precedent outside of Cuba for this shape. It is packed to the wrapper with flavor and richness. Not a cigar for the light-hearted, though; smoke after a big meal. 93
Ring gauge: Tapered
Length: 6 1/2"
Price: $2.10

Double Corona: Pleasing and easy to smoke; this is a big cigar but very delicate with good caramel, coffee character on the palate and an attractive finish. Not as powerful as you might expect in this format but delicious to smoke. 88
Ring gauge: 50
Length: 7"
Price: $1.90
