Tasting Note

Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has been making cigars for more than 40 years. He learned his craft by working alongside his father in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, where the family made La Gloria Cubana cigars. Perez-Carrillo developed a reputation for making serious cigars that were appreciated by connoisseurs, and his brand soared in popularity and became an industry mainstay. Today Perez-Carrillo has set out with his son and daughter to make a cigar under his own name in the Dominican Republic. He began with limited-edition smokes, and in 2010 he finally came out with his core line of regular production smokes called E.P. Carrillo. None are finer than the Golosos, a 60-ring-gauge behemoth that is creamy yet spicy, taking on savory notes of leather and a black-cherry sweetness.
