A fifth size is coming to the E.P. Carrillo INCH Maduro line. On Episode 179 (3/17/16) of Stogie Geeks, Taylor Hall, Northeast Representative for E.P. Carrillo confirmed an 8 x 58 line extension is coming to the E.P. Carrillo INCH Maduro line. Earlier today, the company confirmed the new line extension, dubbed the No. 58 on its Facebook page. Plans are for the No. 58 to arrive at retailers in the next two weeks.
The E.P. Carrillo INCH Maduro No. 58 will feature the same blend as the INCH Maduro line. Hall said the cigars will be packaged in 24 count boxes and will have a suggested retail price of $10.00.
The new 8 x 58 becomes the thinnest ring gauge in the E.P. Carrillo INCH portfolio – which is geared at large ring gauge cigars. At the same time, 8 x 58 also becomes the longest E.P. Carrillo offering to date. It becomes the fifth vitola in the INCH Maduro line.
Hall said the new line extension is only geared to the INCH Maduro line at this time.
