The first 350 boxes of E.P. Carrillo’s INCH Limitada are on their way to retailers, according to an announcement from the company today.
The cigar, which measures 6 1/8 x 64 is the first INCH release to wear a limitada band. Measuring a true inch in diameter, it wears a Connecticut habano wrapper grown in the United States, while the binder and filler are both from Nicaragua. It is priced at $15 per cigar and $150 for a box of 10.
The company still has 1,650 boxes left to ship, a process that will occur over the next three weeks, Lissette Perez-Carrillo told halfwheel, which means the new cigar should be on all shelves by early October.
E.P. Carrillo introduced the INCH line in 2012, and in the seven years since its debut has seen several line extensions, including the INCH Maduro, INCH Colorado and INCH Ringmaster, as well as an INCH Short Run. It is made at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A., the company’s factory in the Dominican Republic.
