Awaken Your Senses

From the first blend that ignited the legacy of E.P. Carrillo to the latest innovations redefining excellence, our story is one of relentless dedication. The Essence Series Maduro is crafted for those seeking an extraordinary experience unlike any other Maduro on the market today. It is an everyday maduro that seeks to be better than the one you had yesterday.


At first glance, the stark black San Andres Maduro wrapper catches your eye, beautifully contrasted by a label designed to highlight its shine. Known for its oily texture, the tobacco emits abundant blue smoke from the first light. As the cigar burns, watch the ash turn bright white, a testament to the ultra-fermented tobacco.


The San Andres Maduro wrapper is notably toothy, a term describing its sandpaper-like texture rather than a silky smooth finish. Running your thumb over the wrapper, you’ll feel the unique texture and veins that are part of the cigar's DNA.


Imagine sipping a freshly brewed espresso—intense, yet inviting flavors with a subtle sweetness. The San Andres wrapper brings these flavors to life. As the cigar progresses, prepare for a journey of evolving flavors, shifting from bold to a more medium-bodied experience. True to the Essence Series, this blend awakens your senses and leaves a pleasant finish, inviting you to light another and enjoy the experience anew.


From the light, you will notice the hearty San Andres Maduro wrapper ignites with a subtly audible crackle. The oiliness of the wrapper has a distinct sound when the ember reaches its way from the filler tobaccos out to ignite the wrapper. Draw slowly, deeply, and evenly to listen to the cigar come to life. If you can tune in to the cigar enough to hear what it is telling you, listen to the ash fall into the ashtray as soft as fresh snowfall.


There’s something remarkable about the wrapper on the Maduro. You may immediately notice the sweetness that comes off it. The pre-light aroma, with earthy, chocolatey, and raisin notes introduce the unlit cigar's scent. Expect a slightly more intense aroma with the Maduro than the other Essence series cigars, but remaining clean and inviting. The finish leaves a lingering campfire, almost creosote scent on the palate and in the air. These aromatic experiences enhance the pleasure of cigar smoking, reminiscent of a summertime fire pit cigar session.
