When you’re Ernesto Carrillo you know the craft of cigar making to a ‘T’. With esteemed brands like La Gloria Cubana, and E.P. Carrillo under his belt, his bench of 90+ ratings is long and deep. And in the midst of creating top-notch cigars year after year, he also keeps his ear turned to the crowd, listening to every critique and request. Due to popular demand, E.P. Carrillo has released a new premium cigar line that weighs in against some of the thickest in the industry. Without further ado, enter INCH Maduro by E.P. Carrillo, monstrous slow burning jawbreakers.
Whoa - now this is what I call an impressive cigar. Dark, oily, and downright thick the INCH Maduro brings a mouthful of flavors in spades. Carefully crafted under Ernesto's watchful eye, each INCH Maduro comes cloaked in glistening Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, and hugs a long-filler blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. Blended specifically to cater to the bulbous size of INCH, each puff reveals Ernesto's remarkable blending talents. Copious smoke coats the palate, as strong yet smooth notes of black pepper, roasted coffee, and earth mingle with an undeniable sweetness. Medium to full in body, the INCH Maduro delivers truckloads of flavor behind an outstanding, well-balanced bouquet. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back E.P. Carrillo, you deserve it.
Fun fact: INCH cigars got their name from the fact that 1/64th of an inch equals 1 in ring gauge. For example, the INCH #64 is one full inch in diameter!
“How is there no review for this absolutely amazing cigar? I had my first one today(1/12/13), at my local 'gar shop and it blew me away, honestly. Now, I am not an aficionado or anything so I can't tell you the different favors and what not but damn, this an awesome cigar! It is heavy in the hand and burnt evenly with no touch ups required. It is not a fast burner so make sure you have about an hour to polish this bad boy. I would say it is a solid medium flavor.”

“Received my 10 pack today and immediately went out on the porch to give one a try. This is a wonderful stick, very tasty and even drawing. It is a bit of a challenge to get it lighted in the wind, even with my torch. I will order another batch, even if it did make me drunk as a skunk. Or, maybe it was the Glenfiddich I was nipping on at the time.”

“Hands down one of the best cigars I have ever puffed. Picked up ten for 39.95 off of Joe's daily deals and I wish I would have ordered more. Cigar was smooth and lasted over an hour. My humidor will always have one of these in it.”

JC of HONOLULU, HI
“Hands down my favorite cigar! Razor burn, tons of creamy smoke, touch of pepper, touch of sweet.....and huge ring gauge. Perfect! Word of caution. I picked up the inch natural instead of maduro once to try it, and the construction and taste was way off, at least for my tastes. I can't imagine anyone not liking this maduro. If you don't, send it my way.”
“Just received my 5pack on 7/16/14, smoked one that night and was BLOWN AWAY. The taste lasted a few hours after smoking. Its been a struggle not to smoke another one. My only regret is that I couldnt find the Joe's deal 10 for $40 that one of the guys spoke of. DELICIOUS SMOKE!”

“What an amazing cigar. If you want a great smoke that starts smooth and stays smooth to the bitter end then this is a cigar you must try. Robust and full of flavor. I just put in my second order for the INCH Maduro.”
