EP Carrillo - Short Run - 2

Ordinarily I don’t like to do a Short Ashes review so close to a full blown review but I was left with few options this week. Time got away from me and before I knew it, it was Thursday night and I had nothing fresh for my Friday review. Trying to build up a little back-stock of reviews, I had a Short Ashes review of the EP Carrillo Short Run 2010 in reserve.

The video runs roughly thirteen-minutes and covers my condensed thoughts on the EP Carrillo Short Run. In addition, I talk a little about my thoughts on the short run concept and weigh it against the Rocky Patel seasonal releases (RP Spring 2009, RP Summer 2009, RP Winter 2009) as well as the Gurkha Micro Batch. Once your finished with the video, head down to the comments section and give us your thoughts on the Short Run concept.

  1. Always great to get more than one point of view on a cigar! I think the price is very attractive for these compared to the Inaugural.

    I picked up the Inaugural over in Lancaster so maybe I can find these there also to give a try.


  2. I think comparing the EP Carrillo Short Run to similar concepts from Rocky Patel or Gurkha is a bit unfair. It would be more appropriate to compare EP Carrillo’s offerings to those “Small Batch” or “Limitada” offerings of Litto Gomez and La Flor Dominicana. That way you are comparing two men who are serious about the business of making great tobacco products instead of bringing into the conversation people who are willing to whore out their name just to see it in on as many products as possible regardless of quality. But that’s just my opinion. 🙂

    Good review. I look forward to actually getting my hands on these. I am a fan of Ernesto but was not very impressed by the Edicion Inaugural (for several reasons, price being one of them). This one sounds more like something I will like.

    1. Perhaps I’m mistaken, but isn’t the Limitada productions from Litto Gomez the same from year to year?

      This line, quoted from Brian’s review, is what had me thinking of the Gurkha and Rocky Patel releases.

      In the meantime, though, let’s focus on what we have here now. The Short Run concept, as explained to me by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s son Ernie is “to release small batches of unique blends throughout the year. This is the only Short Run edition that we plan on doing in 2010, but we will do many more in 2011.

  3. Nice job Walt. I think its a great stick too! I’m looking farward to seeing these available in the market!!

  4. Thanks for the plug Walt!

    I don’t know if you noticed this as well, but I smoked my last one a week or so later than the other two, and there was a noticeable improvement in the flavor. It was good to begin with but it was even better with just a short amount of time resting. It could have been just recovering from shipping, or it could have been the copious amounts of scotch I was drinking, but it was fantastic and very box-worthy. I’m really looking forward to buying more, and I love that they’re easier on the wallet.

  5. Great review Walt, I tried one today and was surprised at just how good it was, especially with the flavors. Of all the cigars that I’ve tried which had a nutty flavor to it, this one does it for me, definitely invoking to pick up more, hope this one gets re-released.
