Inch C-99 by E.P. Carrillo is a long-awaited follow-up cigar to the hugely successful, 90-rated Inch Natural blend and its Maduro counterpart. Made in the Dominican Republic under the supervision of one of the greatest cigar makers of all time, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, Inch C-99, like its natural and Maduro brothers, comes in chunky sizes especially made for fans of big, fat cigars. The filler and binder blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco is the same recipe, but the difference, and it's a big one, is the gorgeous Corojo '99 wrapper leaf, hence the name of the cigar, C-99. The spicy Corojo leaf adds a whole new dimension of flavor to the already delicious Inch blend, making this one a cigar to be sure not to miss out on.
Ernesto Perez-Carillo is no newbie. He's the one responsible for the world-famous La Gloria Cubana and his tremendous own name brand, E.P. Carrillo Cigars. In the game for nearly 3 decades, Carrillo further proves he can keep up with the times by blending jaw-dropping sticks like Inch C-99. A hearty, full-bodied modern blend, C-99 boasts immaculate construction and a very productive draw, pulling forth giant clouds of thick, blue smoke. The initial flavor profile consists of leather, cedar, and tobacco, and is quickly complemented by notes of white pepper, coffee, and a few citrus notes here and there. A sweet, woody finish ties the package together. Due to the monstrous sizes of Inch C-99, expect a very slow, cool smoking experience. Set aside at least a couple hours for maximum enjoyment.
In all honesty, E.P. Carrillo cigars aren't meant for anyone short of experienced connoisseurs. To get introduced to Carrillo style sticks, beginners and intermediates should check out La Gloria Cubana or El Credito to ease in. Inch C-99, like most other E.P. Carrillo branded cigars, is blended with precision and skill to deliver immense complexity and smoothness, all while maintaining a full-bodied, hard-hitting smoking experience. Inch C-99 pairs well with bourbon, scotch, or full-bodied beer, and is best enjoyed after a hearty meal and with plenty of time set aside. Similar E.P. Carrillo big ring masterpieces include the original Inch blend and La Gloria Cubana Serie R. Refined, powerful, and masterfully blended, Inch C-99 by E.P. Carrillo is a connoisseur-level cigar perfect for fans of large ring sizes.
