INCH Nicaragua by E.P. Carrillo is the Quintessential Big Ring Gauge Cigar.
Made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo designed them always to be large and nothing but large. Nicaragua’s reputation is the result of the remarkable climate and soil of the three main tobacco growing areas in the country – Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa. Each region plays an integral role in the formation of Ernesto’s unique blends.
“The amount of tobacco and the quality of tobacco is what makes it so unique,” said cigarmaker Ernesto Perez-Carrillo.
Staying true to the family’s ideals of consistency, tradition, and passion for perfection, the INCH Nicaragua has a robust and peppery character with a prominent, almost caramel sweetness that balances the spice. Made with 100% pure Nicaraguan tobacco, the INCH Nicaragua is rolled for those who like all Nicaraguan cigars. The wrapper, filler and binder are all Nicaraguan.
“Most of the cigar world credits Ernesto Perez-Carrillo with bringing the big ring gauge cigars to the industry,” said Lissette Perez-Carrillo.
The INCH line hit the cigar market in 2012 and is one of the best-selling lines from E.P. Carrillo.
Inch Nicaragua, released in 2022, is available in three sizes: The No. 60, at 5 7/8 inches long by 60 ring; No. 62, at 5 by 62; and No. 64, at 6 1/8 by 64.

How to Select a Cigar
Cigars are a classic man’s drink – they go with everything from martinis to brown liquor and even BBQs! They’re also great to celebrate special occasions, like a birthday, anniversary or wedding.
When choosing a cigar, there are several things to consider, including flavour and strength. It’s also important to consider when you’ll be smoking it, where it’ll be smoked and how long you plan to smoke it for.
Selecting a cigar is an easy process once you understand the basics. You’ll want to look for good construction, quality tobaccos and a proper wrapper.
Size is also a crucial factor in selecting a cigar. There are many different shapes, but the most common is the parejo. These cigars have a cylindrical shape with one end open and a round tobacco-leaf cap on the other.
They range from three inches to five inches long and have ring gauges between 20-30. They’re a popular choice for beginners because they’re small and easy to light.
The strength of a cigar is determined by how much nicotine it contains. If you’re a new smoker, it’s best to start with a mild cigar.
It’s also a good idea to take your time and enjoy the smoke. This will help you to experience the subtleties that make a cigar taste its best.
Once you’ve found a good cigar, it’s important to store it properly in a humidor to ensure it’s at the perfect level of humidity. Storing it in a humidor that’s too dry will result in it losing some of its natural oils, which will change the flavour and make it less enjoyable.
