Episode 016: 2011 EP Carrillo Short Run
Hello again, folks, and welcome back to Episode 016 of Half Ashed. We appreciate you stopping by. In this episode, we take a look at the 2011 EP Carrillo Short Run. We’re smoking the Bombone (4 7/8 X 50), with its Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan/Dominican filler blend. This is Kip’s favorite of the Short Run series so far, but tune in to get full details about how they’re smoking right now.
Rather than the detailed notes I might normally post, I’ll be brief and only include a short summary this week. A busy holiday weekend coupled with my little Dude’s birthday have left me with little time to publish before our self-imposed deadline. So, here goes: We cover a couple of legislative items, a Camacho rebranding, an AMERICAN puro(!), as well as a few more interesting tidbits of news. Also, we discussed what else we’ve been smoking, and Kip’s “Mad Scientist” idea for comparing some of the intriguing new cigars that are hitting the market. Finally, we cover a couple of listener emails and updates. Catch the full show via any of the means below to get “the rest of the story.”
Firstly, a huge thank you this Memorial Day weekend to all those who have made such sacrifice to allow me the opportunity to enjoy the life and freedom I have grown so accustomed to. As we did at show closing, I wanted to recognize the countless acts that have made that possible over the history of this nation. Next week, we’ll have the Michael Stewart as our guest, and be taking a look at his process for sourcing whole leaf tobacco and rolling his own cigars at home. So again, thanks for tuning in, and be sure to check back in next week for an exciting Episode 017.
