Quick Smoke: E.P. Carrillo Inch No. 62 Natural

4 Nov 2012



Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

The size of this monster of a cigar (5 x 62) makes me skeptical, but knowing the other fantastic cigars made by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, I had to try it. The large ring gauge format features an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. It’s very earthy and full-bodied with dark chocolate and a little spice. The fat cigar features excellent construction and produces loads of thick smoke. I picked this cigar up from Emerson’s (where you can pickup a four-cigar sampler of the line for $35) and despite the unwieldy size I’m pleasantly surprised.

Verdict = Buy.

    Interesting, I tend to shy away from 60+ gauge cigars, all my experiences with them have resulted in uneven burning, might give this a shot.
