In August 2012, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, the “Pioneer of Large Ring Gauge Cigars” and creator of La Gloria Cubana Series R, introduced the INCH Series. The family has released one new blend a year, beginning with the E.P. Carrillo CORE. Each blend, while offering a different array of complexity and strength profiles, has stayed true to the family’s ideals of consistency, tradition, and passion for perfection. Today, EPC Cigar Co. provides their customers with a diverse portfolio of blends and sizes which will satisfy the most discerning cigar smoker.
The EP Carrillo Inch Maduro series cigar is made in the Dominican Republic. It is listed as a medium to full-bodied cigar with filler from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, a Nicaraguan binder, and a very nice broadleaf wrapper from Connecticut.
The INCH Maduro No. 60 has an earthy, sweet aroma with a silky feel. You will find its dark chocolate wrapper really appealing, especially given that is has minimal veins from the foot to the cap. Once lit, it had a very smooth draw that gave a lot of thick and creamy smoke through to the palate. The flavor throughout this smoke is of cocoa and leather but it is nicely balanced in character. Overall, INCH Maduro is a well constructed cigar with a slow and even burn – definitely a smoke for you to try.
