E.P. Carrillo Encore Valientes: the cold draw reveals scents of black pepper and spices. The opening is very spicey, with the black pepper standing out.

E.P. Carrillo Encore Valientes 3

The first third is a mix of wood resin and black pepper, which are followed by toasted notes of coffee beans. Strength is medium-full (4/5).

In the middle section, earth is added, and black pepper gets even more intense in this third. Strength increases slightly (4.5/5).

The final third delivers hot spices and vegetal nuances. The aroma of wood resin is still present, but now it is only perceivable in the finish. Strength becomes full (5/5), ending the smoke with a bang.

Overall, the E.P. Carrillo Encore Valientes delivers a rich and satisfying smoke. The intensity is full since the first puffs, and the cigar is a flavor bomb throughout the smoke.
