A great cigar maker doesn’t necessarily start out as someone who is making cigars for themselves. Sure, there are plenty of names out there that got big by making their own cigars back when they were small-time, but others didn’t begin that way at all. Rather, they began by making cigars for others.
EP Carrillo, then, is a name that many will recognize. It’s a name that has a history in the market, too, and one that has a lot of wins when it comes to the cigar market. They make cigars that are generally liked, and their own line, EP Carrillo, is a line that did well too. You may recognize the name, not from their own line, but as the people who manufactured the vitolas sold by La Gloria Cubana for almost a quarter of a century. Indeed, Carrillo has personally blended some of the best cigars that La Gloria has released in years, coming up with cigars that were extremely well-liked and rated.
So, what is the INCH, and why should you smoke it? These are Gordo cigars, designed to pander to the crowd that loves large diameter cigars. Blended with Nicaraguan and Dominican Republic tobaccos, and with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, the INCH is a serious cigar that gives heed to the usual lines from Carrillo, but in a larger size. If you’re looking for a thick cigar, and one that is delicious, with notes of cedar and spice, this is the kind of cigar that you’re going to want to smoke, and this offering from EP Carrillo aims to please.
