EP Carrillo Cigar company (@epcarrillo)announces the shipment of it’s latest creation, the INCH. Three different vitolas, No. 60 5 7/8 x 60, No. 62 5 x 62, and No. 64 6 1/8 x 64 will be produced in both Maduro and Natural wrappers. The cigar has either Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro or Ecuador Sumatra wrapper for the maduro and natural lines respectively. They share the same blend of Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican (Piloto Cubano, Corojo and Criollo ’98) fillers. Both cigars are billed at medium to full and have a suggested price of $8.75-$10.00
This is a prototype box picture and boxes are currently being made for this release. Ernie Carrillo, III told us that he expects the INCH to ship in the next few weeks as soon as the box factory can deliver! So, look for them at selected tobacconists soon.
The tobaccos that EP Carrillo have available will limit this production to less than 125,000 cigars for 2012. This may make the INCH a rare commodity, given the success of the other Carrillo releases to date.
