EP Carillo Maduro InchThe EP Carrillo Inch Maduro cigar is a medium to full bodied stogie with a splendid blend of tobaccos. One of the items that people notice first about the stick is its enormous size. Normal cutters will not typically fit around it. The burn still remains even and steady, all the way to the nub. The price is great for most aficionados coming in at below $10. The preferred beverage is said to be a refreshing glass of ice water.

The double wrapper is a combination of natural and Maduro tobaccos. The natural wrapper is an Ecuadorian Sumatra and the other is a Connecticut Broadleaf. The filler is a classy blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The sun ripened leaves are aged perfectly using a company secret. The results are nothing less than ideal for this strong stogie.

Rolling the stick between the fingers finds no serious soft spots. The appearance is appealing to the senses in every way. Thin veins cover the dark, slightly oily wrapper. Hints of vanilla and espresso are evident when smelling the stogie. The cold draw reminds reviewers of an amaretto and coffee combination. The smoker finds this to be a true treat that is great for any occasion.

The first third starts with a deep coffee flavor with a cayenne sort of aftertaste, although the cayenne is not overly peppery. Some reviewers found it to be a bit difficult to get started because of the sheer size, but once started the EP Carrillo Inch Maduro cigar burned even and strong. The aromatic smoke was not overpowering. The smoke itself was thin, especially when taking the enormity of the size into consideration, but it does not take away from the experience.

The strength of the nicotine increases throughout the second third. The peppery flavors from the previous third transition out quickly in this stage bringing up a sweet flavor. The almonds from the cold draw combine with the coffee making for a nice treat. The sweetness is strong and is able to mellow out the full bodied strength of the nicotine at this level. The EP Carrillo Inch Maduro cigar is really shining at this point.

Reviewers stated that there is a surprise flavor in the final third. The sweet espresso flavors continue with the nicotine level strongly in the full bodied range. The EP Carrillo Inch Maduro cigar has a surprise, though, as the flavor of anise sneaks up towards the end of the final third. The burn has remained even while the thin white smoke leaves a nice smell to the area. Because of its sheer size, the stogie takes a long time to finish. Overall, those who tried this cigar were very pleased and quite satisfied.

The EP Carrillo Inch Maduro cigar is a good addition to this brands line. The enormity of the stick can be a bit intimidating to the new smoker. The strength of the nicotine is not for the faint hearted. True aficionados will appreciate the stick for its flavor, strength and size. The price makes it appealing as well, especially for the size. Any smoker wanting to try a great full bodied stogie has found the right place to begin. The tobaccos are well-blended and the firmness ensures the smoker will enjoy the experience from start to finish.
