Inch by E.P. Carrillo

Inch by E.P. Carrillo

Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has created several brands intended for the American market in the last 20 years.

 

One of them, La Gloria Cubana Serie R, has become one of the brands most in demand in the United States. In order to meet the ever growing demand for wide diameter cigars, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has created the Inch brand. This consists of four wide diameter models, the No.60, No.62, No.64 and No.70, each available with a Maduro or Natural wrap. Production is limited to about 120 000 cigars a year because of restricted production capacity and tobacco availability. Tobacco for the filler comes principally from the Dominican Republic and is derived from Piloto Cubano, Corojo, and Criollo '98 tobacco plants. The binder comes exclusively from Nicaragua while the wrap derives from Connecticut or Equator. Inch cigars are well balanced and are a little bit spicy. The ring takes its design from an ancient model.

  • Inch No.60 Natural

    The first generous, dense puffs intensify slightly woody hints of pepper. The state-of-flux continues harmoniously, the smooth ash entirely set on the vitola. Drawing air is a simple task. The ample smoke fills the mouth as well as the smoker’s surroundings. The final puffs bring out hints of cedar and cinnamon.

  • Inch No.60 Maduro

    The slightly darker declension of the wrap gives it a slightly fatter appearance. When raw, the difference is minimal; leather and coffee are dominant. This likeness is rediscovered when smoking, certainly with the additional sensation of a slightly more peppery cigar.

  • Inch No.62 Natural

    The vitola is well presented, the wrap is carefully applied and the filler is even. The wide diameter helps drawing the cigar. The soft velvety circles of smoke are not too aggressive; and not bitter. Cocoa and coffee pervade the taste. A few hints of wood appear with delicacy. The three-thirds concentrate the aromas perceived the first time. The...

  • Inch No.62 Maduro

    A dark rich wrap might suggest that the vitola will become more intense. As with No.60, this feeling has more to do with appearance than taste. Smoking it proves very agreeable but it is not radically different from No.62 Natural.

  • Inch No.64 Natural

    This is an imposing cigar of 2.54 cm diameters. The considerable filler density makes it firm to the touch. E.P. Carillo has made good use of his knowledge in conceiving this vitola. There is great rigour in the form of this cigar. Lighting up takes some time but once combustion has begun, there are wide rings of smoke and it draws easily. Cocoa and...

  • Inch No.64 Maduro

    The slightly darker wrap contains few veins, rolling is regular and it is densely filled. Lighting up requires attention. The cigar should be lit evenly so combustion is generalised. As with the 64 Natural, cocoa and coffee are dominant. Roasted more than the lighter version, the intensity is slightly more perceptible without being excessive. The choice...

  • Inch No.70 Natural

    No other cigar maker could have imagined launching the production of such a substantial model. The imposing size is puzzling at first. Once you have mastered your apprehension, lighting up requires time and to obtain the best from this colossus you should nurture it. Once lit, it draws in a simply wonderful way, the tempo established with remarkable...

  • Inch No.70 Maduro

    The same size as No.70 Natural, the maduro is impressive. The aficionado can contemplate its 17.7 cm length. Lighting up should be done gently, and you should take your time. The draw seems silky in your mouth and transmits voluptuous smoke, which is very dense and slightly more peppery than the Natural range. Minimal bitterness tells you about the fine...
