The 91-rated New Wave is a gorgeous, mellow to medium-bodied morsel from cigar-maker Ernesto Perez-Carrillo….originally of La Gloria Cubana fame.

The finish is long but refined, completing a savory everyday handmade from one of the industry’s premier cigar artisans.
E.P. Carrillo New Wave received a solid 91-point rating, in addition to a ’90,’ noting: “Richly hued with a golden-brown wrapper. This small cigar has an easy draw that imparts some leather flavor, toastiness and a slight sweetness. Balanced.”
