The E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2022 Maduro Short Play started out with medium-full flavor combinations of creamy tobacco, spices, pepper, earth and leather. The second third settled into a pleasant but less complex combination of flavors as much of the spice fell away. The last third was mostly wood driven. All in all, it was an enjoyable cigar to smoke, but the second and last thirds didn't have enough complexity to elevate the overall flavor experience to much more than just above average.
