601 cigars was a new lineof smokes that was introduced to the public in 2006. These are more offerings from Jose Pepin Garcia and are made in Esteli, Nicaragua. This factory is world renowned for its configuration of rollers and other experts in the field of growing and rolling tobacco. These smokes have received very high ratings across the board and many of the reviews are more than favorable. They are made by EO, a brand which is also known as the United Tobacco Company. Not too long ago, EO merged with Rocky Patel.
Perhaps one of the things that make the 601 cigars rather unique in the industry is that one can purchase them in an assortment of colors. Because they are varied in the embodiment of each, aficionados who are at any level of experience with smoking these fine sticks will find something that will be quite pleasing to them. There is the Black line that is a medium to full bodied type of stick. The filler is Nicaraguan tobacco, as is the binder, and it is topped off with a Connecticut wrapper. The Habano line is on the other end as a full bodied type of smoke.
The difference is in the wrapper as this offering has a Habano instead of a Connecticut. The Maduro line offers a smoke that sports a Maduro wrapper. Then there is the Habano Oscuro, which is a very full bodied offering. While its binder and filler echo the same ingredients as the other lines, the wrapper is a Habano Oscuro. Others in this line include the Cubao, the La Bomba, the Maduro , the Mi Barrio and the Murcielago.
601 cigars are available in different sizes for each line. While some of the lines may say that they are medium to full bodied, the makers guarantee that most aficionados will find that each of these lines are leaning far more toward the full bodied side. They even go as far as to say that these are not for the smokers who do not want the full punch of a great full bodied stick.
One reviewer said of 601 cigars, the Maduro, left the reviewer raving about how great this stick really is. During the initial light up of the stick, there was a great deal of smoke. The texture of the 601 cigars as they were breathed in was described as leaning heavily on the creamy side. There were flavor notes of cocoa as well as a nuttiness that had a sort of roasted taste to it according to the reviewer. This stayed consistent throughout, until the final third of the stick. During this last third, spiciness seemed to waft in and out. The creaminess of the chocolate and the roasted nuttiness, like that of almonds, which had been there all along, seemed to remain. Overall this was described as a very bold type of flavor that is not for the faint at heart. One reviewer went as far as to say that this stick might knock someone on their behind if they were not ready for it.
