EP Carrillo's INCH Series Cigar

EP Carrillo Inch Series


Greetings, evangelists of EP Carrillo. This fledgling (but experienced) cigar company has been making a splash in the cigar industry since they debuted only a few years ago. The have just announced their latest release in time for the upcoming IPCPR Trade Show and Convention. Introducing the INCH. Here is the summary as released to retailers today in a company email:

INCH Series Summary

Our father helped pioneer the big ring gauge trend 15 years ago, and with the INCH Series, we're aiming to set the new standard for flavor in big ring gauges.

The INCH Series will initially come in 3 sizes - 60, 62, and 64 ring gauge - and two wrapper varieties: Natural (Ecuador Sumatra) and Maduro (Connecticut Broadleaf).

The signature size of the line and inspiration for the name is the 64 ring gauge, which measures 1 inch in diameter.  The thickness of these smokes will be highlighted by the cigar band - modeled after an antique ruler.

The INCH Series will be a regular-production line, but due to the limited availability of the filler leaves in the blend, we will only be producing around 100,000-125,000 cigars in 2012.
