The Inca brand was first introduced in 2012 by the English cigar retailer and managing director of C. Gars Ltd Mitchell Orchant. He wanted to offer a more affordable alternative to his mainly Cuban smoking customers.
The cigars are made at the Tabacalera del Oriente in Peru and are made entirely of Peruvian tobacco.
The cigar is dressed in a Colorado wrapper that appears slightly rustic but is smooth to the touch. Filling is uniform with a bit of give when squeezed.

Inca Secret Blend Roca: the cold draw reveals faint notes of herbs and hay. Once lit, it opens with pronounced notes of walnut, wood, and vegetal notes.
Overall, the Inca Secret Blend Roca is a decent smoke, at least for the first two-thirds. Considering the price point, you could look over the somewhat generic flavor profile, but the bitterness that comes in in the last third and covers most of the flavors makes for an unsatisfying end of the smoke.
