E.P. Carrillo is giving its INCH line a new version that will be the first to use an all Nicaraguan blend.
Dubbed the INCH Ringmaster, the new cigar comes in two yet-to-be-named sizes that live up the line’s name: a 5 3/8 x 64 robusto gordo and a 6 1/2 x 64 gordo. Ring gauges are determined in 64ths of an inch, so a cigar with a 64 ring gauge measures one inch in diameter.
Both will be offered in 24-count boxes and are being added as regular production cigars. Pricing is also yet to be determined, according to a report by Cigar Aficionado that has not yet been confirmed by the company, as emails sent requesting information about the line have gone unanswered.
The cigars are made at the company’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The E.P. Carrillo INCH line, which debuted in 2012, currently includes three lines, the INCH Natural, INCH Colorado, and INCH Maduro, which all come in the same five sizes: 5 X 62, 5 7/8 X 60, 6 1/8 X 64, 7 X 70 and 8 X 58.
