Intertabac 2018 E P Carrillo. Ernesto Perez Carrillo took a minute of his precious time to show us the new E.P. Carrillo Inch, exclusively available for the international markets. A must-try for the lover of big ring cigars.

Inch cigars

The inch gets its name from the ring gauge. The ring size of a cigar is measured in 64th of an inch. A classic robusto measures ring 50, so 50/64th of an inch. The E.P. Carrillo Inch series measures 64/64th of an inch in diameter. Exactly an Inch, hence the name.

The line is probably the most popular line from Ernesto Perez Carrillo. It is available in different blends. And now there is an exclusive size for the international markets. This size is not available in the United States. At Intertabac 2018 E P Carrillo launched that specific cigar.

He sold that brand and factory to Scandinavian Tobacco Group. He then served as General Manager at STG for a decade. When his contract came up, the decision was made to venture out and start EPC Cigars.
