At the upper echelon of the modernized E.P. Carrillo lineup is a new series dubbed "Elite." Within this classification are three blends: New Wave Reserva, Capa de Sol, and Selección Oscuro. These three cigars encompass the full range of profiles for all cigar enthusiasts, offering Connecticut, Habano, and maduro wrappers, respectively.
For E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro, the cigar utilizes one of the company's favorite wrappers, a dark and oily Mexican San Andrés Oscuro leaf. This is used in conjunction with an Ecuadorian binder and an all-Nicaraguan filler blend. The strategy behind this blend is to showcase fun flavors and complex nuances over strength.
This makes Selección Oscuro a fun an easily enjoyable smoke for new and experienced smokers alike, offering notes of deep chocolate, oak, cabinet spices, punchy pepper, and freshly tilled earth.
