E.P. Carillo Seleccion Oscuro Piramide (6" x 52) cigars are made with an especially unique blend handmade in the beautiful country of the Dominican Republic, using Nicaraguan long fillers, Ecuadorian binder and a dark, San Andres Oscuro wrapper from Mexico. The result is a medium-to-full bodied flavor with a tinge of sweet spiciness.
I have ordered these four times now. When I order singles, they end up being great. I enjoyed them so much that I have ordered two boxes at different times. The cigars in the boxes have a brown oil on the cigars. If you take a damp cloth and wipe them down, it will literally turn golden brown. No other cigars do this that I have found. After wiping them down, they smoke really nice but if you don't wipe them down they can be bitter. I always put the singles and boxes and my humidor for at least a week before smoking so it is just something about the boxes I ordered. For some reason, the singles are much different than the cigars I got in the boxes.

Excellent Full bodied Smoke
Mar 05, 2017
Cigar was a Full Bodied but smooth smoke. Draw was slightly tight but not so much as to be objectionable. From the beginning Chocolate was present. Later some spice and to my palate a slight sweet oatmeal flavor. The cigar was very enjoyable and was never harsh. It was a finger burner since I savored every last draw! Will definitely add to the rotation.
