EP Carrillo is a cigar maker from the old country, the country where the US once got most of its best cigars. That’s right, he came from Cuba. Of course, as happened with so many of the great cigar makers in Cuba, times got hard, the communists didn’t care for them, and they ended up in the United States. Here they realized that they could keep making cigars but could now actually become wealthy in doing so!
But, as a guy from a traditional cigar background, Carrillo has been somewhat hesitant to go along with the new trends in cigar making, including the creation of those short and thick cigars that seem to be so popular in the United States these days. Everyone makes them; small, short, large-ring cigars like the Nub or various other similar offerings. Well, the INCH line of cigars is EP Carrillo giving in and making one of those trendy thick cigars that the people are so enamored with these days, and he does it quite well.
With a Colorado wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and filler from Dominica, this is a great cigar, especially if you’re the kind of person who enjoys smoking thicker cigars. You’ll be glad to have a box of these on hand to enjoy heartily as the seasons change from warm to cooler. They are also a huge hit during tailgating sessions at your favorite pro or college football games. Go Eagles!
