People thought a few years back that the big ring cigar sensation was just a passing fad, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth as cigar makers can’t make the big-boy sizes fast enough. Back in 2012, Ernesto Perez Carrillo of La Gloria Cubana fame created the Inch, with ring sizes from 58 to 70, a big ash smoke with a whole lot of flavor. And now the master blender has delivered the Inch Colorado. No, it’s not named after the 38th state in the Union, but rather after its color, which the good people at Carrillo describe as a roasted almond brown. Lying within this gorgeous Colorado wrapper leaf is a Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobacco from both the Dominican Republic and Nicaraguan. This behemoth is a full bodied treat displaying creamy notes of wood, spice, dark chocolate and a nice smack of natural sweetness on the palate. "I call the Colorado the wrapper that is from the fifth and sixth primings," says Ernesto. "It has a reddish, dark tone while the Natural to me are the third and fourth primings, which has more of a brownish tone and is a bit thinner textured. I find the Colorado tends to dominate the blends a bit more." If you love the big ring sticks, you’ll want to order these up for yourself!
