Awaken Your Senses

From the inception of E.P. Carrillo’s legacy to its cutting-edge innovations, our journey is marked by unwavering dedication to providing unmatched value. The Essence Series Sumatra stands out, offering an experience designed to awaken your senses, not only through taste, but factoring the importance of sight and touch to your session.


The Sumatra wrapper's deep, rich brown hue exudes luxury and familiarity with its mild, slightly sweet characteristics. Slight color deviations highlight the handcrafted, labor-intensive process from seed to shelf. Each wrapper, touched by hundreds of hands, bears unique marks, adding to its charm and individuality.


The Sumatra wrapper is soft and delicate to the touch, offering a comfortable and inviting feel. As you run your fingers over the wrapper, you'll notice its smoothness, a gentle texture that hints at the refined smoking experience to come. This tactile sensation enhances the overall experience, making the cigar feel like an extension of your hand and something you will not think twice about when smoking.


For aficionados and newcomers alike, the Sumatra is a testament to our promise - awaken your palate along with your other senses. The sensation of the Sumatra is not only nuanced, but it dances on your palate in a way that briefly tingles and builds if you hold in on your palate. As you exhale, the sensation diminishes almost immediately, leaving behind only a slight flavor that excites you to take another draw.


The sound of the Sumatra is very unique, the ignition of the tobacco is so subtle, you may only hear the sound of your breath drawing through the cigar. But importantly, listen to your environment around you, be it a lounge, your patio, or the golf course. The Sumatra is about your surroundings, and the moment you choose to smoke it. Be present and listen to the inputs coming in from all sides, then take a draw and enjoy the moment we have spent years crafting for you.


Without smell there can be no taste. So we focused heavily on bringing a cigar that is as inviting to smell as it is to smoke. The pre-light aroma, with earthy, woody, or leathery notes, awakens your palate by priming your senses for what’s about to come. As you fire it up and smoke the Sumatra, its scent evolves into deeper, complex notes like cocoa, coffee, spices, or cedar. The room note, a blend of all these aromas, creates a rich and inviting atmosphere. Between draws, the cigar's resting aroma is lighter and less intense. The finish leaves a lingering sweet, smoky, or nutty scent on the palate and in the air. These aromatic experiences enhance the pleasure of cigar smoking, making it a deeply sensory activity.
