Rating: 90 by Cigar Aficionado

Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is chiefly known for producing complex, full-bodied cigars like La Gloria Cubana Serie R and the E.P. Carrillo Edicion Limitada Elencos 2010. For the E.P. Carrillo New Wave Connecticut line, however, he employed a silky and mild Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper. This, along with Nicaraguan binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan filler leaves, makes for a mild-to-medium-bodied smoke with notes of nuts, cream, cedar, and baking spice. Perez-Carrillo has succeeded in creating a line that combines remarkable smoothness with an intricate, complex flavor profile.

It's all a matter of taste

Found it a little harsh for a Connecticut, but as with so many things, taste is an individual thing. The cigar is well constructed and draws well. Seemed (to me) a little harsh/bitter toward the end.

pleasant, consistent smoke

Offers a very consistent, creamy smoke of medium body, leaning towards mild, that offered some spice near the end. Nice construction, good draw, overall a pleasant, straightforward cigar.

Ernesto hit a homerun

Big fan of this brand. Very flavorful, nice even burn. Good smoke earlier in the day. Went well with my morning coffee.

A great every day smoke, quick and affordable

These quick smokes are an affordable every day enjoyment - good flavor in their mild to medium strength. Only an occasional tight wrap but still a quality cigar.

The Every Day Smoke

These Brillantes are a great and affordable everyday smoke. Smooth from the first puff to the last, these 15 minute sticks are the perfect smoke for early morning or the break time rush.
